Ritchie Catering Equipment has completed an installation at Sheffield Wednesday’s Middlewood Road training ground.

The project, which had to be completed in a limited time due to the short period between the end of the last football season and the beginning of the new season, took a total of 6 weeks, culminating in the five-day install last week.

The football club had approached Ritchies with the project of transforming a former gym space into a catering area where food will be prepared and served to players and staff.

This included the addition of a new wall complete with a serving window, with the area being lined with hygienic wall and flooring.

It also involved the design and manufacture of a brand new extraction unit and walk in chiller, the latter of which was completed with help from Nottingham-based refrigeration firm Storer.

The new equipment installed in the space included two 10 grid Rational combi ovens, a Lincat Opus 800 cookline, a servery provided by Incat Panther and warewashing equipment from Maidaid Halcyon.

The project was undertaken in close collaboration with Sheffield Wednesday’s executive chef Rob Cox.
