"We engaged with Regency during the first lockdown after COVID-19 hit. We wanted to review our cost base whilst we had the time to properly do so.

We sought recommendations from other operators and Regency came very highly recommended. We weren’t disappointed.

Working with Regency is like having a dedicated procurement director on your team and the double digit % savings they achieved will have a significant impact on our bottom line, helping to mitigate some of the COVID-19 costs.

Our Procurement Manager is incredibly responsive and helpful and checks in regularly, keeping a constant eye out looking for cost savings on our behalf.

In addition to the core cost savings, we’ve introduced the Donna Italia pizza range, increasing our food offering without significant increases in prep time and staffing. We have also achieved great savings on our waste collections and energy contracts.

We use the Regency IQ system to see a holistic view of our F&B spend. This system delivers key insights and highlights pricing deviations that allow us to keep a close control of our spend, whilst freeing up more time to spend on the business.

Engaging Regency to be part of our ‘team’ was definitely one of the best decisions we made during lockdown! It is like having the clout and resources of a large business procurement department without the overheads.’

Tom Filer, Owner and Director (also Treasurer of Association of Indoor Play)
