This year we've welcomed new Managing Director Matt Ephgrave, who will be focusing on providing businesses with a forward-thinking approach for their employees' food and wellbeing.
Last month, City Pantry welcomed our new Managing Director Matt Ephgrave to the team. With renowned experience in hybrid and marketplace businesses, Matt was previously the COO of Festicket, the world's largest festival travel platform.
In the new role, Matt will be focusing on providing businesses with a forward-thinking approach for their employees' food and wellbeing, making everyone’s working lives better and reflecting the new world we live in. With a huge amount of experience in scaling up across the entire business cycle, he will also focus on driving commercial growth, working closely with City Pantry’s commercial team to ensure they continue to be the leader within the corporate catering market.
Since the beginning of lockdown, City Pantry has focused on Pantry Packages, an at-home service that enables companies to deliver food and gifts directly to their employees across the UK. Our mission is to help companies support their teams wherever they are based, focusing on company culture and employee wellness.
“The last 12 months has drastically altered our view of office culture and it has been a real challenge to maintain this while we work at home," says Matt.
"I’m really excited to be joining a team that has done so much to help companies maintain this during this difficult time - nothing brings people together more than food! The future of the office is still uncertain, but I’m looking forward to working with our clients to support them as they transition back, whether that's through a hybrid office or a fully remote set up.”
