"The Recipe is an event catering company, based in London.

We have recently moved into new premises in Whitechapel, and we appointed Factory First as our primary contractors for the fit-out.

We are delighted with the standard of finish delivered by Factory First, which came in on budget.

It is worth noting that the fit-out of our premises to place at the end of December. The team from Factory First exhibited a great deal of flexibility working during this busy period.

I am happy to recommend Factory First to any prospective clients. "
