Serving up an ace to David Lloyd
As Europe’s premier gym and sports complex outfit, David Lloyd Leisure offers so much more than your average health club. Their heritage in tennis is world renowned and they are the UK’s largest tennis operation with c.800 courts across the country. A key part of their unique offering is that all the family can spend time at any David Lloyd and a key part of that are their DLicious cafebars. With a menu that could be lifted from a gastro pub they are clearly dedicating a great deal of time and money into this aspect of their business. So when they wanted new uniforms for all of their catering staff, they needed the best value with unparalleled service. We have worked with David Lloyd for decades and throughout numerous ownership changes, so we must be doing something right. They decided that for their revamp, our uniform rental and laundry service was their best option.
There are several advantages to our uniform rental and laundry service, for businesses large and small. For instance, the initial expenditure is substantially less than direct purchase as we effectively buy the stock on your behalf and then rent it out to you. We agreed upon a 2 year contract with David Lloyd for all of their chef jackets, chef trousers, aprons and cloths and linens for their DLicious cafes across their 84 sites nationwide. They also requested their cloths and aprons to be personalised, through embroidery, with that department’s brand identity. As part of their contract we launder their products on a weekly basis, with secure storage in our uniform laundry lockers and hamper packs. Having clients as prestigious as David Lloyd is a tremendous privilege and responsibility. After all, if you set yourself to the highest standards, you are held to them. We at Tibard are no different and that’s why our partnership has been so strong.
"Tibard have been a supplier to the David Lloyd clubs for a number of years. They have always provided good product solutions combined with a reliable and efficient service. They are quick to try to solve any issues and are a great chefwear partner"
