Electrolux has become the latest manufacturer to remind operators to ensure their kitchen equipment can cope with any sharp spikes in summer business.
The company says that with a packed summer of sport around the corner and an anticipated increase in visitors to the UK, food-to-go operators need to make sure their equipment is up to scratch.
“There will be a huge number of people eating on the go this summer, particularly in London; the Olympic Park alone is expected to attract 180,000 visitors each day too,” said sales director, Stuart Flint. “Operators therefore must make sure they have the right equipment in place to keep up with demand without affecting quality of food or customer experience.”
Flint says Electrolux noted operators paying particular attention to its range of grills and cafe-style products during its recent appearance at Hotelympia.
“People are clearly aware of the opportunities because there was huge interest in our food-on-the-move equipment at Hotelympia, from our HSG Panini Grill to Libero Point, a visually striking cooking station suited perfectly for street-food concepts, which are becoming increasingly popular,” he said.
