ExCeL London and Levy UK + I partner with KERB
ExCeL London and Levy UK + I, the sports, and hospitality sector of Compass Group UK and Ireland has announced a new partnership with KERB.
KERB will provide food and drink offerings to ExCeL’s central boulevard. The food line-up includes Baba Dhaba (Pakistani street eats), Fundi (wood-fired pizza), Nazari (Moorish Mediterranean cuisine) and Oh My Dog! (prime hot dogs and burgers).
KERB and Levy UK + I, along with ExCeL, have been working together to match the traders to all of the different communities known to visit. For organisers catering for their guests, a broader choice of hospitality packages will be available and these packages will draw on the retail offer.
Simon Mitchell, CEO at KERB, said: “Our new partnership at ExCeL London perfectly demonstrates how our community of independent food and drinks businesses can reinvent a space and help build a memorable experience for guests. KERB’s skilled team delivers a full service to match any of London’s leading caterers. Our traders serve with an infectious passion for food, alongside the professionalism and modern offering our guests are looking for.”
Jon Davies, managing director of Levy UK, added: “Levy’s partnership with KERB has brought a completely fresh feel to the boulevard at ExCeL London. We have been able to work together to ensure that food is fun at the venue while taking away the corporate edge in a sophisticated way. The partnership is a great example of all three parties committed to delivering an exceptional experience for guests, that follows sustainable and professional best practice.”
Simon Mills, executive director at ExCeL London, commented: “We are absolutely committed to providing our customers and guests with a first-class experience. Our partnership with London’s most recognised street food brand, KERB alongside our catering and hospitality venue partner Levy UK+1 will cement a step-change in enhancing the experience of everyone visiting ExCeL.
"We are particularly excited to be able to transition the offer from permanent retail units on the Boulevard, to vibrant in-event pop-ups, as well as hospitality offers tailored to the demographic of the event. A dynamic and contemporary food offer delivered by specialist food entrepreneurs, all of whom are passionate about customer service and the ingredients and recipes they use, is the best way to celebrate the return to face to face events.”
