Our Approach

Our support and advice commenced in 2012 with undertaking a catering operational review and detailed financial benchmark and audit of employee catering, hospitality and fine dining facilities at the London HQ. This also included providing market data, intelligence and advice in relation to trends, contract types and service level agreements. Following this initial review we have supported Hiscox through a full catering tender process, including development of all tender documents; introductions to relevant potential catering partners; negotiation and mobilisation.

Montfort Catering Consultants also developed a scope of services and supported Hiscox with the planning and development phase for their workplace catering and hospitality services within the iconic new Hiscox York building. This also included undertaking a full catering tender exercise to appoint a suitable catering operator for the new landmark building. Following mobilisation and opening, we have provided on-going catering operational and financial review support services for the on-site catering services.
