New hires at Paddy & Scott’s starting to pay dividends
24/05/2018 - Paddy & Scott's
Recent additions to the growing Paddy & Scott’s team, Jonathan Reed and John Clement, have reason to celebrate as leading hospitality, leisure and conference venue Wyboston Lakes Resort announces a five-year contract with the Suffolk-based coffee supplier.
As part of the multi-year agreement, worth over £500k, to provide all coffee, machinery and branding, Paddy & Scott’s have been commissioned to design and build a ‘Shoreditch’ style conference coffee house, as part of the refurbishment project at the newly renamed Woodlands Event Centre and at various other coffee points across the Resort.
An initial capital investment of £150k in the refuelling station, machines and other fixtures and fittings is being financed by Wyboston Lakes Resort, ensuring delegates will be fully energised throughout the day. In addition to serving high street, craft quality coffee, the fuelling station will offer a wide range of crafted drinks and snacks, all included in the daily delegate rate.
The partnership will also provide ongoing operational support and specialist training to Wyboston Lakes Resort team members, enabling them to become fully SCA Barista certified, engage with the coffee farm in Kenya and enjoy barista competitions to drive standards
This facility is set to open in early September 2018 at the same time as the newly created 300 capacity Rosewood Suite at The Woodlands Event Centre.
Commenting on the announcement, Steve Jones, Operations Director at Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “Paddy & Scott’s ethical approach to business, such as having their own coffee farm in the shade of the eastern side of Mount Kenya in northern Nairobi, allows them to support their local community and aligns perfectly with our own values as a proudly independent venue that provides great value, service and hospitality to our clients. We don’t just pay lip service to corporate social responsibilities, but we live and breathe these throughout all aspects of our business”
Jon Reed, Brand Director at Paddy & Scott’s, added: “So much can be achieved from a humble cup of coffee and we’re incredibly proud that Wyboston Lakes shares our vision to fuel ambition for its guests and team members. It’s great to have a partnership that is focused on raising the bar and disrupting the world of boring coffee. We’re absolutely rewriting the rule book when it comes to conference coffee!”
