For over 17 years, the Young family has run The Deeping Caravan Park, situated in the historical town of Market Deeping, Lincolnshire.  The Deeping Caravan Park stretches over 12.5 acres of land, providing luxury holiday homes.

The Ranch Restaurant includes a two-lane bowling centre, an indoor and outdoor playing area and the superb new restaurant and kitchen.

CaterFix has been known for several years to be an “amazing” local business. Our “good communication” and flexibility is one of the reasons why The Deeping Caravan Park chose to work closely with CaterFix adding “we are very pleased with the kitchen and the superb service CaterFix have offered us.” Darren Young commented.

The kitchen design allows the restaurant to offer a quick service bar menu; products like the Lincat pizza oven and the Foster prep station being of great use. However, the Young family also wanted to cater for their resident’s tastes, which include a Sunday roast lunch and full evening menu. The Rational 10 grid Combi oven is vital to achieve this.

The front counter design had to compliment the rustic look of the centre and looks superb. The front counter also allows the Young family to operate the bowling lanes efficiently.

“We are delighted to have been involved with the Ranch”, says Ajaz Akhtar (Managing Director at CaterFix). “We worked very closely with Darren and Rhys during the design stage to ensure all the various needs of The Caravan Park would be met. We met many times on site, proving that a local business is the best set up to deal with local customers. All in all a very successful project has resulted in a superb kitchen and front counter.”

Flame on Broadway in Peterborough is a brand-new bar and restaurant. The location itself has been transformed from its dark South American décor to a much brighter interior for the new Italian Restaurant. Everything has been replaced from the lights, to the flooring and it even has a new bar, because of all this it now feels more modern and up to date. The restaurant is now going to be serving food such as pizza, pasta, seafood and much more from 12am to 10pm every day of the week. However, Friday and Saturday nights the tables will be moved to provide a dance floor and the music turned up through until 2am.

CaterFix supplied new and reconditioned equipment for this busy kitchen. Diana advised she started Flame with her husband and mother, but it was her husband and the head chef who worked together with CaterFix to make sure the kitchen was laid out in the most efficient way. The head chef said, “all the equipment is great, and they would be using CaterFix again.”

Thorpe Wood Care Home in Peterborough provides residential and dementia care for the elderly.

It’s a new 50 bed care home which opened in early February 2019 and is located next to Thorpe Wood Golf Course and Ferry Meadows. It’s part of the Peterborough Care Group which has been a family run business since 1984.

CaterFix were delighted to install their brand-new kitchen which will help to produce the varied menus and diets at the new home. CaterFix previously installed the kitchen at The Maltings Care Home also located in Peterborough in 2014 which is just one of the reasons why Peterborough Care decided to use CaterFix for their new home. CaterFix are proud of their ongoing relationship with Peterborough Care for providing equipment but also service and maintenance. The company Stated, “We have had CaterFix equipment previously in our other homes and we wanted to extend this efficiency to Thorpe Wood Care Home as this was a proven combination of equipment and layout”.

Peterborough Care was founded by Shammy and David Marjara, Shammy who is a registered nurse had a real passion for working with older people in hospitals and the community. She and her husband David opened Broadleigh Nursing Home which started with just 8 beds. Today, Peterborough Care consists of four care homes totalling 177 beds with the fifth care home Thorpe Wood which offers a further 50 beds. Shammy and Dave were later joined by their two sons Amar and Ajay Marjara. As the company has grown, the ethos of person-centred care that was created by the founders Shammy and Dave has remained at the centre of the approach. They strive to achieve safe and effective care promoting choice, dignity, equality, independence and transparency. This is evident when visiting any of these beautiful care homes.

At CaterFix we have a team of inhouse CAD designers who worked with Peterborough Care to ensure the new kitchen would meet all their needs. We offer superb 3D visuals, detailed M&E and kitchen plan drawings, we also ensured they had all the technical details required to pursue their project quickly. Our team worked closely with Peterborough Care to make sure their new kitchen met all the needs of the staff who would be working there. We wanted the kitchen to flow nicely making cooking in there as efficient as possible. Philip advised “From planning to installation, it was all trouble free. Quality of service is our main priority and that is why we always choose CaterFix”.

 

The kitchen is fitted with full stainless-steel fabrication for all their work tops and storage. For cooking they have two Rational Combi ovens one 10 grid and one 6 grid, double fryers, two Lincat induction hobs, a Samsung microwave and a Lincat hot water boiler. But not forgetting all the refrigeration they have on site from the Fosters undercounter fridge at the heart of the kitchen to the multiple Fosters slimline upright fridges and freezers they have in the storage room. We couldn’t have done this kitchen without the right commercial equipment from our well-known UK suppliers. Ajay Marjara a director at Peterborough Care commented, “Once planning permission had been granted to build Thorpe Wood Care Home involving CaterFix to commission the kitchen was a no brainer.”

The Queens Head in Bulwick near Corby had been closed for 18 months before being taken over by Jim Trevor and his family. This pub in the small village of Bulwick was quite run down after being shut for so long and it needed a lot of work. Jim renovated the pub and gave it back the character and charm it was missing, now it looks like a classy well-kept country pub with many of its original features. The Queens Head reopened on the 5th November 2018 and has been busy ever since serving exceptionally good food to its many visitors. It’s the only pub in the village and has a caravan park just up the road so it’s never short of customers. One member of staff said, “We have a great reputation already in and around the village which is purely down to word of mouth”.

Jim is very hands on at all his pubs, working in the kitchen to cover staff when needed and being the handy man always comes in useful. In total Jim and his family own three beautiful pubs including The Six Bells in Witham on the Hill and Posh Fish and Chips in Peterborough which was previously The Beehive.

CaterFix have fitted out kitchens and provided catering equipment for Jim at all of his sites. Danny the head Chef at The Queens Head and an employee of Jim’s for over 8 years advised “We always use CaterFix and have done for a long time, the service is always very good with everyone at CaterFix being helpful and efficient”.

For this kitchen we installed:

– 3x Foster FFC4/2 Flex Draws NEW

– Blue Seal Electric Turbo Fan E391M NEW

– XR2H 2 Door Counter RECON

– Frymaster Fryer RECON

– Blue Seal Flat Top RECON

– Falcon Griddle RECON

We are delighted to complete our first full kitchen project of 2019 at the 800 year old historic Benington Church.

With great support from Lincat, Hobart and other leading UK suppliers who we used to complete this kitchen to such a high standard. We don’t think there are many commercial kitchens that have beautiful stained-glass windows like these.

As always great work by the Caterfix team to complete this job over Christmas to have the kitchen ready for an early January opening.

Caterfix are delighted with our refurb at Bera’s Restaurant in Colchester this week.

Bera’s was born from the owner’s idea to combine tradition and innovation in Italian cuisine, making use of seasoned and first rate ingredients, preferably zero-mile products.

You can see a picture of the kitchen during the refurb and once it has all been completed. Full of superb new and quality reconditioned equipment at a budget price, all with full warranty. Blue Seal burners, Williams freezer and chiller, Precision and True counters, Hobart dishwasher and plenty of fabrication.

We wish them all the luck in the future and look forward to

supplying them with whatever they may need as their restaurant grows.
