Sodexho Prestige, the UK’s largest event caterer and corporate hospitality provider, has been awarded new catering business for next year’s Ryder Cup, which is to be held at the K Club in Ireland, with a turnover of around £1.5 million.
Sodexho Prestige is the UK’s largest event caterer and provider of corporate hospitality packages. The company provides catering at prestigious events such as the Chelsea Flower Show and Royal Ascot. It also provides catering at permanent visitor attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Knebworth House and Epsom Downs Racecourse.
The new business will include 7,000 hospitality covers over four days, all the public catering (except the mobiles on the golf course) and the catering for K Club members, PGA members, international pavilions and the media.
Sue Creed of Sodexho Prestige said, “We are delighted to have been awarded this business and believe that our expertise in event catering and our experience at other golfing events, such as The Open Championship where we have provided hospitality for over 20 years, will enable us to deliver a high quality service.”
Edward Kitson, Staging Director Ryder Cup, said, “We are delighted to be working with Sodexho on the Ryder Cup, providing services for the corporate hospitality clients and public, and we are confident that both the quality of food and service will be of the highest level.”
Sodexho Prestige will employ between 500 and 750 staff on site each day.
