Blackmhor Appoints Operations Manager Ahead of Expansion Drive

Glasgow-based Blackmhor, a hybrid between a retail operator and a contract catering service provider, has appointed an operations manager to complete its management team ahead of a rapid expansion drive throughout 2010.

Offering a refreshingly different café bar resource, Blackmhor’s Silverbean service is a new way to upgrade workplaces. Silverbean is a café bar brand that operates exclusively within workplaces supported by Flexipod.

Meeting the needs of the modern workplace, Flexipod provides an innovative, flexible solution for serving fresh food and coffee throughout the day. The Flexipod is a modular, stand-alone café bar which requires no plumbing and can be located within any office foyer or atrium.

The company has now appointed Sarah Macdonald with overall responsibility for managing its operations throughout a period of significant growth.

Caroline Black, founder of Blackmhor, said, “Operational capability is crucial to the success of the company and Sarah’s appointment means that we are now fully equipped to deliver an enhanced range of services to our expanding client base.

“In addition to assisting the development of our services, Sarah’s role will encompass the training and development of our customer-facing staff to help us manage our growth whilst simultaneously enhancing the level of service we give to our customers.”

Sarah Macdonald, operations manager at Blackmhor, said, “I’m delighted to join this young and dynamic management team at such an exciting time for the company. Blackmhor’s Silverbean service has huge growth potential and I’m looking forward to playing a key part in the operational management of that expansion.”

Blackmhor expects to triple the number of Flexipods in operation within the first quarter of 2010 and has targeted to achieve a turnover in excess of £1 million by the year end.
