Exploring the opportunities in food service

First Choice Foodservice is driven by a fantastic team of highly-motivated people who generously give their time each day to serve the company’s many customers.

Established in 1980, First Choice is a family-run business which has grown tremendously over the years. Originally serving the retail sector as a wholesale distributor—today we are regarded as one of the region’s leading independent food service providers for professional caterers.

With an extensive range of ambient, chilled and frozen products, we make regular deliveries six days-a-week throughout the Midlands. Our own fleet of multi-temp vehicles serve more than 1,000 caterers over an area of some 18,000 square miles.

Professional caterers from all sectors rely on us for support, advice and regular deliveries. These include: multi-site pub groups and fine-dining restaurants; residential and nursing care facilities; leisure and country clubs; hotels and hospitality venues; garden centres; educational establishments; independent cafés and tearooms as well as individual professional caterers.

Our continued success is largely due to the level of service and reliability we offer our customers. The exceptionally hard work of our dedicated teams—alongside a programme of continuous investment in people and systems—means our customers can be confident that we will deliver on our promises.

Providing customers with the best service experience is at the heart of everything we do.

We take pride in offering all customers, large and small, a superior standard of service which others find difficult to match. We work hard every day to improve upon the goals we set for ourselves. Challenging each other and our processes and never standing still.

First Choice have built a successful team by encouraging a culture of open-mindedness, fairness and inclusion—for people of all backgrounds. As an equal opportunities employer we welcome all applicants irrespective of gender, race, religion, political beliefs or sexual orientation. We will not tolerate any form of discrimination from any member of our team.

You may be a seasoned professional, or just dipping your toe into what feels like a new world of possibilities. Either way you will have likely found your way here with a fresh perspective on what taking care of customers really means to you. If that sounds like the kind of company you like to keep, please get in touch.

We hope you discover that a career with First Choice will reward you personally as well as satisfying your longer-term professional and career ambitions.
