Welbilt welcomes operators back to demo kitchens after ‘what seems like an eternity’

Welbilt masterclass 1

Welbilt has released its three-month schedule for masterclasses after reopening its demonstration kitchens this week for the first time since last year.

The first masterclass took place on Tuesday and was fully booked within hours of it being released.

A schedule of further dates is already in place to run throughout April, May and June, all focusing on helping operators to restart their businesses.

Steve Hemsil, sales director UK & Ireland at Welbilt, said: “After what seems like an eternity, we are back! Our demo kitchens are open and we are running masterclasses across our Guildford and Sheffield kitchens as well as linking up with First Choice to use their facilities in Cannock.

“We’ll be following strict Covid protocols and will need to limit the number of people that we can have at the masterclasses, but it will be absolutely great to see people again and demonstrate in person how our equipment can help businesses to get back on track.”

The Welbilt masterclasses will initially focus on Convotherm, including the new Convotherm maxx, and Merrychef.

Coinciding with the roadmap to hospitality opening, operators will be able to see the equipment in action and understand the benefits it will bring to menu preparation, speed, improved cooking processes and a consistently high standard of food quality.

“Whether you’re running a small café and want to speed up your order turnover with Merrychef, or a restaurant looking to offer a streamlined, delicious menu, Welbilt has the equipment to match,” said Mr Hemsil. “From catering for hundreds of students, to delivering toasted sandwiches for two (and everything in-between), Welbilt can assist in optimising your menu delivery.”
