Caterfix birthday celebrations at the Bull Hotel with owner Ajaz Akhtar and his team.

CaterFix is a Peterborough based company specialising in servicing, repairing and selling new and reconditioned commercial catering equipment. First founded by David Iacono in 2000, in 2017 former Foster UK Sales Manager Ajaz Akhtar took over, moving locations to Padholme Road East. Since then the company has experienced good growth and expansion, looking after over 400 customers across Cambridgeshire and the South East of the country

Last Friday CaterFix celebrated it’s 21st anniversary at The Bull Hotel Peterborough. The evening was filled with live music, a three-course meal, company quizzes with lots of prizes and presentation! Local Guests from: Peterborough United, Banyan Tree, Brewery Tap, Charters Bar, Moor Farm and many others joined us in celebrating this landmark date.

Over the past 21 years CaterFix has flourished into a thriving local business that takes great pride in providing its customers with a superb, fast and friendly service. CaterFix’ 900 square foot warehouse has been organised into a fantastic arrangement of labelled new and reconditioned catering equipment, featuring products from Foster, Hobart, Lincat, Blue Seal, Rational and more – all displayed on our new and updated e-commerce website.

Whilst the company’s services and operations have expanded, CaterFix’ underlying principles have remained the same. Ajaz Akhtar, Managing Director, says: “It’s not the bricks and mortar that makes up a company, but the people you build your team with”. CaterFix’ members talk about how working at CaterFix is “not just a job but like working with your family” with “family values being held so high”. We are looking forward to the next 21 years!

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.”

We just want to say a massive thank you to all our customers and suppliers who attended the Big Bash 2 last Monday, to make it another successful event. Foster, Lincat and Hobart were all here to talk to any customers who were interested in their products.

There was great food served all day by the chefs at Rational and we also had delicious fresh pizza courtesy of Ascentia, so everyone left feeling happy and full.

The staff here at CaterFix enjoyed meeting the new customers who attended and also seeing lots of familiar faces. We had some great orders on the day with deals and discounts for all.

Until next time…..

Two weeks today CaterFix will be attending the Business Booth Networking Event at the Peterborough Greyhounds.

Come and see us on Tuesday 5th March between 10am-1pm. See you all there 😊
