QED modular system selected for new coffee shop in historic highland market town

QED has recently completed the design and installation of a complete new coffee shop system at Morton’s Coffee Lounge in the historic highland market town of Pitlochry, Perth & Kinross, Scotland.

Morton’s opened for business in May 2014, and occupies a prime location in Atholl Road in the centre of Pitlochry. The premises was previously a pharmacy, but has now been totally transformed into a contemporary coffee shop experience.

It is owned and operated by Donald and Linda Morton, assisted by their daughter Claire and other staff. The family already has extensive experience in the hospitality business, having run two guest houses in the Pitlochry area for many years.

Morton’s Coffee Lounge caters for local residents as well as the many thousands of tourists that visit the town every year. They source their coffee beans from a local roaster and do most of the baking required for the food produce on the premises. Regular fare includes sandwiches, Panini’s, cakes and soft drinks.

After researching several suppliers for the refurbishment of the Coffee Lounge, Donald and Linda opted for the Continental Coffee Shop System from QED. It is a modular scheme that has a sturdy metal frame with wood veneer or coloured lacquer cladding, along with composite stone worktops and state-of-the-art refrigerated counters.

For the Coffee Lounge, the family chose QED’s Decoration L range in a rich walnut finish, in keeping with the character of the premises. The scheme includes chilled self-service and serve-over counters, bar modules, a cash register counter and mirrored back bar shelving.

Despite only being open for a short time, Morton’s Coffee Lounge is already doing a roaring trade, for which the style and ambience of the premises is a major contributory factor.

Commenting on the project, Donald Morton said:

‘We looked at many options, but came to the conclusion that the QED system was exactly what we were looking for. During the design and installation process, we received first class advice and service from Robert Campbell and his team.’
