Gateshead-based Core Catering Maintenance has led projects to install Synergy Grills for a growing North East England pub and hotel group.
Proud Inns has had four SG630 Synergy Grills fitted in each of the four restaurant kitchens in Durham and the surrounding area.
“We were looking for quality, innovation and speed and we wanted to buy British,” said Steve Proud, business development manager at family-run Proud Inns.
“Our kitchens are busy producing a very high standard of pub food and both superior quality and efficiency is important. Synergy Grill gives us a top quality, British made product. The grills are both easy to use and easy to clean, thanks to Synergy Grills innovative atomising technology.
“They are also very efficient and we believe we will achieve a 50% saving on gas usage.
“Even more importantly, the presentation of food produced on our Synergy Grills is superb with chargrill marks on our chicken and steaks. The feedback from our chefs has been brilliant.”
Synergy Grill works at a very high temperature and its fat atomising technology is claimed to create juicy and succulent grilled food while using around half the energy of a conventional grill.
Justin Cadbury CEO and chairman of Synergy Grill, said: “Proud Inns is a growing business with four fabulous pub restaurants. They told us they were looking for innovation in their kitchens and we are delighted that they recognised the advantages that a Synergy Grill brings.
“Our grills help chefs to produce succulent, delicious grilled meat and vegetables and our fat atomising technology means they are easy to clean.
“The patented burner is fuel efficient and produces a very high level of heat. It only needs to be turned on when the grill is in use, further reducing energy costs.”
Proud Inns run four venues: the Kings Head, Lanchester, the Jolly Drovers, Consett, the Bluebell Inn, Stanley and the Falcon, Prudhoe. The company was founded by husband and wife, Brian and Michelle Proud.
