Family firm is expanding

Kelso-based family company Gill Orde in Catering are targeting further expansion following a threefold increase in sales over the past four years and its recent shortlisting for the prestigious Catering in Scotland Excellence Awards.

The company, which has been operating for almost 20 years, has seen an increase in demand for its services in recent years, which include bespoke wedding, corporate and private event catering. The business also operates visitor centre cafe restaurants and an event catering service at a number of historic houses in the area.

To keep up with the increased demand the company is looking to recruit a senior sales and event manager and an operations assistant. They will join a team of 18 full and part-time staff, which is also bolstered by around 30 casual staff.

Gill Orde in Catering, run by brothers Justin and Christian Orde and their parents Gill and Michael, is a finalist in the Independent Event Caterer category of this year’s CIS Excellence Awards.
