Garsons Garden Centre awards £2.4m catering contract
Instore specialises in delivering restaurant and café food services for many of the UK's leading retail brands, and has already worked with Garsons to introduce a new food offer. It has also refurbished the garden centre's restaurant.

The new menus feature a choice ranging from traditional cooked breakfasts, porridge and pastries to deep-dish quiches and Sunday roasts. A separate children's menu is available and there are also freshly-baked muffins, scones and brownies as well as a selection of beers, wines and ciders.

The food is displayed using props and materials including crates, slates, wood blocks and Astroturf.

Instore business director Andy Rees said: "We're over the moon to have won this new contract and we're really excited about nurturing our budding relationship with Garsons."

It is Instore's first venture into the garden centre sector.

Garsons director Ben Thompson added that central to the company's decision to award the contract to Instore was "its combination of market-leading food and drink knowledge coupled with winning design ideas and dedicated operational expertise".
