Trowbridge employer apetito has opened a new staff restaurant at its HQ on Canal Road.

Named SOCIAL as chosen by employees, the restaurant features a new outdoor seating deck, additional dining space and an informal meeting room with a large screen TV.

SOCIAL was officially opened on Monday 27th March by apetito’s CEO Paul Freeston and apetito’s longest serving manufacturing staff member Liz Crook.

Paul said, “This is a big investment by the company in creating much better facilities for our team. We hope everyone will find the new restaurant worth the wait and a fantastic place to spend time in.

“Everybody at apetito works so hard for the company and we wanted to give them something absolutely great when it came to down-time.”

Liz who cut the opening ribbon explained how much this will mean for the staff at Trowbridge.

She said, “When I started at apetito, quite a few moons ago now, all we had was a small canteen and a lady with a tea trolley. This is worlds apart from that, and I know everybody will really make use of and appreciate this amazing new staff restaurant”.

The SOCIAL team is headed by apetito’s in house chef Andy Witcombe who has been with the company for just under four years. There are approximately 700 employees working from the Trowbridge site.

Food counters include fresh ‘food to go’ that has been made on site, a wide choice of delicious hot apetito meals and desserts as well as salads and healthy eating options.
