Hello. This is my first go at this. Does anybody out there in our lovely town know anything about the Compass Group ? Especially the catering side of their business. I would be interested to know. Thank you

If you're going to advertise, at least be open about it. Tackiness will now be associated with Compass Group - well done!

Compass is an International Catering firm providing Catering in all kinds of environments from School canteens to Bespoke dining. One arm of its operation is Select Service Partner and that operates chains like Upper Crust and Ritazza Coffee at stations. The Company got itself into some trouble in America with some sort of fraud allegations where I believe they were obtaining contracts through backhanders but I'm not certain of the details. They pay the majority of their staff Minimum wage and the standards of food vary greatly between outlets. I rue the day that Lewes Station loses it's wonderful and wacky Independent Cafe, Never allow Compass Group or Select service Partner get their hands on it, also I do believe that the catering at Glyndebourne is on the whole provided by Compass or it's subsidaries.

Is Compass associated with MacDonalds as they seem to have a lot in common?
