Street Eats’ appetite for success
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.”
