Caterer announced for new Escape Lounge at Manchester Airport

Mosaic Hospitality has been selected as the caterer for the new Escape Lounge in Terminal 1 at Manchester Airport. The new lounge is due to open in the first week of July.

Gordon Beech, Kirsten Inverarity and Richard Boyd, who have worked together for more than 15 years, currently lead the management team. They will be endeavouring to create a real point of difference for airport lounges by serving high quality fresh food to the thousands of passengers who are expected to use the new facility when it opens in July.

Mosaic’s management experience background stretches across hotels, Michelin starred restaurants, private dining and off-site catering for a range of companies across the North West, including the University of Manchester and Arley Hall. They have also provided corporate hospitality for blue chip companies in the City of London.

Gordon Beech, Chairman of Mosaic Hospitality, said: “ We’ve been keen to move into new markets for a long time and the airport was obviously something of real interest to us so when we heard about the new lounge, it was something we wanted to be involved in from the beginning. We believe that our company is uniquely placed to create a product that will provide an important part of the Escape experience and play a critical role in the development of the lounge over the long term. We cannot wait to get started in July.”

A new Escape Lounge for Terminal 1 at Manchester Airport was announced in April 2010 alongside the launch of the ‘The Travel Extras Store’ on Manchester’s website. The airport already has an Escape offering in Terminal 2 and has hopes of launching a third in Terminal 3 in the future. The new lounge in Terminal 1 will be in good company standing alongside the new Emirates Lounge, which was opened in October 2009 and will soon host passengers travelling on the A380.

Andrew Harrison, Commercial Director for Manchester Airport, said: “We want our passengers to start to enjoy their holiday experience as soon as they step into the Escape Lounge. Mosaic Hospitality are excellent caterers held in high regard right across the North West so we are very pleased to have them on board for the launch in a few weeks time.”
