When you think of foodservice in schools, you might begin to feel stressed and think of all the unpredictable chaos that can erupt at any given moment. A large crowd of hungry students wants their food and wants it as soon as possible. Your staff is rushing to make sure plenty of enough food is hot and ready to be served. That very same crowd of students is now beginning to feel impatient as the line has barely moved at the last minute…
It’s no secret that everyone on your staff understands the daily pressure associated with making the foodservice experience of students a successful one… on a daily basis! That’s why when it comes to school foodservice in your cafeteria, it’s a must to think and look down the line. You don’t want that large weight of stress bringing your staff down everyday, and you definitely don’t want those students to only have a couple minutes to eat before lunchtime is over. However, there’s a potential answer to this common issue experienced by many K-12 and C&U foodservice operations…
In school cafeterias and on college campuses across the country, durable and versatile food serving stations are often the solution to a more efficient and quicker experience for both your operation’s staff and students. Having a mighty food servery line can provide a return on investment that lasts well into the future, thus setting up your K-12 or C&U foodservice operation for long-term success. Now, you may be asking yourself, what aspects of durability and versatility should I consider?
Well, the lifetime value of a food serving station is enhanced the longer it lasts and the more it can be used in a variety of ways. Respectively, both the durable design and construction are critical to the longevity of a servery line. So, what makes it even more versatile? The ability to adjust the panels and change the aesthetics over time. Both of these factors will result in improved financial success and happiness of your staff and students. Let’s take a more detailed look at just how durable and versatile Multiteria’s line of Essence serving stations are…
The Serving Lines That Create Value Down the Line
Essence servery lines from Multiteria provides longevity with design flexibility and easy installation. This series is designed for use years down the road, as it was created specifically to cultivate lifetime value and return on investment. Here’s what makes Essence serving stations the top option for K-12 and C&U foodservice operations.
Essence’s durability comes from 100 percent stainless steel tubular construction with structures supporting its frame both vertically and horizontally. Its food shield post extends to the base of its frame for even more structural support. When it comes to its ability to support tray slides, its reinforced extended posts step up to the plate. In addition to Essence serving stations being strong and sanitary, its removable shelves make cleaning and maintenance easier for your staff. This allows critical time to be saved and used for more urgent tasks.
Essence servery lines come with a lifetime warranty on its core and shell, underscoring Multiteria’s commitment to the lifetime value of their foodservice serving solutions. Since today’s operations have less workers and require smart features to keep up with the demand and keep operators and customers safer, durability is a pivotal piece of the puzzle for a successful foodservice operation in a school.
Menus and concepts change over time, and that’s what Essence serving stations were designed to accommodate. Not only are units fully customizable to any shape, size, or configuration, front and end panels are easily removable and replaceable to make refurbishing or rebranding easy for operators. This makes changes in locations and changes in concepts possible and cost-effective without the need to purchase brand new servery lines.
Having a versatile serving station that is reliable on a daily basis is a need every school foodservice operation has. Especially one that is safe and versatile at the same time. Over the last few years, many people have become more concerned with their health. Consistent protection and covering of food from any unnecessary bacteria must be a given. We cannot physically see bacteria with our own eyes, and that’s why taking the correct safety measures is critical for a school foodservice operation.
The Essence line of serving stations offers your staff and students an ultra convertible food shield for added protection. The food guard has the ability to convert from operator service to self service with no set screws or knobs. In addition to this, its food shield is tubular and very robust that’s able to extend to the bottom of the entire frame, creating versatile convertibility in the process.
PORTABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY
We previously mentioned how versatile the Essence line of serving stations can be for a K-12 or C&U foodservice operation. If you thought being able to remove and customize front and end panels was impressive, you may enjoy the next part of this blog. Ever imagine what it’d be like if there was a way to connect multiple servery lines together for added efficiency? Then, Essence serving stations deliver again!
Thanks to its Tight Link Locking System, Essence serving stations are able to lock onto two or more units. This will create more options for not only your operator's staff, but students. Your staff will have more available spots to cook and serve food, while your students won’t have to dreadfully wait in line for an extended period of time to get a warm meal. It’s a win-win for both parties.
When you combine all of these elements, it becomes clearer to see the end of the long line that might be a burden to your operation’s staff and students. With Multieria’s Essence serving stations, endless possibilities await that include efficiency, versatility, safety, and durability.
