Hobart UK Reaches Out to Owners of its Machines as Talks are Underway to Move the Restart Forward to 22 June

As the UK emerges from lockdown, operators are getting their kitchens ready and open for service once again.

The industry has responded to the current crisis with its usual flair and innovation, with restaurants such as TGIs and Wagamama offering Click and Collect which is proving hugely popular with diners.

Other operators such as Cote have begun work to create restaurant quality dining experiences in people’s own homes, delivering chilled bistro meals to the door.

The planned restart is at different stages for different operators; there is speculation that restaurants may be able to serve customers in outside areas from as early as 22 June. All are keen to get going and open their kitchens for trade once again. And there is clearly a market for it.

Many of the big operators rely on Hobart Service to maintain their critical catering equipment and Hobart Service remains committed to offering them competitive terms and technical support to suit their specific needs.

Now, to further extend support recovery across the industry, Hobart Service is also offering open access to a library of operational and technical guides and has developed a suite of documents especially for this period to aid individual organisations to restart machines after shutdown.

In addition, to help all owners of Hobart machines through this cash-tight period, Hobart Service has launched an on-line Price Check tool to allow operators to price check quotations on fitted parts and ensure that they are getting a fair deal.

Keith Mackie, Managing Director: Hobart Service, comments: “We don’t believe any Hobart users should be paying more than list price for Hobart OEM parts. In line with innovations we are seeing across the industry, Hobart has developed a tool to allow you to check prices you have been quoted against our OEM list price.

We understand that not all owners of Hobart equipment require a maintenance contract but, after a period of shutdown, they may require an inspection and works carried out to get their machines up and running safely and hygienically once again.

Between now and September 2020 we will be offering a 20% discount on all Hobart fitted parts to new and non-contractual customers to support them through restart.”
