Hospitality and catering – full employees are satisfied employees
A coffee in the morning, a small snack while on a break, a bit of nourishment before the meeting: food and beverages are part and parcel of a good day at work. Small kitchens, catering equipment or buffet equipment allow you to save yourself large canteens, inconvenient kitchenettes and the staff’s two o’clock slump.
What does good hospitality at the company involve?
Many employees like to spend their lunch break away from the office or workshop. Heading out like this is important to clear the mind and for a change of scenery. However, employees would also often like something sweet or a beverage. If you don’t have room for a proper kitchenette, then you can even set up a meeting place in the workshop or production office which has been equipped with catering equipment such as small kitchens. The clever cupboards provide plenty of space for a coffee machine, hob and fridge, as well as enough storage space for everyone’s favourite cups and for a supply of coffee.
Mobile fridge caddies bring the kitchenette directly to the workplace. The ensure cold beverages, snacks and cutlery are always at hand – in the meeting room, in the visitors’ area, at trade fairs and events or anywhere else that refreshments are needed.
Where is the best place in the company to put catering equipment?
Besides the obvious requirements – such as access to power generators and a water connection – there are also process-related factors to consider when setting up catering equipment such as small kitchens.
- The hinged doors of kitchen units should be able to be opened fully at the site of installation without obscuring or obstructing walkways or other furnishing elements.
- Fumes when cooking food should be able to escape as easily as possible. In areas without windows or a supply of fresh air, install additional extractor hoods with filters.
- Choose an area for installation that provides space to sit, with bistro tables and chairs in close proximity.
- Label kitchen units as such to avoid any confusion with cupboards for equipment or tools.
