Configured to suit service

In the last decade, consumer appetite for dining out has increased dramatically – and now diners have more options than ever before. As a result, restaurant and catering spaces are changing.

Diners no longer go out to eat solely for the food, they want to be engaged in other ways too. This ‘theater dining’ movement has seen an increase in the open kitchen concept, where food is prepared in plain sight.

Open kitchens can’t be laid out in a traditional format, so choosing suitable equipment is essential, not only for the aesthetic but also for operational functionality. In addition, operators need to make optimum use of the limited space available to increase efficiency, boost preparation time and maintain high-quality service standards.

True’s range of counter and undercounter refrigerators and freezers combine a workspace for food preparation on top and refrigerator or freezer space directly underneath. Chefs can store ingredients below where the finished product is being prepared with endless configuration options, keeping operations efficient and aesthetics pleasing.

Prepared to perfection

In the restaurant and catering industry, preparation is key to a successful service.

And when it comes to keeping your preparation areas organized, clean and food-safe, you need equipment you can rely on. True’s range of chilled preparation solutions can help you optimize your operations for a more efficient service while ensuring the optimum preservation of your ingredients.

Manufactured specifically to meet the demands of a busy food preparation area, they give your team direct access to organized and perfectly preserved chilled food items without slowing down service, keeping your ingredients safe to consume without compromising their quality.

Plus, it doesn’t matter how busy service gets because True’s solutions have been tested in the most demanding kitchen environments, designed to withstand the heat and pressures of the busiest of services and achieve the longest possible service life.

Our True equipment is always working, constantly maintaining great temperatures and also helping us to achieve cost savings in terms of energy use.”
