John Smith’s Stadium teams up with new catering partner ahead of Huddersfield Town's first Premier League season

Ahead of Huddersfield Town’s first season in the Premier League, the John Smith’s Stadium has announced a new catering partnership with hospitality company, KUDOS.

The new partnership is a joint venture between KUDOS, Huddersfield Town Football Club, Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Football Club and the Stadium operators, KSDL.

This announcement follows on from the existing partnership with the Stadium’s current catering company, Sodexo, coming to a conclusion this summer.

With 35 years of hospitality experience, KUDOS will provide a new catering offering at The John Smith’s Stadium, which hosts football and rugby league at national and international level.

The stadium also hosts entertainment, business conferencing and networking events and will soon be added to with the new HD One Leisure project.

Gareth Davies, managing director of KSDL, said: “Flexibility and a willingness to move away from standard practices within the stadium catering sector was the key to us working with KUDOS on our future plans.

“This relationship isn’t an outside caterer, this relationship will be a true partnership where all the stakeholders of this fantastic stadium have a say in the future of the service we offer to our customers.

“KUDOS are a business focused on delivering excellence and with an eye for detail. They even have a two Michelin star restaurant within the group.

“KUDOS are committed to minimising their environmental impact, and are proud supporters of using local and British produce to provide a sustainable catering service, which was something that also appealed to the Stadium partners.”

Charles Beer, KUDOS senior partner, added: “We are genuinely excited to be starting this partnership with Huddersfield Town, the Giants and KSDL at a Stadium that offers so much across the year to the region.

“Yorkshire has an abundance of fantastic suppliers which we have already started working with in preparation of a Yorkshire grown catering service.”
