Rieber’s latest ACS Varithek technology now includes fire suppression as well as self-ventilation.

BGL Rieber MD Gareth Newton reveals why mobile front cooking systems can provide a broad sales opportunity for dealers:

There is a unique sales opportunity for all UK catering distributors who cover all sectors, from schools to stadia, offices to pubs, restaurants, and hotels.

A catering solution that helps companies entice staff back to work, educational establishments to ‘bubble’ if needed, one which can serve hot food to limited numbers with a restricted flow, and with the option to serve in temporary facilities.

A conventional mobile servery might work for one bubble, but there are better mobile solutions for multi-bubbles such as K-Pot portable electric chafing dishes that serve food hot but can also cook when needed.

And how about a front cooking theatre experience? The latest ACS Varithek technology now includes fire suppression as well as self-ventilation, so no one can object to using them virtually anywhere.

Catering for events and match days means multiple functions, so what could be better than wheeling in the portable cooking power as needed?

Rieber mobile front cooking stations, backed up by portable electric chafers and hot/cold food transport boxes, which can also make a temporary countertop, mean caterers can cook virtually anywhere there is power.

Areas previously thought of as unsuitable or just too difficult, such as pit lane garages, hotel foyers, public atria and private boxes could now have a front cooking experience, complete with chefs.

Wherever customers want to get into ‘street’ style food, open new event catering areas or cater to groups that want to isolate, mobile front cooking stations, portable electric chafers, and food transport solutions should spring to mind – which they will, if distributors are putting ideas in front of people.
