Food to go, go, go, go as Gloucester Services upgrades


Westmorland-owned Gloucester Services is beefing up its food-to-go offer on both the North-bound and South-bound sides of the M5.

The service area features farm shops on both sides selling locally produced food, fresh meat and fish (on the southbound site only) as well as kitchens serving home-made dishes with local ingredients.

Now the company is investing “hundreds of thousands” of pounds in increasing its Quick Kitchen capacity on either side of the motorway to improve customers’ experience. “At peak times the place gets very busy so we need to disperse customers across the site,” said operations director Paul Tidswell.

It has increased oven capacity, upped the number of coffee machines, increased holding facilities for fresh food and opened outside serving counters.

“The idea is we are opening a smaller version of what we do inside to help customers get served quickly with hot and cold drinks and food made on site,” said Tidswell.
