  • ESS Spinifex, Yandi

WA Industrial/ Institutional Caterer – Winner

  • Chartwells St Thomas More College, Crawley

These wins come hot on the heels of Compass ESS receiving the prestigious Workforce Innovation Award from the Australian Mines and Metals Association (AMMA) for Village Life, a new accommodation/ lifestyle concept that enhances the quality of life of FIFO workers.

The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across the state. The Awards are judged by an independent team of trained judges who anonymously visit the venues to determine the winners. The scores are based on the entire dining experience from food to the customer service experienced when the judges anonymously dine.

Restaurant & Catering Association CEO John Hart says Compass Group’s brands should be proud of their achievements.

“Running a hospitality business isn’t easy – there’s a lot of blood sweat and tears that goes into to making it work. But when you get the right mix of staff, produce and service, the results can be extraordinary,” he said.

Both winners may compete with other region finalists at the National Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence to be held at Four Points Sheraton, Darling Harbour in Sydney on Monday 24th October 2016. Finalists will be advised of their status by 26 September.
