Inspire Catering is delighted to be celebrating 10 years in the catering industry – with 2nd June representing 10 years to the day we served our first lunch in our first ever contract – Falck Safety Services in Aberdeen.
The Inspire Story
Inspire Catering is a niche Scottish caterer wholly independently owned by David Pease and Lorna McFarlane which has been trading since 2 June 2008. The company started following a desire to offer something different, with an aspiration to create bespoke solutions for clients at a fair price with ‘a nothing is too much hassle’ approach.
Provenance has been one of Inspire’s guiding principles since day one, enjoying the rich pickings from our Scottish larder as much as possible through seasonal produce and sourcing our goods from local suppliers here in Scotland.
Inspire are very proud to have grown a sustainable contract base with some fantastic client partners, the majority of which are still with Inspire into their 2nd contract term! The business is focused on 2 distinct markets – business and industry and the education sector (colleges/independent schools) where today – in volume terms, Inspire caters for more pupils each school day than any other caterer here in Scotland. There are now 33 catering locations.
David and Lorna initially met whilst working together in the late 90s for a large contract caterer. They met again in 2007 and felt their combined expertise and blend of skills complemented each other well at a time when the market was ready for a refreshing change in what caterers had to offer. This is still the case today!
Between them, their passion and enthusiasm for what Inspire stands for is unswerving, ensuring that the whole business approach focuses on what is most important – the quality of the food on the plate and keeping customers happy. It really is that simple!
Alongside fabulous food, our people are the key ingredient to our success. Throughout our journey, we are fortunate to have nurtured an excellent team around us who wholeheartedly share a passion for our business. They are an exceptional bunch that are wholly focused on delighting our customers each and every day.
What this milestone means… (from Owners David Pease and Lorna McFarlane)
“We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating Inspire’s 10th Birthday this weekend! It really is a wonderful feeling and we are both exceptionally proud of our journey along the way to what the business has become today!
Of course, it is only made possible by our wonderful clients and customers who continue to be ‘inspired’ and the amazing team we have round about us – each and every one of them is part of our Inspire family and we share this celebration with them!”
