Catermasters snap up Bite Catering

We are pleased to announce that we have just completed the acquisition of Bite Catering Limited.

As a business, we have been actively looking to increase our presence in and around the London area and the acquisition of Bite is a significant and exciting step towards achieving this goal.

Bite currently operates eight contracts in London, the Home Counties and the South East and has a turnover of approximately £2.2 million. As well as inheriting eight contracts, we have also welcomed the 55-strong Bite workforce to our ranks.

"Bite is a much smaller company than Catermasters but its approach to workplace catering and general business model is very similar to ours," our joint managing director, Nigel Johnson, said.

"Like us, Bite places a huge emphasis on using fresh, seasonal ingredients to cook fantastic food, employing the best people in the industry and running restaurants, coffee bars and delis that people inside the workplace genuinely want to use.

"Therefore, this acquisition is great news for both companies and myself and the rest of the Catermasters team are very much looking forward to working alongside our talented new friends at Bite."
