Delaware North Companies UK, a provider of hospitality and food services, has signed two new partnerships; one with Fulham FC and one with Blink at Wembley Stadium.
In a deal concluded this week, the contract with Fulham FC will see the company take over all catering provision at the club’s Craven Cottage stadium including the general admission concourses, hospitality boxes and lounges, and non-match day conferences and events.
From year three of the deal, which has the potential to run for 10, Delaware North will also be responsible for the catering and hospitality at the Club’s new Riverside Stand which is currently in the planning stage. A new riverside café, open to the public, will also form part of this development and will be included under Delaware North’s remit.
“We’re delighted to have been awarded the contract at Fulham FC, especially during such a significant period of investment for the club,” says Doug Tetley, MD at Delaware North Companies (UK).
Delaware’s three-year partnership with Blink at Wembley Stadium will see Blink provide additional specialist food partners, to complement Delaware’s core offer within the stadium.
Blink is a group of specialist food and beverage brands partnered together by Simon Carey in 2012. The partners are made up of different specialist high street brands, street food operators and producers.
“We are pleased to be working with Blink, the diverse range of its partners means we can target the offer for each event demographic while adding a sense of fun and festival,” says Simon Harrington, Business Development and Marketing Director at Delaware North (UK).
