WE DIDN'T BECOME THE BRAND WE ARE OVERNIGHT

We didn’t start life as Gather & Gather, and we didn’t become the brand we are today overnight. We are still the challenger brand and we plan to keep doing what we do best to challenge the status quo, using innovation, great food and great people as the key to our success.

FOUNDED IN 1998

Mitie’s catering business was founded in 1998 to self-deliver catering as part of the integrated facilities management model.  By 2010 the Mitie board realised that food offered an opportunity to differentiate within a competitive market.

With a new team at the helm, over the next 24 months the business nearly trebled in size, becoming the fastest-growing caterer in the UK and Ireland.

GATHER & GATHER

In 2012, Mitie acquired premium events business Creativevents. This expanded the core range of services from cafés, restaurants, fine dining and hospitality to include retail cafés and bars, ‘pop-up’ food and bar concepts and event catering.

In 2013 the business rebranded to Gather & Gather to increase the appeal of its workplace food outlets.  The brand positioning centers around the idea of ‘urban hunter gatherers’ exploring the modern world of food, collecting the latest exciting ideas and approaches for customers to share and enjoy.
