NWCE Foodservice Equipment will this afternoon cut the ribbon to mark the opening of a fully functioning development kitchen.
The Northern Powerhouse Kitchen (as it will be known) was created after NWCE’s partnership with the government on its Northern Powerhouse Partner Program.
The Mayor of Bolton, Hilary Fairclough, is among the special guests attending the opening ceremony.
The Bolton-based facility has been developed and created with a range of uses in mind, with the main purpose being a kitchen and catering area for training and menu development purposes.
It will be open to catering managers, chefs, distributors, clients, manufacturers and other members of the foodservice industry.
Design houses can use the kitchen as a base in which to bring perspective clients to show them a working example of what they can create.
A mezzanine area above the kitchen contains two separate office spaces and flexi space that can be used as a break area or for conferences or private meetings.
All of these areas will be available to use from Friday 28 February and can be booked via NWCE Foodservice Equipment’s website.
Justin Bailey, business development manager at NWCE Foodservice Equipment, said: “We’re so proud of the work that has gone into creating the ‘Northern Powerhouse Kitchen’ and we’re all so excited to allow our fellow colleagues within the foodservice industry to use and benefit from it.
“We’re also going to be working with all sorts of charities to make a difference within our local community and further afield.”
