407547-2012: UK-Glasgow: Canteen and catering services

To support its catering vision, the University would like to invite tender bids to support the delivery of its future catering service provision. This tender is viewed as an exciting opportunity to work in partnership with the University to develop a creative service provision approach which will transform catering services within a leading University.
In developing and improving its existing catering services, the University seeks to appoint a contractor to provide interim management resource and related support services to assist the University in ensuring the competing demands of different client groups are fully satisfied. The contractor must be able to provide the University with advice and guidance in responding to food trends, facility investments and service provision, with particular regard to a brand-conscious student generation and from commercial clients that have high expectations in relation to both cost and quality. The University seeks to move away from the current traditional institutional approach to catering and provide services more in alignment with High Street food provision.
