The Current Situation

The staycation spending has happened and now we are all looking forward to Firework night, Halloween and then, of course, Christmas.

But first, and it is a big but, everyone is waiting to see how much more their energy bills will be from October and then again in January.

This is of double concern to you of course. Your own energy bills will go up and your potential clientele will have their pockets squeezed even more meaning they will have less to spend having meals out.

So, what can you do?

Save money

The CK Direct revolutionary Commercial Kitchen Heat Recovery system will provide your establishment with all its hot water needs.

It can also temper the fresh air supply too.

Installation is quick and easy with no need for cookline alterations and there is no effect on the extraction system.

It can be quickly and easily retrofitted and will provide a fantastic ROI.

Heat Recovery System

Run special deals for “slow days”

Every restaurant has “slow days” so why not offer “special deals” for them and fill more covers.

Special Lunch-time menus

How about a 1-dish lunch menu to encourage people to drop in for a quick bite.

It will introduce new people to the restaurant and could lead to an increase in evening visitors.

Check all systems are “Go”

If business is going to slow a little you need to make sure that everything is in tip-top working order so that you won’t have any breakdowns which could lose you customers on the night and potentially into the future.

Here’s a check list you can tick off:

  • Is the Ventilation in the restaurant working properly?
  • Extraction in the kitchen – has it been maintained recently?
  • Air-handling – is the balance, between kitchen and restaurant, right?
  • Odour control – is it working efficiently?
  • Gas interlock – all OK?
  • Lighting – have you sufficient back-up bulbs?
  • Canopy filters – have you enough back-ups?
  • Sanitisation – do you have fogging and enough table cleansers?

If you have issues with any of the above a quick call to CK Direct on 01733 230378 can soon resolve the situation.

CK Direct has been providing commercial kitchens all of the above since 2002 and is a well-respected supplier to the catering industry.
