GROWTH ON THE MENU: CH&CO AND VACHERIN JOIN FORCES

Vacherin, a specialist boutique caterer, has joined the CH&CO family of catering businesses. 

Vacherin has a turnover of £30m and 45 operations across London providing hospitality catering and reception services to a range of clients. The addition of Vacherin to the CH&CO Group adds over 600 employees to the wider team.

Vacherin was founded in 2002 by Mark Philpott and Clive Hetherington. They were joined in 2006 by Phil Roker, who became Managing Director of the business in 2016. All three owners will continue to be involved in the business and retain a financial interest. Phil Roker will continue as Managing Director and clients will still be working with the same team.

Mark Philpott, Chairman of Vacherin, commented: “We’ve been impressed by the way other organisations have transitioned into the CH&CO family, which now has an established model of successfully bringing together businesses with similar cultures and strategies. This deal sets Vacherin up perfectly for further growth and as part of a larger organisation, our team will also have access to more and wider opportunities for development and career progression.”

Phil Roker, Managing Director of Vacherin, said: “The past few years have seen Vacherin consistently grow and we were at the stage where we needed to either seek significant investment to take the company to the next level, or join forces with another successful company and grow with them. I’m delighted we’ve chosen to grow with CH&CO. Vacherin will continue providing catering and front of house experiences with a difference by delivering exceptional food, drink and wellbeing initiatives that make our clients' businesses stand out from the crowd.”
