Street Eats’ ap­petite for suc­cess

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of new jobs could be cre­ated in Hilling­don un­der plans for a ‘state of the art’ sand­wich fac­tory.

Ch­ester-based com­pany Street Eats is in­vest­ing £4 mil­lion to build a fa­cil­ity at Stock­ley Close busi­ness es­tate, in West Dray­ton, which will al­low it to ex­pand its op­er­a­tions in the south-east.

Paul Bates, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the na­tional firm, said he en­vis­ages pro­vid­ing ‘around 300 new jobs at the new fac­tory across a wide range of dis­ci­plines’.

Work to fit out the 40,000sq ft fac­tory will be­gin later this month and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by late spring.

Mr Bates said: “Our fac­tory in Ch­ester is op­er­at­ing at al­most full ca­pac­ity and as we con­tinue to win new busi­ness we have been look­ing for a new site for some time.

“Stock­ley Close is ideally lo­cated, just off the M4 and M25 and within min­utes of Heathrow, and this fan­tas­tic new fa­cil­ity gives us a very strong plat­form for growth over the years ahead.

“We will be keen to hear from any­one al­ready work­ing in the food in­dus­try or just look­ing for a new ca­reer.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity to be part of a brand new team op­er­at­ing in a mod­ern fa­cil­ity with ex­cel­lent pub­lic trans­port links within a busi­ness that is re­ally go­ing places so we are an­tic­i­pat­ing de­mand for jobs will be high.”
