The Easter break is fast approaching … are you ready?

21st March 2022

Easter is historically one of the most significant events in the Hospitality annual calendar as consumers get set to meet friends and family and shake off those winter blues.  It’s big business that is purported to be worth some £4billion in eating out, food, and gifts.

However, uncertainty is never far from all our doors as we take in the tragic events being witnessed in Eastern Europe alongside inflationary pressures that have not been seen for more than three decades.  Our customers are indicating that their menus may shrink (whilst prices go up), in order to accommodate the increased level of footfall over these exceptionally busy periods.

Easter is a little later this year, but it will still be here before we know it and there are lots of advantages in this mid-month position for hospitality operators.  The spring evenings will be lighter with summer just around the corner, and the season will be well and truly underway with May Bank Holiday following soon after.

And then – we all head into the Jubilee Celebrations which everyone will be celebrating across the nation and promise to be a real boost to Hospitality.

Prior to this peak, establishments will want to look ahead and be sure they are prepared for the increased pressure.  As part of that, now is the time to take some simple steps to ensure that your warewasher (which is an essential part of your equipment), can cope with the demand, as no matter how busy your establishment is, every customer expects a clean plate and glass.

It’s a good time to service your machine

There’s never a better time to service your machine and give it a good clean ahead of the Easter period. For help and advice on servicing please complete our online form or call our service number on 01908 359059.

Order early to avoid disappointment …

If you are looking to upgrade your warewasher ready for the year ahead, it’s a good idea to order early to ensure delivery ahead of the long Bank Holiday Easter weekend.  Here at Classeq, our machines are currently dispatched five days following receipt of a confirmed order, a lead time we’re very proud of, but we’d still advise to get your order in as soon as possible.

A ‘made in Britain’ product …

All our warewashers are made in Britain at our Staffordshire factory which means no import delays and no inflated prices to take account of the new import regulations and duties resulting from Brexit.  It also means that we are ready to go with any accessories, equipment and spare parts you might need, as and when you might need them.
