How we succeed


Fundamental to the success of any project is to gain a clear understanding of the nature and extent of our client’s requirements. We do this by listening to what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it. This stage often provides a firm foundation for the outcome.


We take what you want to achieve and check it back to you. We then use our experience to develop and enhance your ideas into what we believe to be the most advantageous outcome. 


We do not have the only license for good ideas, so we talk to each other within CCB. This brings over 100 years of front-line expert experience to your project, and some of the most comprehensive benchmarking information, that allows us to structure our strategy and activities for the future. 


We have over 100 years’ experience of making things happen. Our people are the Captains of industry and have been at the fore front of innovation, proficient at turning concepts into live realisation. We really do back ourselves to deliver. 


We believe that this is the start of our relationship, we measure, monitor and inform you of the success of our activities, after measuring every detail. The option is for your success to grow year on year, confident in the knowledge that your “Captains” are sailing the ship. 


“If you can’t measure it, then you can’t improve it." This is where we ensure that all the promises made during any review, are delivered. There is measure in all things, and your catering operation is no different. We will walk the journey with you ensuring all aspects over the years are meeting and exceeding expectation.
