Woodward wins Little Chef supply contract

Woodward Foodservice has secured a three-year deal with Little Chef, worth more than pound;12m a year.

Woodward will deliver fresh, frozen, chilled and ambient food to all the 230 Little Chef outlets across the UK. It was appointed as supplier by The People’s Restaurant Group (PRG), which purchased Little Chef for pound;52m last year.

Woodward will supply a 400-strong food product range to Little Chef and the chain’s 14 Coffee Tempo! concessions.

Ed Hyslop, chief executive of Woodward Foodservice said: “We’re very excited about working with Little Chef – it is one of the UK’s best-known restaurant brands.

“The offering will change significantly this year, and we will be playing a key role in this.

“With our recent investment in a pound;9m fleet of 150 vehicles, and continued expansion of our food product ranges, we’re in a perfect position to deliver a high-quality service to national restaurant chains and independents.”

Nick Smith, development director at PRG, said: “Woodward has worked with national restaurant chains for a number of years and fully understands the dynamics of our business. With this expertise and its recent investment in a new fleet, the company is best placed to give us a highly efficient and flexible service.”
