Asparagus Green were delighted to provide catering for Alexandra House Spa in Huddersfield for its 10th anniversary in September 2017. Guests enjoyed a glass of fizz and fabulous buffet including freshly made and locally sourced home-baked produce.
The spa has been enjoying a decade of providing pampering and wellness to thousands of guests from across Yorkshire and beyond.
The spa has grown from strength to strength over the last decade, growing its team from 3 to 14 staff – many of whom have worked at the spa for several years now, securing funding to purchase its own premises in 2013, raising over £20,000 to support local charities and establishing itself as one of the region’s leading holistic spas with a string of awards.
The spa’s success is particularly impressive when you consider that owner Dr Maxine Stead had no prior experience of either health spas or running a business, having had a 14-year long career in cancer research. In addition, the spa opened just as the world went into recession and the original business plan had to be adapted to reflect a more prudent market.
