WESTBURY STREET HOLDINGS Ltd (WSH) has reported a 14% increase in turnover from 2001-2012, marking a twelfth year of strong growth for the company.
The privately owned catering and hospitality company – parent company of BaxterStorey, Caterlink, Holroyd Howe, Benugo and Portico - has grown to a turnover of more than £465 million since the group’s creation in 2000.
Alastair Storey, Chief Executive of WSH, said: "I'm exceptionally proud of the outstanding results being achieved across our businesses, and would like to thank our staff for their energy, hard work, dedication and entrepreneurial spirit. Our continued commitment to providing the highest quality service and using fresh locally sourced produce has ensured that we are able to consistently defy the downturn, in spite of increasingly challenging economic conditions.
"2013 looks set to be yet another fragile year for both the UK and European economies, but we have already secured some exciting new contract wins and retentions for this year and are encouraged by the strength of our current pipeline. Importantly, the success we have achieved to date allows us our major investment in training and development of our teams which we believe will build towards an even stronger future."
The company’s success has attracted industry attention, with Storey pipping Jamie Oliver to the UK's 'Most Powerful Person in Hospitality' title this year.
