Is External Contracting the answer for your Catering or Bar operation?



Would you rather your leisure management focused their time and effort on providing leisure services?  Are your food and labour costs out of control?  Do you believe that you struggle to provide a quality catering service to your customers?  Do you make a real commercial profit?


If you believe that your catering operation will have a longer term future operated by a specialist external contractor RQA can help source the right company for you. 


Most contractors have a level of income below which they are not interested in tendering although exceptional circumstances can encourage exceptional offers!  National catering companies, because they have larger overheads, seek higher levels of income.


RQA's External Contracting Service will very swiftly assess what the true potential is for your business and provide estimated concession rental levels.  We will manage the entire competitive tendering process for you, including production of all draft documentation, ensuring that you receive the most competitive offers from the right type of company commensurate with the nature and scope of your catering service.


RQA brings substantial knowledge and experience to the competitive tendering process gained over many years and for a wide range of clients. We have an intimate knowledge of how contractors operate, the information they require, and will identify those that are most capable of aligning themselves with the Client’s operational ethos.
