Levy Restaurants UK, the UK’s leading sports, leisure, catering and hospitality company and Northampton Saints Rugby Club have announced an exciting new partnership.

Levy Restaurants UK will provide the catering and hospitality, including a range of outstanding hot and cold food options, within the bars and suites at Franklin’s Gardens, both on match days and for non-match day conferencing, events and dinners.

Franklin’s Gardens joins some of the country’s most prestigious venues, including Twickenham, The Kia Oval, The O2, Principality Stadium, Premier League champions Leicester City FC and numerous other outstanding sporting, conference, heritage and cultural venues within the Levy Restaurants UK portfolio.

Saints chief executive Allan Robson believes that the catering at Franklin’s Gardens will be taken to a new level of excellence because of Levy Restaurants UK being part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, the UK’s largest food and support services firm.

He said: “Levy Restaurants UK has an unparalleled level of expertise and experience in delivering outstanding catering and hospitality at some of the country’s biggest and best venues, and we’re confident that they will have a positive impact here at Franklin’s Gardens, too.

“Our supporters, guests and customers deserve the very best, both on match days and during the week, and Levy Restaurants UK will help us provide the standards of service and quality which we want everyone to experience and enjoy.”

Colin Bailey, Managing Director of Levy Restaurants UK, added: “We’re excited to partner with the Saints at Franklin’s Gardens. It is a well-known and prestigious venue with a wealth of history associated with it.  We will work hard to develop a varied and high quality food offer which we hope the supporters and players will enjoy.”

The new partnership between the Saints and Levy Restaurants UK comes into effect immediately.
