Company to serve healthy food to leading academic minds at Oxford UniversityCharlton House, the specialist in high quality staff catering in business and industry environments, has secured an annual contract to provide staff and student catering for Oxford University’s new Mathematical Institute on the redeveloped ten-acre Radcliffe Observatory Quarter in Oxford. Previously housed in three separate locations, all parts of the University’s Mathematics department are now in one dedicated facility, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects.
Charlton House already provides catering services for multiple University Departments. The new contract will commence on 2nd September 2013 and will involve a team of eight Charlton House staff providing restaurant and hospitality services for the 1,400 students, academics and faculty staff. The team will also provide catering services at a large number of conferences and events held at the Mathematical Institute.
Charlton House was awarded the contract based on the University’s satisfaction with the catering being delivered at its other locations. Its reputation in these other facilities gave the University the confidence to trust Charlton House to match and continually evolve the services it offers.
Charlton House Chief Executive Caroline Fry said, “We are thrilled to be extending the scope of our excellent working relationship with the University of Oxford - based on demonstrating our ability to understand their vision for the new facility. Our current offering at the University is held in high regard and we clinched the contract by demonstrating our passion for delivering healthy, nutritious, delicious food and our commitment to matching the standards that are already enjoyed at the Examination Schools and other University sites in this exciting new location within the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter. We are proud to have been entrusted with the responsibility of feeding the brightest and best of Mathematical academia, and are committed to providing them with the very best nutrition during their working or studying day.”
