Catering giant Sodexo has scored a three-year hospitality, conference and banqueting contract at Dundee United’s Tannadice Park football stadium.
The Club has appointed Sodexo to develop the business and play an integral part in its growth strategy from the 2014/2015 Scottish Premier League season (SPL).
The growth plans will see the company’s new Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events arm offer bespoke catering and event packages for club delegates.
“We’ve been brought in for an initial three years to help drive the hospitality side of the business as well and help boost the growth of conference and banqueting, something we have had a great track record of at other venues across both Scotland and England,” commented Austin Tilsley, regional director of Sodexo Prestige in Scotland.
“Our chefs create dynamic, fresh menus using local ingredients whenever possible, something I believe will drive more new business to the club.”
Sodexo in Scotland already provides catering services at Pittodrie Stadium, home of fellow SPL club Aberdeen, and Hampden Park, the national football stadium. The Tannadice Park contract is its second venture in Dundee, after the Discovery Point visitor attraction.
The company said it is anticipated that the new win will help boost not only the club’s growth but also help influence tourists to visit the city as part of the wider Water Front development, set to see a £1b regeneration of the city
