Compass Group UK & Ireland’s Instore business picks up top award


Compass Group UK & Ireland’s Instore business is celebrating after winning an award at Glee, the UK’s largest garden living and outdoor tradeshow held in Birmingham.

Instore provides restaurant and café food services to many of the UK’s most respected retail brands, including foodservice solutions to the garden retail market.

The business won Glees New Product Award’s Retail Experiences and Services category and was recognised for offering an exceptional service and an attractive proposition to garden retailers who are looking for a leading foodservice offer.

Ed Fletcher, Business Development Manager at Instore, said: “We are extremely proud to have won such a great award and to have been recognised for the dedication and work we put into our garden retail offer. Our main priority is to provide innovative and successful foodservice solutions whilst allowing our clients to focus on their core business - they can then grow their business while we grow their foodservice sales. We have found that by providing a great experience in these cafes and restaurants, it enhances the customer’s visit to the garden centre, making it more likely they will return.  We look forward to expanding the business within the garden retail market.”

Trevor Pfeiffer from Garden Trade News, organisers of the award, said: “The judges selected Compass for this award for the unique and innovative foodservice solution they can offer garden centres. They felt that Compass’ offering is really relevant in today’s garden retail marketplace where garden retailers struggle to focus on all the increasingly diverse parts of their business. “
