Charlton House wins Maidstone TV studios contract
Foodservice firm Charlton House has won a contract to provide the catering at Maidstone TV Studios, where shows including ITV's Take Me Out are made.
Charlton House will start operating the catering at the site, which is also home to BBC's Later…with Jools Holland, from November this year.
It will provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks plus full hospitality services for up to 800 staff, film crew, cast members and studio audience members within an existing full service staff restaurant setting and a brand new facility; "The Diner" which is being installed this month, ahead of filming commencing for the new series of Take Me Out.
Catering was previously handled in-house.
A core team of six Charlton House staff will run the catering facility, with additional staff recruited to assist on filming days and for functions and after show parties.
CH&Co business and industry chief executive Caroline Fry said: "The glamorous, fast-paced world of TV is a new arena for Charlton House and we are very excited about this win. I'm delighted that we have impressed the team at Maidstone Studios with the standard of our food and our Wellbeingbeingwell approach. This represents an incredible opportunity to grow, expand and evolve the services for both the onsite clients and TV clients, and we are greatly looking forward to completing the overall offer at Maidstone and helping to make them the studio of choice."
