OfficeServe Invests £1M to Bring Fresh Food to London Offices

2018 was a big year for OfficeServe. We doubled our menu offering, doubled our team size, increased orders by 300% and delivered freshly made sandwich platters to hungry offices across London. In addition to launching a successful shared salad range, we focused on adding more options for our vegan, vegetarian, halal and gluten-free customers. Our partnership with Jeanie Marshal Foods and support from our parent company, The Food Solutions Group, has placed OfficeServe among a family of successful foodservice businesses. 

We close 2018 with one final announcment — we invested £1M to expand our new Aylesbury kitchen in collaboration with our sister company, Chiltern Foods. With strong support from The Rt Hon David Lindington CBE, Aylesbury MP, our new production facility features top of the line equipment and delivers food saftey standards on which our customers rely. Check out pictures of the opening ceremony and the official press release below. 

We look forward to serving you and your office in 2019!

OfficeServe Invests £1M to Bring Fresh Food to London Offices  

OfficeServe —  the team making it easy to order food platters online, for delivery to office meetings, invests c. £1M to expand new Aylesbury production site in collaboration with sister company, Chiltern Foods.  

Investment comes after closing a £6M debt and equity funding round earlier this year and building up an unrivaled suite of foodservice companies — parent company, The Food Solutions Group, now owns OfficeServe, Chiltern Foods and Jeanie Marshal Foods. 


The new 20,000 square foot site, 
which officially opened on 14 December with support from The Rt Hon David Lidington CBE, Aylesbury MP, positions OfficeServe to dominate London’s office catering market. OfficeServe’s USP of in-house food production and 100% ownership of the customer experience enables the team to hold ground in London’s competitive office food delivery market.  

Uniquely, OfficeServe is not a catering marketplace. OfficeServe does not rely on third-party vendors, often with fluctuating quality and food safety standards, to deliver food to its corporate clients. Rather, OfficeServe’s USP is to control the entire food supply chain and prepare food in their own SALSA and BRC food safety accredited kitchens, which produce well over 2,000 meals per day. 

“The expansion of our sister company’s production capacity will support the continued growth in demand for OfficeServe’s business catering solution for breakfast and lunch meetings in and around London,” says OfficeServe CEO Christoph Haschka 


OfficeServe’s
 2018 growth has been rapid. After reaching the 4,000-order milestone last week, orders have grown 300% in calendar year 2018 with big growth plans for 2019. 

"OfficeServe represents the high-growth part of the group's strategy. Being part of a group of food manufacturers has enabled us to innovate on our food development, offering more than just the obvious choice of sandwich platters. This year we introduced a now popular range of sharing salads and healthier options, catering to the increasing need for healthier and gluten free options for the office lunch,” adds Haschka
