Unlike some other catering sectors, hotel kitchens never really stop. We understand the pressures of running a hotel kitchen and the need for everything to work as it should 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
How we support Hotels
One of the most important things in your hotel is the restaurant cooking equipment, as one unexpected failure can potentially ruin a whole day’s service. The worst-case scenario of a kitchen fire or flood could put your business out of service for weeks. We provide pre-planned preventative maintenance packages (PPM) that are tailored to the specific needs and budget of your hotel kitchen to help you avoid equipment failure in the middle of a busy breakfast service. The cost of regular servicing can be factored into your monthly budget and will help you fend off unexpected repair bills when you can least afford them.
Our engineers will come out and regularly test and service your equipment and repair or replace any parts before they wear out or malfunction. Hotel kitchens can often have a huge range of catering equipment that requires specialised maintenance to prevent it from failing. This includes the servicing of ovens, refrigeration units and chillers, air conditioning units, deep fat fryers, ice machines, and other hotel kitchen equipment. We understand that everything must work in tandem to provide your guests the service they expect. Our engineers are also fully certified to test your gas appliances to ensure they meet gas safety regulations.
