What our Nurseries Say…
We have been using Zebedees since 2005. We always find Zebedees extremely accommodating in meeting various dietary needs. The children really enjoy the meals they provide and we are extremely impressed with the nutritious and varied menu they offer.
The Zebedees team offers a personal touch which seems to be increasingly rare; they work hard to establish and maintain a relationship with the client. They offer practical advice, marketing sessions for parents; as well as providing hands on help at peak times such as serving Christmas lunch!
The meals are varied, tasty and nutritionally balanced but most importantly the children like them! Innovative ideas such as the Around the World menus and themed days encourage children to try new foods and to celebrate and appreciate cultural differences.
In addition to the hot meals Zebedees supplies us with packed lunches for outings, After School Club teas, meals for staff INSET days and, when required, a buffet lunch for the inspection team!
Choosing Zebedees is one of the best strategic decisions we have made: working with a small team means that everyone involved, from delivery drivers to directors, is committed to ensuring the customer enjoys an excellent service. Nothing is too much trouble and nothing gets in the way of a delivery, not even snow and ice, which for a rural school such as ours has been an important consideration.
I am happy and confident to recommend Zebedees. They provide a personal yet professional, friendly and reliable service. Quite simply Zebedees is very good at what it does.
The decision (to use Zebedees) was taken after a full and thorough investigation of all the local catering providers and numerous trial sessions. Zebedees was by far the best suited to our catering needs with the highest quality of food and nutritional awareness.
We find the staff delivering the meals very friendly. Parents seem pleased with the meals provided and can often be heard saying 'the food must be good, you won't eat that at home!'
I am happy and confident to recommend Zebedees to any school. It provides a personal yet professional, friendly and reliable service. Quite simply Zebedees is very good at what it does.
Having Zebedees has made an enormous difference to our children and the operation of our nursery. The children (and staff!) really enjoy the meals; lots of vegetables and fruits and with a good variety of meals to tempt most taste buds! Also very little waste. Knowing that the meals will be delivered daily and on time, being able to add additional meals and to meet all dietary requirements has made a big difference to us.
