European WaterCare has reiterated the difference that a comprehensive package of water treatment products and support can make to a chain operator’s kitchen fortunes after coming on board as a category sponsor of the 2015 FEJ Power List.
This special supplement, which will be distributed alongside the October edition of Foodservice Equipment Journal, profiles 50 of the fastest-growing multi-site operators and the key management and operational professionals that have played a part in their success.
The Power List aims to celebrate the significance that forward-thinking kitchen design and equipment innovation plays in the growth of market-leading operators today.
European WaterCare is the sponsor of the ‘Market Movers’ category, which highlights some of the stand-out performers from across the foodservice spectrum that are successfully creating a kitchen template or formula that can be rolled out across multiple estates as they scale.
Over the next five years the UK foodservice market is predicted to be worth some £56 billion compared to around £47 billion last year. Group operators are driving much of the growth, with pizza delivery outlets, managed branded pubs, coffee shops and other key categories cited among the big industry winners.
“Ambitious group operators are constantly looking for a competitive advantage and innovation within catering equipment plays a key part in delivering this,” says Dan Twiss, head of operations at European Water Care. “Customers are demanding higher levels of product and service and the equipment, back-up and support required to facilitate this have to be innovative and of the highest quality available.”
As a proud British manufacturer and service provider or water treatment to the foodservice industry, European WaterCare is acutely aware of the need to provide operators with a cost-effective, serviceable and connected range of solutions. Both the iX Water Filter range and The Waterslate address these needs.
“iX Water Filters offer an internal, replaceable cartridge – which not only brings down costs, but also protects the environment by reducing unnecessary waste,” says Twiss. “With devices becoming more connected and centrally managed, EWC are now offering the Waterslate. The Waterslate is a managed exchange solution that, by connecting directly to operators building management systems, provides a clear, cost effective and centrally managed solution in conjunction with our expert service technicians.”
