Optima Catering can install and operate your school or college canteen. We have been in the business for over twenty years and fully understand the needs of a busy educational establishment. We know how hard it can be to employ the right staff and to source produce as well as creating the right menus and health choices for your students.

We will visit your establishment, be it a school, college or university, and carry out a full site audit on your catering facilities. We will then present a fully detailed proposition to you. This could be simply taking over and staffing an existing facility to a full kitchen and canteen development.  We will cooperate with your existing workforce, in many cases taking them on with jobs in the new facility, following TUPE.

School Canteens

The canteen we develop can be on a scale to suit you, from full scale dining facilities to light bite snack shops featuring drinks and vending machines. We offer a full design service to suit your catering needs.  See at the food tent example on the right, featuring a simple menu with simple graphics.

School Snacks Bars

Often part pf the requirement will be to provide a quick bite or snack bar so that students can grab something quickly and have a comfortable environment to sit, eat and socialise. Hot and cold food preparation and storage areas with chilled cabinets and hot plates is part of the design. Integrated tea, coffee and cold drinks facilities top off the design.
