‘The perfect catering partner for stadia’
At Lindley we are proud of our experience and roots in sport and we are pleased to call ourselves specialists in stadium and venue catering.
Through our knowledge of both the specific demands of catering in this sector, and also our nationwide infrastructure; we are experts in managing both retail kiosks and fine-dining hospitality outlets. Our diverse client portfolio ranges from Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and Leicester Tigers Rugby Union to Essex County Cricket Club and Ffos Las Racecourse.
Our approach to public catering is very simple – we offer good quality food at value for money prices, served efficiently and with a smile. This for us is a winning formula and we stick to it. As a result, we have an excellent track record of driving spend per head at all of our client locations.
We achieve sales growth through new innovative food offers, improving signage and introducing mobile units, whilst also focusing on offers, promotions and loyalty schemes to encourage fans to spend more money inside the stadium rather than outside.
Catering within football stadia has traditionally lagged behind commercial high street food outlets, both in terms of food quality and the ‘look & feel’ of the kiosks. We have introduced a series of new brands into the football environment to drive sales and improve the customer experience – for more detail click here.
Matchday hospitality is about excellent customer service and high-quality food. We tailor our offer at each of our venues by creating bespoke, rotating menus using locally-sourced ingredients to create classic, uncomplicated dishes, supported by well-trained and knowledgeable service staff.
Enhancing the overall hospitality experience within our venues is a challenge we relish and is achieved through exceptional catering and working closely in partnership with our clients to develop the best offer for a particular hospitality lounge.
Our overall vision for our hospitality areas is that our customers' senses are on full alert when entering any of the lounges; rooms will be filled with a tantalising aroma while eyes feast on the vibrant, colourful food displays. .
We manage the sales and marketing function at 14 of our client venues; from start to finish, we manage and deliver the best events.
We have considerable experience in providing catering for all manner of events ranging from private functions and conferences to more high profile events such as the new A-Class Mercedes Benz car launch at The Hepworth Wakefield. We provide catering for hospitality events at the majority of our venues throughout the group and our experience in selling venues, doubling turnover and overseeing events is second to none.
This gives us invaluable experience and knowledge of planning an event from start to finish, not only generating delicious, innovative and varied menus for our clients but also working with them to deliver the best event experience.
