For the kitchen area, QED has supplied stainless steel tables, an upright freezer, a food preparation table with saladette containers, a Blue Seal cooker and boiling top, a Classeq Duo under-counter dishwasher and a Merrychef E4 combination oven.
Finest Italian coffee with home-made food
Sandra Porter, who owns Kings Coffee and runs it with her daughter, said that they chose QED as their principle food service equipment supplier after doing extensive research into the latest coffee shop systems.
As Sandra explains:
‘Although we were on a tight budget, Robert Campbell and his team provided the display counters and support equipment at a reasonable price that was a perfect match with our ideas for the interior décor of the shop.
‘At Kings Coffee, we source the very finest Italian coffee and combine it with totally home-made food, which is freshly prepared on the premises every day.
‘Given his long experience in the catering industry, Robert was able to provide us with the best combination of food service facilities that precisely fitted our requirements
‘With the support that we received from QED at the outset, we are already enjoying strong sales from repeat customers, all of whom are very complimentary about the style and ambience of the shop and the quality of the food and drinks on offer.’
As well as coffee shops, QED supplies hotels, restaurants, visitor centres, staff canteens and many other retail and catering establishments throughout the UK.
