Lindley Venue Catering has won the hospitality catering contract at Tottenham Hotspur from Kudos, in a deal reported to be worth more than £20m.
Lindley had previously worked alongside Crown Group-owned by Kudos at the White Hart Lane stadium with responsibility for concourse catering, while Kudos delivered the hospitality.
Lindley as part of the five year deal will assume responsibility for the non-match day sales and marketing of the venue.
Chief executive Adam Elliott commenting on the new arrangements said.
“When I took over we managed two stadiums where we did non-match day selling. Now, 18 months on, we’re up to about 12 because we’re showing that not only can we manage a stadium, we can sell and promote it, too,” he said.
“A stadium has the potential to operate 365 days a year. That way my fixed costs on site will be used wisely and I am delivering better opportunities for the client.”
Lindley will expand its kiosks, originally piloted on the east stand of the ground, to the remaining three stands.
Elliott since taking over as Chief Executive at Lindley Group in October 2010 has been responsible for a string of new and retained business reported to be worth in excess of £90m.
Commenting on Lindley’s success he said:
“I’ve got a really good team behind me. We changed the perception of Lindley in the marketplace and we are now seen as a credible caterer that can tender for all aspects of a business – not just public retail.”
