Making Hot Food Last in Petrol and Convenience
We often get asked for solutions to reduce waste and prolong the shelf life of heated, cooked and potentially unwrapped product. In the petrol and convenience trade we don’t have the benefit of always knowing when our customers are going to come for food. They flow through the door at all times of the day and a great proportion of food sales in P&C are impulse sales when a customer is coming through the store as a fuel customer or making a convenience purchase. If we don’t have the hot food cabinet stocked and looking fresh there is little chance that we will make that sale – the customer just won’t wait or trust the quality of food. When we are stocked and looking fresh however, we have a strong chance of making that impulse sale, adding to the basket size, potentially upselling to a meal and/or a drink. So the value of a heated cabinet to hold more food throughout the day, fresher for longer is huge.
The Kentucky Humidity Cabinet is always a first suggestion. Capturing and combining the best parts of technology of a pie warmer and a wet bain marie and enhancing that we get something that is better than the sum of its parts. Increasing the humidity in the air, convection heating which means the whole cabinet is heated, allows multi-tiered display and dramatically increasing the shelf life of product. No need for halogen lamps reduces maintenance and removable glass makes cleaning those internal angles easier all increasing the look and saleability of your offer. Kentucky cabinet is available in 3 sizes and also smaller self serve models also available to suit any food offer.
Refrigerated Bench Top Display without cutting into the benchtop
Have a look at the Bighorn Refrigerated Display. We started offering this cabinet for those customers that needed some cold display for drinks, sandwiches, cakes and the like, but didn’t want to lose too much space for the motor and definitely didn’t want to be cutting into benchtops for tricky installation. The Bighorn only requires a standard power point, the motor is on the end of the cabinet, choice of right or left hand side. Standard with double glazed solid front, but with option of sliding front doors for customer self service. We have made some customised racks for customers that want some gastro trays for ingredients for making sandwiches or pizza toppings.
BP Smeaton Grange
We are proud to have been the food equipment supplier for the new BP site at Smeaton Grange, operated by Eddy Nader.
Eddy engaged a retail designer for his new site and the brief was to create a modern, customer focused “café” feel that would drive increased food sales for the surrounding industrial businesses and passing traffic.
The greenfield site afforded Eddy design flexibility. A long food counter was designed that enabled the cooking equipment – Perfect Fryer, Speed Oven and Regular Oven to be located at the back of the counter. The display equipment – Kentucky Hot Display for unwrapped cooked product, Cossiga heated cabinets for pies and pastries and refrigerated cabinets for sandwiches and cold pastries is on the front counter enabling customers to clearly see the range of food on offer. “This design enables console staff to serve and cook food with ease.” said Michael Brick of Meris Food Equipment.
“The cooking equipment we selected is all automated for a consistent result every time and is safe and simple to use. It has provided us with the opportunity to introduce a diverse range of new food that is proving popular with our customers” said Eddy. “ Five weeks in we are seeing daily food sales growth and are confident we are going to achieve our lofty sales targets”
We wish Eddy and his team the best of luck for continued success !!
