Food diversity in Leisure attractions

To capture the spending power of the scope and diversity of guests at leisure attractions it is key to fully identify, understand and classify the market sectors, to deliver a diverse range of food and beverage offering , to fulfil that potential through strength and depth of team, in synergy with effective use of square footage of store availability.

Discussion on how that has been achieved at Longleat Safari Park over the past 5 years, and how we deliver success going forwards.
