The owners of Ellerker Lodge Garden Centre in Hull came to Vision with plans for opening a catering establishment.

Although they knew briefly what they wanted to achieve, Vision helped them develop a more specific idea and come up with a final brief. They decided upon an initial basic offering to start with menu items to include traditional breakfast, soup, sandwiches and paninis.
The project design included a full kitchen with brand new equipment and fabrication, a back counter and a servery counter. The drawings adhered to the brief that Vision put forward - an efficient working arrangement that fit their basic menu yet recognised potential for the extra space so that in the future, the client could easily increase the number of covers.
The owners wanted to open on the 1st December as this was the 2 year anniversary of them taking over the garden centre so Vision made sure of this and tried to minimise disruption as much as possible through the installation phase.
'After considering other designs we felt that Vision's was the highest quality and their experience within garden centre catering shone through. They really understood our desires for The Olive Tree and we were extremely pleased with their service right through from meeting them at Glee to completion of the project.
The Olive Tree is going very well and we are already looking to expand further by converting part of our external area. We are also looking at opening a brand new restaurant in a different location where we will certainly be considering Vision for any works at this site.'
