Rub a Dub, Hub

25 February 2014 | Updated 02 December 2020
FremantleMedia’s refurbished HQ just off London’s Tottenham Court Road houses 800 people on site. The company has awarded Bennett Hay the hospitality contract for three years to kick-off with.

(Fremantle is one of the largest creators, producers and distributors of television brands in the world.) Bennett Hay will be operating the atrium café, providing corporate and event hospitality - and running a Friday workplace bar.

The café/bar has created a ‘creativity hub’ that has helped turn the building’s new atrium into a ‘fun’ space for meetings and networking.

Ops Services Manager, Loes Penz, said: “We’re a creative company. We want the best possible working environment for staff and to work with contractors that understand those values.”
