“Henry Watts, Managing Director, Servest Catering comments: “These are fantastic wins for the business. Since the acquisition of 7 Day Catering by Servest a year ago, it really has been ‘business as usual’. In fact, what we’re experiencing since the acquisition is many more opportunities for catering services as customers look to bundle soft services to improve their offer and create a more cost effective and efficient management structure.”
