We are very proud to share with you that Hickory have been commended for Event Caterer of the Year at The Drum UK Event Awards. The lavish ceremony was held in London yesterday evening (1st Dec), bringing our awards tally for 2016 to an impressive two wins, two commendations and six nominations.
The commendation follows Hickory’s recent success at the Scottish VOWS Awards, where we were awarded the gong in the Specialist Wedding Services category. The win at the Scottish ‘Wedding Oscars’ was our first standalone catering award and comes on the back of a year of award successes for Hickory, including nominations at two other national event awards, The Drum’s Content Marketing Awards and The Caterer’s Foodservice Catey Awards. Not only that, we found out this week that we are also finalists at the 2017 Confetti Wedding Awards for Independent Caterer of the Year which will be announced on the 29th January 2017!
2016 has been a fantastic year for Hickory with us gaining a strong reputation as one of the most successful and in-demand caterers in Scotland. Our exclusively managed venues, Eskmills Venue in Musselburgh and Dunglass Estate near Cockburnspath, have both had a great year with Dunglass being awarded Best Small Venue at the Drum Scottish Event Awards in October.
It’s safe to say we are thrilled, and a little humbled, by our success during this year’s awards season and would love to say a big thank you to everyone who has nominated or voted for us. We’re already looking forward to helping many more of our customers create the perfect event in 2017.
