The National Catering Equipment Centre (NCEC), described as the ‘Wembley of the catering equipment industry’ will be the first of its kind in the UK.
The 20,000sq ft. space will act as a permanent space to showcase leading brands, with the aim of providing impartial advice and trials on services and products.
The NCEC will be equipped with a fully functional training and demonstration kitchen, and onsite development chef Dean Starling will be available to give advice on equipment, menu development and onsite catering.
The NCEC is the brainchild of industry giant Nisbets, and will display many of the brands that are exclusively stocked there. Already confirmed brands in the NCEC include; Dynamic; Olympia; Samsung; Hoshizaki; Thor; Winterhalter; Burco; Lincat; Pira; Polar; LEC; Buffalo; Waring; Churchill; and Steelite.
"The NCEC is an exciting initiative for the hospitality industry” says Keith Warren, director of CESA.
“By allowing customers to try equipment before they buy it, it will provide a real service to both operators and the supply chain.”
