This week’s Market Talk is a special episode on ‘Designing the Future Foodservice Experience’ brought to you in association with Marco Beverage Systems, the leading supplier of innovative water boilers and coffee brewers.
Marco’s commercial director Daniel Versey, Vision Commercial Kitchens’ Jack Sharkey and Loaf & Coal’s Arnaud Kaziewicz join us for a fascinating discussion on the considerations shaping F&B design as the lines between traditional retail, foodservice and convenience environments blur.
There has been a considerable amount of product innovation within Marco’s portfolio over the past 12 months and Versey details the steps it has taken to create equipment which meets the priorities of operators, and underlines the beverage strategies that can drive efficiency improvements and profits for customers.
Sharkey gives his observations on how operators can create attractive dining spaces for customers and reveals the ways in which Covid-19 have altered the thought process behind F&B design in various sectors.
Meanwhile, Kaziewicz – who formerly headed up high street chain EAT’s food strategy prior to its takeover by Pret A Manager – shares his experiences of setting up his own venture, Loaf & Coal, over the last few months. He discusses why technology and footprint have been so important to the equipment decisions he has made so far.
