Williams refrigeration at The Heart, Caledonian UniversityWith 17,000 students, catering at Glasgow’s Caledonian University is a huge operation.  The brand new main restaurant is part of a major rebuild, The Heart of the Campus project.  “It’s called The Heart partly because it’s right in the middle of the campus,” says head of catering, Frank McCabe, “but also because it’s built round leafy courtyards where customers can relax in the fresh air – and because it’s designed to inspire social gatherings.”  At the heart of any catering operation is the kitchen – and the heart of The Heart is built around cooking equipment from Falcon and refrigeration from Williams.

“The restaurant reflects the rich ethnic mix of students here,” says Frank.  “It’s essentially a food hall with a wide variety of different offerings, many cooked live – it’s great theatre.  So we have everything from salad bars to sushi counters to soup stations, burgers on the flame grill, pizzas, a soup station, deli bars, fresh fruit, grab & go merchandisers…”  (more…)
