Catering firm completes design, supply and installation of new café at Leighton Hospital
C&C Catering Equipment has completed the design, supply and installation of a new café at Leighton Hospital near Crewe.
The project is valued at approximately £90,000 and was completed with an accelerated installation window of just three days from the original week C&C were given. The job was completed on time and on budget.
The café features Counterline chilled displays, counters and fabrication. It also boasts Foster refrigerators, Merrychef ‘Eikon' Ovens, and Hobart Warewashing equipment.
The choice of equipment is befitting to the hospital's brief of offering a ‘grab-and-go' catering service for its often time-pressed staff, visitors and patients.
Numerous chilled displays dominate a large section of the café, allowing customers to easily view and access the foods they want and proceed to the checkout area with minimal fuss. Quick hot food options are also made available via the Merrychef ‘Eikon' Ovens.
"We're delighted to have completed another successful project with the NHS," said C&C project manager, Keith Hartharn.
"We're pleased to hear the new café has been so well received and is already enjoying increased sales. There's no better stamp of approval than that."
The main contractor for this project was a local firm, Red Tree Building Contractors. The new 80-seater catering facility at Leighton Hospital was part of a wider refurbishment to the building's main entrance, which now boasts an all-glass façade. Following the project, the area also features a new shop, reception, toilet facilities, and an ATM machine.
