After completing his degree in Economics & European Politics, the founder and Managing Director of CaterKing, Ayhan Yazgan, spent time establishing and running a number of busy catering establishments in London and the North West. This gave valuable insight into what products and services were essential to the catering industry and what, as an owner/manager, you look for in a supplier. Ayhan then worked as a steel trader for Daewoo and Corus Steel, where sourcing competitive, quality products across the globe was imperative. It was with this trading experience and 15 years of catering knowledge that led him to set up his own catering supply company in 2001 to service clients throughout the North West.
Based in Burscough, Ayhan initially started single-handedly in one warehouse, looking after all aspects of the business. His efficient next-day delivery service, coupled with a friendly, knowledgeable, cost-effective and honest approach soon won him an enviable number of clients, accumulated through recommendations. Since those humble beginnings, Ayhan has since expanded into the warehouse next door and has worked relentlessly in sourcing quality, products for his customers from both local suppliers and reputable companies on the continent. Without the large expense of a sales team and fleet of company cars, Ayhan is able to keep his prices extremely competitive. He holds accounts with major suppliers, so is able to provide the same products as his larger competitors and he is always happy to source items not already covered in our extensive product list. This service and dedication is accompanied by a genuine caring and understanding of his customers and their needs. Being the size that we are, enables us to react to changes in the market far more quickly than larger organisations.
Ayhan recently became a member of a long-established buying group which allows him access to further discounts and special promotions when buying from other members, which he in turn passes onto his customers.
