MILTON SANDFORD WINES. B2B SEARCYS SINCE 1847, SEARCYS HAS BEEN ONE OF THE UK’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS CATERING COMPANIES. With a passion for quality and an ability to execute an event to the very highest standards, they have developed a world-famous reputation for catering and hospitality at their exclusive restaurants and venues for hire in London, the City and Bath. In May 2014, we were invited to tender for the Searcy’s wine contract, along with 15 other UK Wine Merchants. The process was managed by Prestige Purchasing, who oversaw all the commercial and operational aspects of the tender. Then followed a series of Sommelier blind tastings. Ultimately, securing the business came down to which wine partner, out of the 3 remaining, could service Searcy’s to the highest standard and ultimately add most value to the business. After being awarded the wine contract in October, our plan went into action. o Administrative and accounting procedures put in place to service the account efficiently o Cellar stock assessment and orders placed to meet increased demand for new listings o Forecast plan developed in-house o Wine lists further designed and developed for each individual site, built around the original core selection o Logistics schedule drawn up. We service all 20 of Searcy’s Venues with weekly scheduled deliveries in our own vans, some with 3 scheduled deliveries a week, where volume requires. o Uplift and relocation of “ old Stock” from previous wine merchant o The design and delivery of our wine optimization programme, which is progressing well throughout the sites and will be on-going throughout the length of the contract o

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
