Confused by Catering?

Is our catering external?
If your local authority or a private catering company manage your kitchen or deliver hot meals to you, your catering is external.

Is our catering in house?
If you self-manage your catering service, employ your own team, create your own menus, and manage the ordering process, your catering is in-house.

Still not sure?
Ask your administrator / business manager or give one of our team a call on 0117 314 5180.
