Taylor Shaw introduces food kiosk at school contract

Specialist education caterer Taylor Shaw has introduced a food kiosk in one of its school contracts in a bid to reduce queues.

Taylor Shaw worked with Upnorth Foodservice Equipment to design and install the new catering facility, called the Hub, at Biddick School Sports College in Washington, Tyne and Wear.

Commenting on the scheme's pilot at the college, Taylor Shaw's operational manager Alison Lisney said: "With nearly 1,200 students, our priority was to create an environment that would help reduce queues in the main dining areas and provide an additional modern and convenient dining environment within the school grounds."

The caterer was keen to work with a supplier that shared its passion for innovation, and Lisney said that following the immediate success of the prototype, there are now plans to roll out the Hub concept throughout its business in the north of England.

The Hub features bespoke catering equipment providing hot and cold food and drinks for students on the go and will be rolled out to 12 more schools and colleges by the end of 2012.

Tim Whitfield, director of Upnorth Foodservice Equipment, added: "Innovative ideas and concepts like the Hub can only benefit more schools and colleges and help reduce the number of students going off campus and we are excited about the ongoing development of this project."
