Restaurant Associates launches new events business

Restaurant Associates, part of Compass Group UK and Ireland, has launched a new high-end event catering and event management business, Radish.

Radish combines Restaurant Associates food offer with Rapport’s guest services to deliver events to business and industry clients.

“This is a really exciting time for Restaurant Associates,” says Managing Director, Andy Harris. “Over the last year we have reinvigorated our business; creating fantastic supplier partnerships, new food concepts and embedding Rapport into our family. Radish is the next natural step on this journey and I have no doubt that our events business will grow.”

Heading up the Radish events team is Claire Taylor, who previously worked for London caterer Zafferano for five years.

Radish was formally launched at the Restaurant Associates’ client summer party, 19 June.
