Peterborough-based dealer CaterFix has celebrated its 21st anniversary.
The firm marked its milestone with an evening at The Bull Hotel in Peterborough filled with live music, a three-course meal, and company quizzes with prizes and presentations. Local guests from Peterborough United, Banyan Tree, Brewery Tap, Charters Bar, Moor Farm and others joined the CaterFix team in celebrating this landmark date.
Specialising in servicing, repairing and selling new and reconditioned commercial catering equipment, the company was founded by David Iacono in 2000. In 2017 former Foster UK sales manager Ajaz Akhtar took over, moving to a nearby larger location. Since then the company has experienced growth and expansion, looking after over 400 customers across Cambridgeshire and the south east.
Over the past 21 years CaterFix has flourished into a thriving local business that takes pride in providing its customers with a fast and friendly service. The firm’s 900ft2 warehouse has been organised into an arrangement of labelled new and reconditioned catering equipment, featuring products from brands including Foster, Hobart, Lincat, Blue Seal and Rational – all displayed on its new and updated e-commerce website.
Whilst the company’s services and operations have expanded, CaterFix’s underlying principles have remained the same, according to Akhtar. “It’s not the bricks and mortar that makes up a company, but the people you build your team with,” he said. “CaterFix members talk about how working at CaterFix is ‘not just a job but like working with your family’ with ‘family values being held so high’. We are looking forward to the next 21 years!”
