Commercial catering equipment is vital to the smooth running of many businesses in Herts and the surrounding areas. From Michelin-starred restaurants to small cafés, catering equipment forms the backbone of operations. Lose use of just one piece of equipment, and the financial losses can be huge and often crippling.
At PHS Engineers, we specialise in repairing commercial catering equipment, usually attending emergencies within two hours and successfully fixing 9/10 breakdowns on the spot, without the need for further visits. The result? Your business is back up and running in no time, costing you as little as possible in lost revenue.
If you operate any catering business in Hertfordshire, we’d love to hear from you. Just one call, and you’ll add another layer of protection to your business.
At PHS, our engineers are trained to the highest standards, ensuring they exceed expectations when attending your premises. This training encompasses knowledge of all major catering equipment providers, including, but not limited to:
Our team of engineers also has the knowledge and skill to fix problems with equipment from all other catering equipment companies. Essentially, if you have a breakdown in your commercial kitchen, we’re confident one of our engineers can provide the fix you need.
We have the experience and expertise to repair almost everything you’d commonly find in a commercial kitchen, including:
Please be assured that our engineers are appropriately qualified and permitted to work with gas appliances. We also have plumbers available to assist with any plumbing problems in your kitchen or venue, such as leaking pipes. Our emergency plumbers are available 24 hours a day.
Even if you service your catering equipment regularly, breakdowns can still occasionally happen. That’s why it’s essential to have a company working alongside you willing to respond to equipment breakdowns quickly – such as PHS.
We’ll aim to be at your venue within two hours of being called and will then attempt to fix the breakdown straight away – something we’re able to do 90% of the time. If we can’t fix an appliance immediately, we’ll get hold of any required parts quickly and return to fit them as a matter of urgency.
Our emergency catering repairs service is available to venues in Herts 24 hours a day. So, whether you’re a café serving breakfast at 6 am or a late-night venue offering snacks to night-time revellers, you can be sure you’re covered if a vital appliance breaks down.
As a business owner, you need to know your equipment is reliable, so you can confidently go about your work without the fear of any vital appliance breaking down. The best way to gain this peace of mind is via planned preventative maintenance (PPM).
PPM is essentially the process of regularly servicing vital aspects of your kitchen, such as commercial ovens and extraction fans. We attend your premises a pre-determined number of times per year and fully service agreed on appliances. This ensures most problems are caught early, and you don’t suffer an expensive breakdown later.
It’s also important to remember that regular maintenance is often a proviso of insurance, plus it ensures your business is as safe as possible for customers and staff. You’ll also find that regularly serviced appliances last longer, bringing down the costs of equipment replacement.
We recommend that you have your commercial kitchen equipment serviced at least every 6 months. This ensures that it remains in the best possible condition and that any issues are identified before they become problems that could lead to disruption for your business.
Maintaining catering equipment is not just a question of keeping it clean, although this is important. You also should organise regular inspections of the equipment by knowledgeable engineers who will ensure that everything is in working order and proactively deal with any problems before they start affecting your operations.
Routine maintenance of commercial catering equipment is not just important to ensure that the machines work as they should but to also save money in the long term. Keeping everything working smoothly and dealing with small faults when they first arise reduces the risk of serious breakdowns later on. You’ll enjoy better food quality, your staff will enjoy a more efficient and safer working environment, and your equipment will enjoy an extended life span.
