"Elite pubs have been working with Challenger for just over two years now. During this period they have
helped us achieve and maintain a high standard in food safety, which has resulted in excellent food hygiene ratings, has helped build good relations with EHO inspectors, and has minimised food related complaints. Carl is always available to help the business, works well with the team, and has made a big difference. It has been a pleasure working with him and long may it continue.."
