Worcestershire equipment dealer Sprint has played a key part in creating a rooftop tea garden at Selfridges’ flagship store in London.
The company has installed a bespoke stainless steel kitchen for restaurant operator Daylesford, which is serving afternoon tea, light lunches and drinks at the retailer’s ‘Big British Tea Party’.
Running until September 2nd, the tea party is part of Selfridges’ Big British Bang, which celebrates the nation’s culture, history and tradition.
Sprint’s managing director David Ryan said the job was a “once in a lifetime project” given it has been designed with the Diamond Jubilee and London Olympics in mind.
“We faced a few challenges along the way but are delighted with the results,” said Ryan. “We had to ensure all of the equipment could fit in the lift before hauling it over a one metre high kitchen wall.”
Daylesford will use the kitchen to serve the “highest tea on Oxford Street”. As well as food and beverages, visitors to the terrace will also be able to watch performances from British music artists and enjoy a game of crazy golf course surrounded by 200 four metre high birch trees.
Sprint was founded back in 1994 and operates a nationwide 24/7 maintenance service, as well as providing refrigeration and catering equipment.
