First Choice Group at the Catering Insight Awards 2018

28th November 2018

The Catering Insight Awards is one of the most anticipated events in the catering equipment calendar and this year First Choice Group are proud to be up for a Supplier of the Year Award.

Recognised in the Supplier of the Year: Service and Support shortlist, First Choice Group sits alongside other industry companies who have been nominated into the category based on their commitment to investing in after-sales and warranty support, in turn allowing them to further provide excellent customer service.

We would like to thank Catering Insight for our nomination, with the publication citing our notable achievements in the last year, including the launch of our new mobile app and the partnership agreed with Brita which has enabled us to stock the innovative Vivreau ViTap.

As well as being nominated for an award, we are also proud to be sponsoring the Distributor Service and Maintenance Provider of the Year Award. This category rewards those that are blazing a trail when it comes to repairing, maintaining and servicing kitchens.

The nominees for this category are Acme Facilities Group, Caterfix, Crystaltech, Hatherley Commercial Services and Sylvester Keal. All five of these firms do a fantastic job at ensuring the critical job of maintaining, servicing and repairing catering equipment is always complete to the highest of standards.

The Catering Insight Awards is set to take place at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in Holborn, London, on Thursday, November 29th. At the event, our Managing Director, John Whitehouse, will be presenting the Supplier of the Year: Training and Education Award on behalf of CESA.

This award recognises those manufacturers who have invested heavily in education programmes over the past 12 months. The contenders are Carpigiani, Jestic Foodservice Equipment, Linda Lewis Kitchens, Maidaid Halcyon and Rational.

First Choice Group is thrilled to be involved with this prestigious award ceremony and are looking forward to seeing results not just in our own category, but the Maintenance Provider, Training and Education, and all other distributor and supplier categories.
