Jobs set to be created at food business

Have your say

JOBS are expected to be create at a South Yorkshire catering and café business after it was acquired by a former banker.

Time Food Services, based in Sheffield, is planning a gradual expansion after being acquired by former Lloyds TSB corporate banker, Mike Rogers, who was advised by York-based accountants and business advisers JWP Creers.

Mr Rogers will run Time Food Services, which has cafes in Sheffield and North Derbyshire, with his wife and co-director Gillian

and daughter Abigail who has worked in the hospitality industry since leaving Sheffield University four years ago.

Time Food Services was founded in 2009 as O’Briens and changed its name in 2011. The business, which was sold by its owner, Staffordshire businessman Wayne Fenton, has more than 20 staff and an £800,000 turnover.

Mr Rogers said: “Havingworked in banking since I was 15, I decided I wanted to look for new challenges doing something totally different.”

Peter Kay, a partner at York law firm, Ware & Kaye, provided legal advice to Mr Rogers.
