Water Retailers invited to serve Casual Dining Group

Casual Dining Group is seeking a water retail partner to supply water and wastewater services across its existing portfolio and provide support with its water program through a competitive tender process which goes live in August.

Casual Dining Group is one of the UK’s largest and fastest growing independent restaurant companies, operating nearly 300 restaurants, employing more than 10,000 people and serving more than 20 million meals each year right across the UK. Its brands include Bella Italia, La Tasca, Café Rouge and Las Iguanas.

Paul Boyce of Prestige Purchasing which works on behalf of Casual Dining Group, said: “We watched the development of the open water market with interest and decided to wait for the market to settle down so that we could make an informed decision on our water supply options. Whilst our final procurement strategy hasn’t yet been decided upon, we like the idea of working with a single retailer for all our water needs. Our main goal is to identify and take advantage of cost saving opportunities and streamline internal administration practices.”

Waterscan is assisting Casual Dining Group with its water strategy and is managing the tender process on its behalf. Rebecca Gale of the independent consultancy said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Casual Dining Group to assist with its water procurement. Already a highly successful and sizeable enterprise, we are working to optimise water cost and consumption savings whilst supporting the company’s ambitious expansion plans through identifying further opportunities to build best practice water management into its operations. We now seek a water retailer to work with us on this exciting contract for one of the UK’s fastest growing operations.”
