Especial was founded almost 20 years ago, on a simple belief: food service items should not only look beautiful but work effectively. Today, we're the market leader in consulting on, and supplying for, food service presentation projects. We made our name marrying distinguished design with operational excellence and, to this day, provide unbeatable solutions for partners across the globe.
We devise industry-leading food service concepts: from inventive, commercially-minded deli presentations to thoughtful à la carte catering solutions. We thoroughly understand the market, consumer-led food service trends and how to effectively use food service presentation to create operational efficiencies.
Procurement & Supply
We work with thousands of global and local product brands and manufacturers, able to source for scale but also for boutique interventions – from lesser-discovered, independent makers. The common thread is quality: we only work with brands and manufacturers that deliver the very best in product solutions.
Project Management & Mobilisation
We believe our experience in mobilising and managing projects is unrivalled in the food service presentation sector. We’re capable of overseeing all aspects of F&B OS&E and have taken the reins on a myriad of large scale international projects, from restaurant openings and supermarket relaunches, to events catering to thousands of attendees, featuring dozens of food vendors.
We’re the experts in getting products from A to B, with our own established supply chains. Wherever you are in the world, we can not only develop or source a comprehensive food service product package, but ensure it reaches you on time and on budget. We not only have years of experience transporting goods across the UK and Europe, but have reached the most complex of project locations – including getting thousands of product pieces to an uninhabited island off the coast of Saudi Arabia for a one-off event. And, what’s more, we got them back again.
Product Design & Bespoke
While we have the capability to source and supply from our vast network of brand and manufacturing partners, sometimes you need something unique. From a tailor-made solution to overcome an operational challenge to individually branded pieces to align with your organisation, we can design and realise bespoke food service products to suit any need.
