• Servest acquires Catering Academy Ltd

        • Facilities management provider, Servest, has acquired Catering Academy Ltd in a strategic move to grow the Group’s catering division.

          Catering Academy is an independent catering company that has built a reputation for bringing innovative solutions to a wide range of catering and ancillary services for the business and industry, education and healthcare sectors. Formed in 2004 by Louise Wymer and Kevin Cannon, the company operates nationally and works with many Blue Chip organisations.

          The acquisition will enable the Servest Food Company to expand and develop its presence in the education sector. Servest initially approached Catering Academy in 2015, believing the dynamic catering company would be a good cultural fit. Kevin Cannon, Louise Wymer and the senior management team will remain in place to facilitate a smooth transition.

          Rob Legge, Group Chief Executive Officer UK and Europe at Servest said, “the acquisition of Catering Academy forms a part of Servest’s growth strategy and will help develop our already successful catering division. This decision demonstrates our commitment to boosting the Group’s footprint in the education sector and will enable us to offer additional expertise to our clients. I look forward to working with Catering Academy’s senior management team on assimilating the business into the Group.”

          Louise Wymer, Co-Founder and Director of Catering Academy added, “we are excited to join forces with such an illustrious organisation in order to continue providing excellent service to our strong client base.”
