Employees at KMF's main sheet metal fabrication site in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire can now dine in style — after KMF makes a major investment in a new staff canteen.
The 190,000 Sqft metal manufacturing facility at High Carr Business Park, which employs around 400 staff across 24/7 shift patterns — teamed up with catering services provider Totally Delicious for its latest project.
Now, staff can benefit from a new, extended menu — which boasts daily specials including Mexican, Italian and American-themed dishes. There is also a range of healthy high-protein, low-fat meals available every day at extremely reasonable prices.
It is hoped that the new facility will encourage staff to take 'proper' breaks away from their desks, to allow them to feel more refreshed and enjoy healthier and more satisfying meals. KMF plan to utilise the canteen as a place where employees, customers, suppliers and visitors alike, can meet to take a quick comfort break when on site.
This new canteen is part of a £650K welfare renovation project which has also included enhanced WC facilities, brand-new shower access and additional meeting rooms and office space.
Dominic Bowers, Director of Totally Delicious Limited, said: "We are delighted to be working with KMF on this positive project. From the moment we met with Gareth Terry and Jon (Directors of KMF) it's been a real boost to see a company that genuinely wants the best for their staff. The support we have had to do this has been fantastic.
We now look forward to looking after the KMF team for many years to come. Thanks for letting us be part of your journey."
Totally Delicious provides workplace cafes and catering services to a range of companies in Stoke-on-Trent and also hosts its own tearooms and restaurants in locations such as Trentham Estate and Middleport Pottery.
The build has supported local contractors and suppliers wherever possible.
