Never before have there been so many eating-out occasions. Besides the celebration meal and the business lunch, we now have a plethora of motivations to eat away from home.
In its Eating Out Review 2007, Mintel states that the simple reason for this is that most people's lifestyles are too busy to ignore the ease of a grab-and-go hot snack to take away, a 20-minute fast-food filler or a casual dining experience.
Whatever the food offering, it is essential for outlets to make the right choice of kitchen equipment, from a somewhat bewildering range - combi-ovens, salamanders, cooking ranges, fryers, microwave ovens and contact grills, to name just a few.
At Imperial Catering Equipment, the emphasis is on ensuring that outlets select the correct models by considering limitations of the kitchen space alongside the required usage, providing maximum production output.
The company caters for every kitchen requirement, from oven ranges and fryers to blenders and banqueting equipment, and Buy It! has teamed up with Imperial to offer one lucky reader £1,500-worth of equipment from the Imperial range.
