Standex Food Service Equipment has added new models to its range of BKI hot service counters and BKI hot ‘grab & go’ cases.
The equipment has been developed specifically for Tesco’s new look hot deli concept, which is being rolled out across the retailer’s estate.
Tesco’s hot deli offer includes whole cooked chickens, gammon joints, chicken portions, southern fried chicken, ribs, pies, sausages, meatloaf, kebabs, savoury eggs, stuffing, fish cakes, potato skins, potato wedges and sweet corn, which are cooked in BKI CombiKing ovens and BKI rotisseries supplied by Standex.
The evolution of the new hot displays has been driven by Tesco to create an aesthetically pleasing presentation and improve customers’ shopping experience. Typically, the format of the hot deli department comprises a TDC hot service counter suited with an HSS hot “grab & go” case.
To meet Tesco’s merchandising objectives, Standex re-engineered its two tier hot service counter, incorporating square end case profiles, flat front glass and an attractive alabaster and oak effect laminate fascia. The counters feature proven technology, including precision stable holding temperatures, independent heat control of each well and an intermediate heated shelf with additional capacity.
To match the service counters, the HSS “grab & go” case has been re-engineered with square end case profiles, a modified canopy and laminate fascia. The case design features a heated air curtain and independent heat control for each shelf to maintain product temperature for up to four hours.
Tesco Counters Operations’ Manager, Adam Smith, stated: “We have worked closely with Standex, within a tight schedule, to create our new hot deli concept. The square profile, flat glass and clean lines reduce reflections in the glass, helping us meet our objective of greater product visibility and allowing our customers to see exactly what they are buying. The laminate fascias also help create a more attractive appearance.”
