Charlton House Secures New Contracts with Sanofi and SSCL
2014 got off to a wonderful start, as in January we learned that Charlton House had secured new contracts with global healthcare giant Sanofi and information technology provider SSCL.
Over a three year period, Charlton House will provide staff and visitor catering and hospitality for three facilities outside of the London area – one for SSCL in Newport and two for Sanofi, taking our total managed portfolio with the healthcare brand up to three.
The new contract with Sanofi is a dual-site agreement for its employee offices in Haverhill, Suffolk, and Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. We will be investing in a new look, upgraded restaurant and refreshing the site in the Haverhill facility, which is due to open in February 2015. The Holmes Chapel site recently reopened, offering a new look deli bar, salad bar and hot food service area. Its ‘Left Bank’ restaurant, which caters for all staff and visitors, also went through a rebranding exercise.
SSCL in Newport, South Wales, awarded Charlton House its catering business following a competitive tender process. SSCL provides business support services that enable public sector organisations to operate more effectively and efficiently. The company has asked us to help its employees enjoy a wider range of healthy food choices to enhance the work environment. Charlton House will provide a restaurant and café bar facility for SSCL Newport’s 400 employees.
Both new contracts are significant for our business, and we are delighted to bring global names in healthcare and business support services into our portfolio and to further expand the Charlton House business outside of London and into regional territories. This win clearly demonstrates that our approach to health, nutrition and wellbeing has resonance amongst employers who are looking to provide the best for their staff.
Both these companies invest in tools and technology that make it easier for people to conduct their day-to-day lives. In much the same way, our approach will give their employees convenient access to a wide variety of delicious, high quality meals and snacks, making it easier and more enjoyable for them to eat well in the workplace.
