Anglia Ruskin University is seeking a catering partner to provide catering services for the Cafe at their Guild House campus in Peterborough, which is a dedicated health, education and social care campus.
As part of ARU’s future vision and strategy, it is expanding their partnering relationships.
Catering at Guild House is currently proved by PRC Ventures based at Peterborough College. The facilities provide a small cafe on the top floor that is supported by an open kitchen. Current turnover is approx GPB 21k per annum, and is a 12 month a year operation. ARU pay a capped subsidy of 1.5k GBP per month to the incumbent to cover the cost of service.
The opportunity is for a fixed term 2 year contract from 1.7.2020 to 1.7.2022 and may be the start of a more progressive partnership with ARU.
Current opening hours are 8:30 to 16:00, but the University would consider 9:30 to 15:30 for a justifiable business case. We are advised TUPE will not apply, but interested parties will be informed of this as the opportunity prevails.

7) Reliability of service provision and cover in team absences,
