Fantastic New Facilities at Ark Kings – Chrissy’s Story

The fantastic new Ark Kings Academy opened it’s doors for the very first time on 27th April.

Chrissy Jackson, our Chef Manager in Ark Kings and Rose tells us about the experience:

“When I was recently a guest chef at Glynn Purnell’s Restaurant, my words to him were that the kitchen equipment he possessed I could only dream of working with. Now, only a few months on, I have the proof that a dream can come true, courtesy of the new kitchen at Ark Kings Academy as just before Easter I moved from the functional, but dated, equipment at Ark Rose Primary to an amazing modern, state of the art facility.



I have to say how hard everyone has worked to get the new kitchen up and running and the support we have received from Head Office, City Kitchen and neighbouring Dame Elizabeth School has been fantastic. Last, but not least, I must also place on record my appreciation of the staff at Ark Kings Schools and to thank them all for their efforts and dedication. I am now looking forward to the challenge of integrating Ark Rose Primary School dining service, as the kitchen doors are due to close there in the near future with all catering to be undertaken at Ark Kings Academy, and to making a success of the new kitchen for the benefit of all our customers.”

PS. The girls in the kitchen are named Julie, Lesley, Jane, Sam, Hayley and Julie Butler.
