Prestige Scotland predicts £1m sales increase for 2011

Catering company Prestige Scotland has predicted its sales for this year will finish £1m ahead of 2010.
It says summer sales will be a boosted by a series of concerts at venues serviced by Prestige Scotland, such as Take That at Hampden on 22-24 June, Rod Stewart at Aberdeen Football Club on 5 June, and Westlife at Hamilton Park Racecourse on 23 July.
The company, the Scottish catering division of Sodexo Prestige, services venues including Blair and Glamis Castles, Hampden Stadium, Aberdeen FC, Hamilton Park and Perth Racecourses, the National Galleries of Scotland, and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
Prestige Scotland’s Regional Director, Austin Tilsley, said: “The full year forecast looks strong and we are currently looking to increase our overall sales by £1m this year and in this tough environment we believe this is a result which gives the business strong foundations for the future.”
Between April and September, the company hopes to provide 100,000 hospitality covers, serve 500,000 pints of beer, provide 250,000 meals to visitors to tourist attractions, and cater to 150 weddings.
Highlights for the year include an increase in conference and banqueting sales at Hamilton Park racecourse, events business up at the Royal Botanic garden Edinburgh, overall business up at Aberdeen, and sales for the events business as a whole have improved by more than 20 per cent.
