A Barking steak restaurant has fought off competition from national businesses to win a catering contract with Coventry University’s new campus in Dagenham.

Cristina’s has secured a two-year catering contract with the university, which is based inside the Grade II listed Civic Centre.

Restaurant owner Cristina Bumbuc said: “This is a truly exciting expansion venture. To be awarded this contract ahead of national competitors is particularly special to us.

“We really look forward to pleasing both students and Dagenham locals with our delicious food and coffee.”

Andy Ginn, associate pro-vice chancellor of CU London, said: “We couldn’t be happier to have partnered with Cristina’s in providing distinctive and exciting catering to our students, staff and guests at our beautiful new facility.”

There are also plans to open a pop-up restaurant in the evenings and pre-booked Christmas dinners.
