Procurement & Culinary Services

The Full Range

The Full Range provides purchasing, culinary and management services and support to operators across the foodservice sector. It harnesses its collective buying power to enable clients to purchase the best products at the best prices. Culinary services include everything from kitchen planning and menu design to recipe development and master classes. Its bespoke online management system can also boost business efficiency across the board.

“The Jolly Fine Pub Group had 3 sites, 3 kitchens, 3 Head Chefs and way too many suppliers! The Full Range has helped me streamline our supplier base and – crucially – find the best suppliers in terms of quality, price and service. This required analysing a lot of data, which the guys at The Full Range did with no cost attached. It has reduced the workload of my Head Chefs whilst improving GP across all 3 sites. What more could you want?”

Insurance Broker

Bedford Insurance

With insurance premiums set to rocket, now more than ever, you need to know you have someone fighting to get you the very best deal. Which is where Bedford Insurance comes in. It promises to save you 12.5% on your existing business insurance policy but will not stop there – that is just the minimum. And because it offers both personal and commercial cover, you could save at home as well as at work. What are you waiting for?

“Margins are tight enough already without being further squeezed by insurance hikes. So, if you’re looking to save money, give Steve at Bedford Insurance a call and he’ll do just that. Guaranteed. Last year, he saved us a massive 40% on one of our policies. Insurance brokers you can believe in.”

RECRUITMENT & HR

MY HR Director

Ever wished your business had an HR Manager or Director but found it hard to justify the cost? If you join forces with (My) HR Director, it will be like having your very own HR Director on your team but at a fraction of the cost of directly employing one – all of the upsides, none of the downsides. Its services cover all aspects of HR and can be tailored to the specific needs of your business.

“I’ve only ever heard good things about (My) HR Director from my frontline team at Joe Allen and Orso who deal with Mark on a daily basis: he looks you in the eye and listens. He inspires you to think about HR as a positive part of your day and will empower you to resolve your issues and to learn from what you previously thought were problems. He actually makes HR fun!”

“It’s been great working with Off to Work over the years – nothing’s too much trouble. It’s by far the best staffing agency we’ve ever worked with: the event staff they provide are always extremely professional, courteous and efficient while the permanent staff are just that – once placed, permanent! Their new updated online training is fantastic, allowing us to keep up to date with all our certification needs … and proving great value, too."

Its unique procurement process combined with ultra-tight margin control mean that it has never failed to provide cost savings to clients, whichever sector they are in.

“We’ve been using Powerful Allies at the Bingham for the past four years and over that time, they’ve saved us a huge amount of money. My main contact is James, who I find very pro-active and not pushy at all – I like that he always asks if I have a preference for a particular supplier before proceeding and is transparent in his fees. He has a very personable approach and is just a great person to deal with.”
