The Range, St. Helens

Instore provide restaurant and cafe food services to many of the UK’s most respected and loved retail brands and this new three year £60 million deal will see a 430 strong foodservice team deliver fantastic food and beverage service across 68 coffee shops located nationally throughout The Range stores.

Instore’s initial contract with The Range started in 2005 and saw Instore manage the coffee shops across 25 stores. This number has grown rapidly over the last nine years; over two million customers now visit the 68 The Range coffee shops every year and with even more stores and coffee shops in the pipeline, this number is set to grow further.

In line with The Range’s expansion plans, Compass will be investing in the coffee shop facilities, modernising a number of coffee shops, in particularly those that were opened at the time of the original contract. This modernisation will also see Compass and The Range roll-out a fresh new look and feel with a new branded coffee shop; Dee, Dee’s. Alongside the existing food and beverages offered at The Range, a new pizza format will also be introduced in selected stores allowing customers to enjoy, fresh stone-baked pizzas during a busy day’s shopping!

Commenting on the new deal, Andy Rees, Managing Director for Instore said: “We’re over the moon to have won this new contract and really excited about nurturing our relationship with The Range. The key element for us in retaining this contract is the trust our client has in our ability to deliver so it’s great to be able to continue working with them, helping to drive The Range brand and our service offering forward.”

Paul Shewbrook, Chief Operating Officer said: “We’re delighted to have recently renewed our contract with Instore for a further three years. Having built a great reputation for foodservice and customer satisfaction, the Instore team knows and understands our business and as a catering partner they continue to evolve and produce great results for us.”
