Cucina has spring in its step with two new wins

Cucina has won two new contracts and seen weekly sales rocket since opening the new restaurants in January.

Shoeburyness High School in Essex and Bexleyheath School in Kent are receiving restaurant quality food delivered by catering expert Cucina. The three year contracts will make fresh food available to the 1,700 pupils at Shoeburyness High School and the 2,000 pupils at Bexleyheath School. Daily sales figures have increased by an average of 23% per day at Bexleyheath School and 14% per cent per day at Shoeburyness High School.

Catering expert Cucina has also announced their latest range of healthy spring menus, which are now available across all of their 29 restaurants across England. They include tricolore salad with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and olives, mandarin and gingerbread upside down pudding with vanilla ice cream, as well as the new range of designer pizzas and focaccia containing hidden courgettes and carrots.

Steve Quinn, Managing Director of Cucina, said:

“It’s great to have happy clients who can see sales shooting up already. Cucina’s new spring menus are tasty, fun and fresh and are proving successful across our restaurants. Our ‘stealthy eating’ approach has helped us more than double the uptake of school dinners in our restaurants across England. It has also enabled our partner schools to significantly reduce their catering costs.”

Mike Headon, Bexleyheath School Business Manager, said:

“The quality of food Cucina produce is excellent and we are very satisfied with the all round provision, including the high quality of the service. Cucina has really made a difference – within a couple of weeks of Cucina starting, the Cucina team were given a letter by a pupil to say thank you.”

Vanessa Morrison, Office Manager at Bexleyheath School, added:
“The food Cucina produce is brilliant and always fresh – you can tell it’s made fresh. I have not experienced this quality of food in a school before. The service is really colourful, eye-catching and displayed interestingly. The pupils are picking up on Cucina’s ideas, like American diners, birthday parties and Valentine’s Day – far more are having lunches there than ever before. The pupils are really impressed and it’s nice to see them enjoying their food.”

Kathleen Hodgson, Bursar for Shoeburyness High School, said:
“The food choice Cucina provide is VERY good and the atmosphere in the Cucina restaurant is excellent. Already, everyone has been supportive of the quality of the food Cucina delivers.”

Cucina Restaurants Ltd serves fresh food to over 25,000 pupils at 29 contracts up and down the country and is committed to providing quality, healthy meals at all schools.
