Posted on 11-Jul-2018
CLEAN’s expert table linen service Special Occasion Linen is again supporting Levy UK, official caterers of The Championships, Wimbledon 2018 by supplying sparkling table linens to its on-site restaurants.
Everyone is aware The Championships, Wimbledon is a major highlight in Britain's sporting and social calendar, but behind the scenes it also hosts Europe’s
largest sporting catering operation each year.

Delivery drivers visit the site every evening to drop off clean linens and remove dirty ones, working within a tight time-frame to minimise disruption. This week alone, CLEAN drivers will deliver 2,000kg of linen to Wimbledon each day.
To ensure the smooth delivery of linens to 80 different areas across the site, including its reservation-only Wingfield Restaurant and debenture and hospitality restaurants, CLEAN's very own Customer Service Operations and Events Manager Liz Guilding remains on-site where she also checks that returns are recorded correctly and are ready to be collected by drivers every evening.
