TWO LOCAL BUSINESS ENTITIES have sealed a deal which represents an investment in local manufacturing and a new dining experience for consumers.
Chefette Restaurants Ltd and Banks Holdings Ltd (BHL) have entered into an agreement to give Chefette customers new beverage solutions. As of Tuesday June 19th, 2012, Chefette customers will have the option of ordering Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Light, Sprite, Frutee Extreme Red and Frutee Pineapple from Chefette outlets island-wide.
BHL is the local producer of Coca-Cola beverages through carbonated beverage manufacturer the Barbados Bottling Company Ltd (BBC).
Managing Director of Chefette Restaurants Ltd, Ryan Haloute, is delighted with the new arrangement. “Banks Holdings Ltd offered a very good long term contract and price to supply us with Coca-Cola beverages and in addition, both companies have similar founding philosophies; being good corporate citizens by always giving back to the various communities. This partnership further solidifies our commitment to supporting local manufacturing and creating more job security especially in these challenging economic times.”
CEO of the BHL Group Richard Cozier said: “It is an honour for us to be providing our products to an indigenous chain of restaurants known for quality meals, standards and service. We are very proud of this alliance.”
Voted recently by New York based magazine Travel & Leisure as one of the World's top fast food chains, Chefette is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
Chefette operates 14 Restaurants, 9 Drive-Thrus and 2 Barbecue Barns.
