Jasper's Newcastle wins 'Franchisee of the Year' at the 2011 Startups Awards
Jasper’s has announced that its Newcastle franchisee has been named 'Franchisee of the Year' at the 2011 Startups Awards, sponsored by Natwest. The awards ceremony took place at Kensington Roof Gardens on 2nd December.
Managing Director of Jasper’s Newcastle, Sue Burrows, said: “2011 has been a fantastic year for us. Our business is running smoothly with a strong customer base and we have added some big contract wins. In fact, the business has proved so successful that we are now planning to open our second Jasper’s franchise in Newcastle, run by our daughter Claire.”
According to the information provided, Jasper’s Corporate Catering provides fresh, quality buffet food to business customers for events such as lunches, meetings, training and conferences as well as vending and on-site catering such as workplace canteens and coffee shops. It is franchising now across the UK.
The judges commented on the business saying: “Jasper’s Newcastle are
stand-out winners of the Franchisee of the Year award. Started by a mother and
daughter team who initially wore chef’s whites and hairnets in the morning while
making the lunches, drivers hats at lunchtime to deliver the food and business
suits in the afternoon for cold-calling new customers, they now employ a team of
20 over three locations. Their growth in turnover and profitability are
commendable as is their tenacity to continue striving while companies around
them are closing.” (kbp)
