Restaurant chain tenders for a supplier for UK outlets

Restaurant chains owner Casual Dining Group has invited tenders for water retailers to supply water and wastewater services for its portfolio of some 300 restaurants. Waterscan is advising Casual Dining on its water strategy and is managing the tender process.

A spokesman for Casual Dining said: “We watched the development of the open water market with interest and decided to wait for the market to settle down so that we could make an informed decision on our water supply options.

“Whilst our final procurement strategy hasn’t yet been decided upon, we like the idea of working with a single retailer for all our water needs. Our main goal is to identify and take advantage of cost saving opportunities and streamline internal administration practices.”

Casual Dining’s brands include Bella Italia, La Tasca, Café Rouge and Las Iguanas.
