What happens during mobilisation?

For many at school, the day can be draining and the surroundings utilitarian.

Our mission is make lunch times a highlight of the day by providing high quality freshly cooked meals in an exciting environment whilst minimising queuing time through service innovations.

We have been mobilising new school contracts since 1999 and as such are very experienced at mitigating risks, ensuring a seamless transition to launch.

Once your school has opted in to have a Dolce service hatch, you can leave the rest to us.
Your Area Manager and our marketing team will discuss the relevant details and organise a refit to liven up your dining space.
Refits are conducted in coordination with your school's caretaker.

How you will receive your menus

There are two ways menus are sent…

Menus are sent via an email from Dolce’s customer care team to the school email address registered with SchoolGrid

They will be sent before the end of every school term, in advance of the next term when the new menu starts. This allows you to download the menu PDF and send it out to your parents electronically and place it onto your website if you wish.


Menus are also sent via an email from Dolce’s customer care team to all parent email addresses registered with SchoolGrid.

We appreciate school staff are extremely busy, so this is our way of helping you communicate new menus to parents. The email contains the new termly menu and any theme day menus only.
