We are thrilled to welcome Somerset County Cricket Club to the BaxterStorey family.
The five-year partnership will see us running both hospitality and catering for club members alongside visitors of the 8500-seater stadium on match days at Cooper Associates County Ground.
Our expert culinary team will use fresh, seasonal produce from Somerset-based suppliers including Barber’s Cheese, Arthur David and Westaway Sausages, to create nutritious and delicious dishes for the players and spectators.
Mack Allan, our Managing Director said: “We’re excited to bring our innovation and creativity to Somerset County Cricket Club. We will be working with local suppliers and chef consultants to celebrate the best in Southwest produce.
“Our experience working with sporting venues gives us a real understanding about what it takes to cater for a successful club like Somerset. Our chefs understand the important role that food plays in peak athletic performance, and we will bring nutritious, delicious dishes to both players, Members and fans”.
Somerset Members got to experience first-hand what we have to offer when the Club introduced us at a special Membership Open Day last week for over 200 members. The event included a tour around the grounds showcasing both the hospitality and match days offer for 2022, including some tasty samples from the menu including Korean style chicken with spice fries and katsu ketchup; Brixham cod battered goujons, chips and Dyson Farming pea puree; parsnip veloute with smoked yoghurt and mini moss cakes.
SCCC CEO, Gordon Hollins commented: “We are thrilled to announce this new partnership. Catering is all about people and we were very impressed by BaxterStorey’s leadership and their desire to work in true partnership. We believe this will be the beginning of an outstanding working relationship as we aim to consistently provide memorable experiences for our members and stakeholders and grow into the venue of choice in the Southwest, which will allow for substantial investment in cricket.”
SCCC Commercial Director, Caroline Herbert added: “Working in partnership, we will be looking to bring new ideas to life and provide a more diverse matchday offering than ever before.
“However, it’s not just about our matchdays. This partnership will see us provide catering excellence across all our events. Over the coming months, we will be seeking feedback from our Members and stakeholders to establish what our most valued customers want to see on the menu at Cooper Associates County Ground”.
