Foodservice firm Bartlett Mitchell has picked up £3m of new business since the start of the New Year, the largest being with employee benefits organisation Unum.
The new three-year deals with three different organisations across London and the South add five new operations to the caterer's portfolio, and 1,500 possible new customers a day. More than 20 new staff members will join the company as a result of the contract awards.
Mark Baker, head of property services at Unum, commented: "For all the many areas that my teams work across, catering has to be the most important one to get right. Food is such an emotive and subjective issue that is so visible every minute of every day.
"We were so impressed by Bartlett Mitchell's unending passion for what it does and unrivalled commitment to its customers. Combine that with a clear alignment with our own corporate values and this made them the natural choice for Unum."
Bartlett Mitchell will cater for three Unum sites in Dorking, Basingstoke and Bristol.
