Starting in Fish & Chips
Time for a refurbishment…
The previous owners of the Cupar establishment had purchased a new 3 pan frying range in 1982. When Paul took over, he used the same frying range from 1989, and had been using that same range right up until the refurbishment in 2020! Years of experience using old-style frying ranges have benefitted Paul as he knows exactly how to work a range and maximise the output. Paul considered doing a refurbishment for a few years then COVID-19 ended up providing an opportunity to do this. Paul was able to arrange the refurbishment without too much disruption to the business, as customers were not entering the premises at this point anyway. Paul wanted to invest in The Central Café to ensure it is a nice, welcoming place for his customers to be, giving them confidence in him and his business. His refurbishment included changes that are now more pleasing to the eye, and of course, a brand-new frying range.
Choosing a frying range
When it came to choosing a new frying range, Paul considered all his options with the different manufacturers within the market. In the end, Paul chose to go with Edge for a few reasons. Paul talked about how he appreciated the Edge pitch, he wanted a High-Efficiency range that does what it says on the tin. Edge ticked all the boxes and comes with Halo Lighting and Built-in Filtration as standard! Another reason Paul wanted to choose us was for Florigo’s reputation. By reading and watching customer testimonials from genuine people, it gave him confidence in doing business with us. Paul sat with Robert Furey (Florigo MD) to discuss what he wanted to get out of his range. He decided on a 2-pan Edge instead of replacing it with 3 pans like his current British range. This is because the Edge has High-Efficiency pans with a far superior recovery time allowing Paul to double his output despite being a pan down! As well as the savings in energy, the Dutch High-Efficiency technology provides many benefits to his business. Since his range installation, Paul has appreciated the quick, straightforward support from the Florigo Service Team. We were able to learn a lot from our first Edge install that we can use to continue improving for future Edge customers.
