Orchard Cafe, Shrewsbury

Project: Orchard Cafe, Shrewsbury

Builder: Morris Homes

Value: Small Project

End date: March 2017

C&C Catering Equipment Ltd is pleased to share one of its latest completed projects at Orchard Cafe in Shrewsbury. The venue, adjacent to Shrewsbury’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, required professional catering facilities to serve a growing number of visitors to the area, and C&C were pleased to be involved in the prestigious and historical scheme.

The cafe area was carefully designed to make use of the space inside the listed building, and included brands such as Britannia, Rational, Winterhalter, Falcon, Bravilor, EAIS racking, Mechline, Star Espresso Machines and IMC.

Challenges along the way included various site restrictions due to the nature of the historical venue, with items such as a traditionally ducted canopy being exchanged for a refresh hood to recirculate the air through a bank of filters before dispersing back into the kitchen. Additionally, the uneven ground in the Grade II listed building made for a difficult task when it came to carrying through the equipment, however this was overcome with careful planning and organisation.

Project Manager Andy Pace commented, “The Orchard Cafe scheme was great to work on due to the historical importance of the location. We’re pleased to have provided professional catering facilities for the venue’s many visitors, and enjoyed delivering the project at this impressive building.”
