From getting started to dishing out delicious meals – we answer every question you might have here…
WILL WE KEEP OUR CURRENT KITCHEN TEAM?
Yes, you will! Under TUPE regulations, your current kitchen staff will transfer across when Dolce becomes your school’s new catering provider.
HOW LONG SHOULD MY CATERING CONTRACT BE?
We recommend a one-year contract with a terms cancellation thereafter.
HOW MUCH NOTICE DO I NEED TO GIVE A NEW PROVIDER?
Generally, six weeks is considered best practice for TUPE, so we’d advise eight weeks to ensure a smooth transition.
ARE WE RESPONSIBLE FOR TUPE?
No – unless you operate your own in-house service. Under employment law, it will be the responsibility of the incumbent employer and the new employer.
