When school's out for the summer

Harrison Catering Services clients' partnerships continue when the final bell rings for the summer holidays

Posted by Stephanie Broad | August 26, 2016 | Catering & hospitality

Many independent schools have embraced opportunities to engage with new audiences whilst the school is quieter throughout the summer months. From international schools to summer weddings Harrison is constantly offering a variety of styles from relaxed fun barbeques to high end creative menus, reflecting the individuality of an occasion, supporting their clients in a fast paced competitive market place.

Mark Stower, Director of Food and Service at Harrison, says: “Partnership working with schools is essential to help drive their out of school business forward. Diversification within the market continues to trend and catering can play a huge part in supporting business growth.”

Most independent schools are perfectly suited for wedding receptions in the school holidays and Harrison has the experience and expertise to accommodate a wedding parties every need. There’s been a hive of activity this summer which has culminated in the production of the finest menus and innovative dishes, enabling our talented chefs to showcase their innovation and skills to make the happy couples wedding day memorable and absolutely outstanding.

It’s not just wedding parties but international schools where catering is very carefully considered too. Overseas students enjoy food prepared on site using fresh ingredients and in harmony with the seasons, dishes include our rich heritage of British cuisine as well as food and flavours from around the world helping to create that home from home experience and assist with the school welcoming back their guests year after year. 

These are just a sample of the initiatives that Harrison support their independent schools clients with. So when the term ends and the children depart for the holidays it may be the beginning of a whole new opportunity for your school.
