First Choice Group win two Catering Insight awards
9th December 2019
First Choice Group are proud and humbled to announce we were selected as the winners of two Catering Insight awards, at the ceremony on Thursday, last week.
Catering Insight named First Choice Group as the winners of the Service and Support award and the Training and Education award.
The publication cited our continuous promotion in the use of OEM parts as part of the reason for our nomination. This has been enhanced through investment in improved supply channels and increased stock holdings, as well as our enhanced logistical solutions including later cut off times and developed warehouse patterns, which now includes weekend coverage for better service and support.
For the Training and Education award, Catering Insight referenced our training division, which over the past year, has seen development and growth within the manufacturer-specific courses, as well as our continuous support to the foodservice industry with catering-specific, City and Guilds approved, ACS gas and CCEEC courses, by catering engineers – to catering engineers.
We take pride in our heavy investment in versatile people who are skilled in IT, procurement and all-round customer service skills and our CFSP & CIPS qualified members and specific manufacturer-trained experts.
In addition, First Choice Group’s Managed Learning Programme was praised for leading the way for new gas engineers, promoting safety and integrity.
First Choice Group were honoured to be awarded these accolades on the same year we celebrated our 20th year in business, especially as the votes were independently cast from within the industry.

“The Training and Education award reflects the professionalism and dedication from Martin Dagnell and his team. Thank you to all who have supported First Choice Group, during 2019.”
