The Caterer: Openings

Discover new business opportunities, sell your products and services to future hospitality venues.

Barbour ABI has teamed up with The Caterer to give you a powerful lead generations tool, specifically designed for the hospitality market. We know it can be difficult to stay in the know about all relevant hospitality opportunities out there – be they chain or independents, sited within destination venues, fine dining or casual. We have created Openings to identify all of these, and more.

What our customers say.

‘I have used Barbour ABI on a number of occasions in different companies within the Catering Equipment Supply industry. I find the system extremely informative and very easy to use. On a number of occasions I have taken the initiative to cold call on the openings and have managed to gain a relationship with the business owner. If not successful on the initial project it has definitely helped me connect and quote upon future projects. I would recommend Barbour ABI to any business looking for a way to gain information on applications and openings, without Barbour ABI we rely on word of mouth or recommendation.’  Erica Anderton – Whalley Catering

‘The Openings product is very impressive. My team are actively using it every day and I would be more than happy to provide that as an official statement or testimonial. We will be renewing for the foreseeable future and frequently recommend this product to our clients.’ Andrew James – Purified Air
