From the outset we always aim to bring smart financial thinking to the table by considering, in an open and honest way, the long-term picture and the real benefits that the relationship will bring to both of us.

Our commercial team is widely experienced in the art of listening to and understanding our clients’ financial needs, so we can give you the best pricing structure possible, ensuring you get the finest food services at the fairest price.

We don’t shy away from a fair and frank discussion about cost; we know that, if we get the figures right, you’ll get the best that money can buy.

And for any partnership to work effectively, both parties have to be happy that the numbers stack up.

Guaranteeing Performance

AS THE SONG GOES, ‘MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND,’ AND OF COURSE, IT DOES.

But we also know that the way we meet your financial requirements needs to offer best value, rather than just being the cheapest - and that means more than just straight finance. We consider every aspect of the business and the ways we can add value to it, through innovative thinking that removes cost from the equation.

From the very first day of our relationship with you, through the day-to-day operation of each and every unit within your business, we continually measure, check, assess and report on our performance against the agreed service levels that form the basis of our partnership.

If we perform, we are rewarded accordingly; if not, we will know how much harder we need to work. Either way, everyone benefits.

Nothing motivates our teams more than the success that accompanies high performance, because they know it leads to mutually rewarding relationships.

Flexible Models

SO HOW DO WE PREPARE OUR FIGURES, TO MAKE THE BUDGET WORK IN A WAY THAT WILL SUIT YOUR TASTES AND PALATE?

Unsurprisingly, the way we create budgets, and the innovative thinking that has gone into building some of our most successful partnerships, is very much akin to the way we prepare our food.

We start with some core financial ingredients and a recipe that includes all the basic costs and a clear picture of what the overall outcome needs to look like. We then consider the best way to view the relationship; what types of financial structure will best suit you and your business.

Finally we look at the duration of the relationship and your specific needs, and put together a proposal that literally fits the bill.

Visibility & Transparency

NO ONE LIKES UNPLEASANT SURPRISES OR HIDDEN EXTRAS, WHETHER DELIBERATE OR NOT. IT’S NOT PROFESSIONAL AND NOT THE WAY THAT WE DO THINGS AROUND HERE.

Honesty has always been the best policy, and from the outset it’s the way our people and their teams will work with you.

When we put budgets together, we try to factor in everything that we can think of. We have learned from many incredible successes, and we’ve learned from the occasional failure too – as the saying goes, ‘You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs’.

We promise you the unvarnished truth, based on clear and transparent thinking. Our budgets are open, visible and easy to understand, without weasel words or dubious add-ons.

Scale & Accuracy

BIG MAY NOT ALWAYS BE BEAUTIFUL OR CLEVER, BUT IN THE CASE OF MATTERS FINANCIAL, DEPTH OF THOUGHT IS UTTERLY ESSENTIAL.

We don’t rely on asking an individual to scope your future operating budget and hope for the best; we assign a team to plan and deep-think the size, shape and way that the budget might work.

Nor are we content with one financial outcome. We like to model and consider other options and ‘what-ifs’ along the way. Are there other alternatives - clever solutions, cost controls – that will make our partnership with you work better?

And of course we cross-check, and ask our team of financial experts to double- and triple-check the numbers, to make sure they are accurate and that every possible contingency is taken into account.

Our Experience

FINANCIAL EXPERIENCE IS A VITAL INGREDIENT THAT WE BELIEVE WE BRING TO ANY NEW RELATIONSHIP, BECAUSE OF OUR LONG-TERM UNDERSTANDING OF THE BUSINESS GENERALLY, AND OUR LOVE FOR OUR CLIENTS’ BUSINESSES AND THEIR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS SPECIFICALLY.

It’s about getting a feel for the business – it becomes almost intuitive, because of the number of similar financial partnerships we have with so many clients.

It’s also about knowing what else needs to be done to make relationships work. While we’d never for a moment suggest that there are stock solutions, invariably there will be some useful reference points, based on long experience, that will help us to think creatively about you and your needs.

In the world of outsourced partnerships, we believe that enduring relationships are only sustainable based on credibility and experience; that’s what gives us the edge - getting the numbers right over the life of the contract.
