After another busy year at the Cater For You base in High Wycombe, the team had a well deserved night out to celebrate. In the last year, we have added three more people to the team, one in the office dealing with customers and two working in the warehouse.
We decided to support local hotel and function establishment – Taplow House so that the team and their partners could enjoy themselves and stay the night without worrying about getting home in the small hours. As always, it was great to catch up with everyone in a more informal setting, and the obligatory cheeky dance to some cheesy Christmas music rounded off a great night.
We have had an enjoyable 2018; business peaked with England making their way through to the World Cup semi finals where there was a higher than usual demand for disposable plastic pint glasses. We have also introduced many new products this year, including significantly expanding our range of foil food packaging. 2018 was also a tumultuous year for the whole industry and the sustainability of the products and use thereof, though we believe we were well ahead of most other suppliers with our biodegradable section, which we introduced over 10 years ago.
We are looking forward to 2019 (except the possible Brexit impact) with plans for many new products and a new web site. It will include a new customer login feature, so you can view past orders for example. We’re hoping to provide the facility for customers to download previous invoices too. Unfortunately we are losing James from the customer service team, and will be recruiting his replacement early next year. He has been a great addition to the team this year, and we wish him well with his future at his parent’s business.
For information on our Christmas and New Year opening hours, please see our previous blog post. We would like to thank all our customers for their support in 2018 and we hope that we can continue to grow together in 2019.
