Danish combi oven brand Houno is strengthening its presence in the UK by opening a dedicated showroom within Middleby UK’s headquarters near Wigan.
The company has been making combi ovens for 40 years and regards the UK as one of its most important export markets.
The showroom will be able to seat up to 24 people and offer customers a chance to see its portfolio up close. It includes seven sizes of Visual Cooking ovens as well as three sizes of the compact CombiSlim ovens.
The Houno showroom will also function as a venue for exclusive Houno events, kicking off with two ’Scandinavian Evenings’ on June 21-22 to mark the official opening of the facility.
Houno’s chef team will take the guests on a four-course journey into Scandinavian cuisine made in the company’s ovens during the event.
“The UK is a significant market to us, which is why we are opening a dedicated Houno showroom on UK soil”, said Houno’s business development manager Vincent Van Delft.
“The showroom enables us to show Houno products in an innovative way to UK-based clients. Hopefully we will host many guests in the showroom over the next couple of years.”
Houno first started exporting to the UK in 1985 and has been part of the Middleby Corporation since 2006. It claims to be the only combi oven manufacturer in the world that has a 16-grid (1/1 GN) oven in its product range.
