Glee 2016 was another successful year for Vision Commercial Kitchens as the stand attracted visitors from garden centres all over the country. Catering within this industry is increasingly important, with more and more garden centres wanting to provide or improve on catering facilities for their customers. Their experience in this industry and also at this event meant that some good discussions were had with visitors about what kind of project and equipment would suit their establishment specifically, allowing them to fully benefit from their offering.
Rational made a great addition to the stand once again, with chefs Alan Evans and Justin Bailey pulling in the crowds with their cook live demonstrations. These showed why the combination oven is a must for garden centre restaurants, being able to produce a wide range and high volume of excellent quality food in minutes. As well as tasting the free samples, visitors could also enter our competition where the prize this year was a Rational knife set. The winner has been chosen and will be announced very soon after they receive a surprise delivery!
On display, they had equipment from a range of suppliers, including the new SelfCookingCentre XS from Rational, which made its first showing at a national exhibition and generated lots of interest. Our Garden Centre, Afternoon Tea and Coffee Shop light equipment themes showcased items such as plant pot table theatre and cake stands, which proved popular, with many visitors taking home one of our shop catalogues.
