Target Catering Equipment has helped a run-down British pub transform its antiquated kitchen into a modern catering facility utilising the latest induction technology.
The Gloucester-based company worked with the owners of the Royal Oak pub in Tetbury, Gloucestershire to modernise its offering as part of the venue’s redevelopment.
Target says two factors were vital for the pub’s success on reopening as a stylish food and accommodation-led venue: the owners’ vision and the commitment to embracing new cooking technology.
David Pedrette, Target managing director, says that local-food led pubs like the Royal Oak are beacons for a renaissance in regional hospitality, but to achieve excellence they must push the boundaries, including what they do with their kitchens.
He says front-of-house performance is no longer enough when kitchens at the heart of hospitality businesses have widely-publicised food hygiene ratings through local Scores on the Doors schemes.
“Owners like the Royal Oak’s count on us to reinvent kitchens to break free of traditions that clearly no longer work,” he said. “To do this, we design, manufacture and install bespoke kitchens to meet the need of a revitalised hospitality and leisure industry based on quality, great food and fantastic service. Whether we’re working in the Cotswolds or further afield, it’s our unique contribution to a new age of British regional hospitality.”
Pedrette insists Target is much more than just a supplier and installer, as its team actively researches, sources and designs high-quality bespoke induction cooking equipment that saves customers time and money, and reduces their carbon footprint.
