New servery at Dragon School uses Moffat counters to fit in with tight installation timetable
The Dragon was founded as the Oxford Preparatory School in 1877 by a group of university dons to educate their own children. It has evolved into a modern co-educational school for 850 children aged four to 13 based on two sites. The school provides a dynamic balance of imagination, originality and academic discipline while preparing pupils for the rigours of life in the 21st century.
Recently the Dragon had the opportunity to upgrade the servery at the Prep, based at its Bardwell Road site, which has a total of 640 day and boarding children. To make sure there was no disruption to pupils all the work had to undertaken in the Easter holidays. Factory First.com Ltd from High Wycombe designed, planned and project-managed the job and carried out all the work within the tight two and a half week timetable.
Moffat’s drop-in displays for service of hot or cold food
As well as preserving food quality, display units in serving areas need to look smart and show food at its best to encourage customer take-up. Moffat has covered all these issues with its Deluxe range of drop-in food serveries. The individual units are delivered ready to drop into shop-fitted service counters, custom-built breakfast bars or buffets.
The Deluxe range includes both chilled and heated units: a bains marie with enviro well, hot top displays, a chilled well and chilled displays. All are designed to add style and visual appeal to the service area with curved corners, bright polished stainless steel supports and gantries, and internal illumination.
John Wannan brings ‘unrivalled, possibly unique’ track record back home to British manufacturer
Moffat’s new sales and marketing manager is a familiar face who has been responsible for helping develop and enhance some of the foodservice market’s most successful equipment lines. John Wannan says that joining Moffat is a bit like coming home – he first started with the company in the late 1980s, as an apprentice.
No less than three of the projects shortlisted for the Grand Prix awards at the CEDA Conference 2012 featured Moffat catering equipment – and two of them went on to win their categories. The Awards were announced during the Gala dinner, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire on Friday 4th of May.
Deli Display helps school caterers take on the High Street
Moffat has extended its popular Versicarte range of mobile food servery counters with the launch of Deli Display versions.
Versicarte is a modular system of trolleys that caterers can use to create a complete food servery area. Butted together they form a straight or angular service counter, while stand alone units can create a free-flow self-service environment. The new Deli models feature attractive, curved glass screens, glass shelving and an illuminated gantry that all help display the food to best advantage. They also have a useful storage cabinet below.
