Horti Catering working with Fakenham Garden Centre ? bringing High Street expertise into the garden centre industry

Horti Catering Equipment is part of the Catering Projects Group of companies ?This new division of the Catering Projects Group was founded in January 2014. Horti Catering Equipment is able to supply all aspects of Catering Equipment from one off pieces to full schemes and ?turn-key? projects. With the years of experience at Horti Catering Equipment, they can oversee as much or as little of a scheme as required. Recognizing the importance of working with the client to maintain a fully operational site, using the existing facilities, is vital for the garden centre.

Group Managing Director, Andrew Fulham explains, ? We recognized the continued growth in the Garden Centre sector and wanted to expand our business. The name that everyone recommends is Amanda McGreavy, who is well known and respected by all. Amanda was the obvious choice to run Horti Catering, with her vast wealth of knowledge of not only catering equipment but also the market itself. This expertise coupled with Catering Projects High Street brands has taken Horti Catering Equipment to a new and exciting level within this sector.

A recent project has been the successful refurbishment of Fakenham Garden Centre, where owner Martin Turner has seen an immediate increase in footfall and income as a result. Sales in the Caf? are 25 per cent up and overall sales in the centre are between 12 and 15 per cent up. The Caf? features a new floor, a new and extended seating area, new counter equipment and new lighting and heating.

Martin comments: “We met the Horti Catering team on their stand at Glee last year. It was clear to us that they had years of expertise and could harness those in to making the very best of our budget and plans. Our refurbishment was a 100k investment and one that we needed to get right whilst continuing to run the existing coffee shop.?

Managing Director, Amanda McGreavy managed the design and installation process and with her fifteen years of experience in running restaurant and coffee shop projects, it was clear that her advice on what equipment and design features were needed made the whole process a very professional one. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team to anyone thinking of developing a new coffee shop or restaurant refurbishing an existing one.”
