Warewashing giant Winterhalter has hailed the impact that chain operators continue to make on the UK foodservice market after signing up as a category sponsor for the inaugural FEJ Power List, which is published next month.
This special supplement will be distributed alongside the October edition of Foodservice Equipment Journal and 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.
Winterhalter is the sponsor of the ‘Chain Champions’ category, which honours the chain businesses that stand out in the market for their continued growth and commitment to delivering a kitchen operation that can scale successfully across multiple sites.
“We work with most of the country’s leading high street chains, supplying equipment and chemicals as well as servicing warewashers,” said Winterhalter UK’s managing director Stephen Kinkead. “The quality of our products and service are unparalleled in this sector. We want to celebrate the innovation, consistent quality and economic contribution that chains make to the foodservice industry in the UK.
“It’s a truly dynamic sector: today’s independent could be tomorrow’s chain, and we believe that’s fairly unique to the UK,” continued Kinkead. “The success of the chains underlines consumer demand for consistency, quality and familiarity. The chains deliver them in spades, on a daily basis.”
Winterhalter provides a total solution for warewashing, from pre-sales advice to after-sales service, training and maintenance. Alongside its undercounter, passthrough and multi tank conveyor dish and glasswashers, the company’s range includes utensil washers, advanced water treatment machines, cleaning chemicals and detergents.
Kinkead said the brand was proud to be working with many names that have become recognised fixtures on the UK high street. “From coffee shops and pizzerias to pubs and noodle bars, you’ll often find a Winterhalter whirring away in the corner delivering consistently good wash results. And that’s the essence of what chains demand from their equipment: quality, reliability and consistency,” he said.
