David Penlington has been appointed a Director at Signature Dining, the UK’s only dedicated independent contract caters to the traditional care, extra care, assisted living and retirement village sectors.
David is reuniting with Founder Director Paul Robottom, with the pair having working together previously for eight years at leading contract caterer Caterplus.
“At Signature Dining our vision is to enhance the everyday lives of our customers, by offering a broad range of fresh, home style seasonal menus, cooked from scratch daily, prepared with passion and served with professional courtesy, by an empowered team in a fun environment,” said Paul.
‘’David adds significant strength and depth to our senior team, bringing a wealth of sales and operational expertise, combined with nurturing excellent client relationships and a passion for ensuring that promises are exceeded.”
Paul and David have more than 50 years combined experience in nurturing a holistic view to food and service delivery.
Launched in February 2016, Signature Dining has won five contracts in the last seven months with a combined annual turnover of over £1.4m.
Paul commented: “The last 18 months has seen a significant shift in the care catering arena with a number of key independent players being acquired by major PLCs. This has opened a significant gap for the smaller independent company that has the capability and commitment to provide a truly personal and attentive service.”
Signature Dining is part of Genuine Dining Group.
