Retail, staff and visitor catering /
A space for everyone
Our retail services create the spaces patients, visitors and clinicians need to rest and recharge. We’re here for everyone: from the professional picking up a quick and tasty bite to eat, the patient taking precious moments out from the hospital setting, to the visitor eating with us so that they don’t have to cook alone at home.
Home grown branded outlets
We use our foodservice roots to deliver a wide choice of great value fresh and healthy food and drink in our Wellspring restaurants, Coffee House cafés and Amigo outlets. Every taste experience has been carefully designed by our chefs to nourish and revive, and we’re committed to creating menus that meet the government’s healthy eating requirements. We carry out regular research to make sure we’re offering exactly what people are looking for, when they want it. Plus, because we believe in giving back, we support social enterprises in our ranges, including the Change Please coffee scheme and clean water project, Life Water.
A restaurant or café can be so much more than a place to eat; it can be a community base. That’s why we often create multi-functional spaces, with areas for private meetings as well as communal seating. Our chefs also use our outlets for running teaching kitchens, hosting special events and catering pop-ups.
Our partnerships with Costa, M&S and Subway bring high-street favourites to your healthcare setting, helping people escape into familiar, comforting environments. This is retail done by retailers, so we run every outlet as if it were a flagship store, achieving the highest standards of service with staff trained to live brand values.
We’ll tailor an outlet to perfectly fit your space, then expertly run it to maximise your financial returns through the life of the contract. And, because we continually monitor foodservice trends, our offers exactly match what customers are looking for – from a grab-and-go lunch to a freshly ground cup of coffee or a ready meal for tonight’s dinner.
Innovating for retail excellence
Innovation underpins our cafés, restaurants and retail stores and will be critical to continued commercial catering success. We weave the latest technology through everything we do. It keeps us ahead of customer experience trends and drives the efficiency that creates profit.
Our latest innovations focus on technology that makes things easier for customers, such as touch screen menus and electronic feedback systems. We also have dedicated application businesses that generate a stream of new ways to improve our offerings, such as a pre-ordering and loyalty app.
