It’s been almost a year since Team North mobilised, and what a year it has been. From the 1st of January 2018, the North have been dedicated to delivering first class service and strove to make a tangible difference to all customers. Site transformations began in the summer and by autumn, all Junior Ranks’ diners were transformed into Eatery Food Courts. Brands such as Costa, Starbucks and Papa Johns were introduced across the estate, menus were refreshed and high-street concepts were developed by dedicated culinary leads.
Therefore, team North thought it would be fitting to celebrate all of this amazing activity with an end of year bash, awarding key stars who shone throughout the year. On Thursday 29th November, Alamein Mess played host to the North’s first Recognition Awards. The event was sponsored by suppliers such as Britvic, Carabao, Coca Cola Enterprises, and Grenade. And, the night celebrated colleagues from all aspects of the business; from Cleaning Teams to Mess Accountants.
Chef of the Year winner Mark Wainwright from Imphal Barracks said “It’s been an extremely busy, yet rewarding year. I’d like to thank my team of chefs and my front of house operators for their hard work and dedication throughout 2018. I’d also like to extend my thanks to every member of Aramark Defence Service North team and wish them all a very merry Christmas. It may have been a tough year, but I personally believe we have an amazing group of people who will achieve amazing things in 2019 ”.
