Burger King is continuing to roll out its ‘Open Format’ kitchen model in the UK, with the latest design providing customers with more accessible views into the preparation area.
The fast food chain has just completed a project at Barrow-in-Furness following the opening of a ‘drive thru’ restaurant at Hindpool Retail Park.
The site is due to open on 15 March and will allow customers to see more of the prep area than they normally would in a more traditional store.
Burger King used Pershore-based catering equipment distributor Sprint Group to oversee the kitchen installation and it worked with Burger King’s project management team and various contractors to ensure the modular platform would fit into site, which was formerly a Frankie & Benny’s restaurant.
The kitchen was delivered on time and on budget, conforming to the highest BK mandated hygienic and operational standards, required for all cooking, holding, preparation and wash-up areas.
Key suppliers providing equipment for the kitchen include Middleby UK, True Refrigeration, FEM, HTG Trading and East Anglian Installation Systems (EAIS).
