Some Background

Mount Charles Group was established with a vision from their Chairman Trevor Annon. After several years working in the contract catering industry, Trevor became passionate about creating a company that would be able to compete with the multi-nationals while retaining the core values and approach of a local-owned organisation. From small acorns grow mighty oaks, and from a standing start in 1988, Trevor grew the company from what it is now; a force to be reckoned with in the industry, and one that now employs nearly 2,000  people. What hasn’t changed though, is our family-run, personal approach and our inherent commitment to local people and local produce. It’s that home grown way of doing business that makes us who we are, and they are proud of that’. Mount Charles were named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed companies in the 2019 Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards programme.

We are very excited to welcome the Mount Charles team to the Griffith campus!
