CH&CO has announced that it is to merge its Scottish business with Inspire Catering, a niche caterer based in Stirling with operations across Scotland.
Founded in 2008 by David Pease and Lorna McFarlane, Inspire Catering serves 14,000 customers every day across the workplaces and the education sectors. It also caters for more independent school pupils in Scotland than any other caterer. Pease and McFarlane will continue in their current roles and take responsibility for CH&CO’s existing contracts in Scotland.
CH&CO’s has an ambition to become a leading player in the Scottish food and hospitality industry and will make further investments in Scotland.
CH&CO’s CEO Bill Toner said: “For some time now we’ve had a strong desire to grow our market share and invest in Scotland. Inspire Catering is the ideal partner for us to achieve this and the merging of our Scottish businesses now makes us a significant and dynamic player in the Scottish market.”
