Royal Shakespeare Company

Financial projection, team recruitment

Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford

During the latter stages of moving into its refurbished home in Stratford, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) was considering whether to bring catering in-house.

CBFS created a full feasibility study including a financial projection and comparison between in-house and outsourced catering, and reported this to the executive and RSC board. Following our recommendations, the decision was made to bring the catering in-house, following which we scoped out the F&B spaces and recruited the key team to deliver the vision. The RSC F&B operation has been a great commercial and critical success.
