Whether in a college and university dining hall or a K-12 school cafeteria, students will inevitably spend a lot of time – and money – inside school foodservice operations. In some cases, multiple meals per day will be consumed, as well as cramming for tests. It’s important for directors to ensure a fantastic dining experience, and serving equipment can play a big role.
Why? There are many reasons. Food visibility. Attractive aesthetics. Durability that won’t lead to an interruption of service. Easy cleaning and maintenance to ensure food safety. And more. In this blog, we’re going to show you why Multiteria’s Essence line is exactly the type of solution that can deliver these benefits.
What’s the Multiteria Essence difference?
First, quality construction: Multiteria Essence utilizes 100% stainless steel tubular construction that provides superior strength and rigidity. Tubular construction is also made from sanitary materials and allows counters to move from point A to point B without compromising their physical integrity. In addition, removable shelving allows for easier cleaning and maintenance, which is a big plus in the labor-starved foodservice industry, and there’s also a lifetime warranty on the core and shell of each and every unit.
Second, Multiteria Essence is fully customizable in a wide range of ways. Essence is designed to any shape, size, or configuration to maximize the use of space. Easily removable panels allow for different designs for different concepts, making it easy to shift from breakfast in the morning to lunch in the afternoon if those two service types are completely different. Counters are designed for disassembly, mobility, and reassembly in other areas using a tight-link locking system that merges two or more units together providing the ultimate in customized service.
CHANGE YOUR LOOK: Essence includes an extensive list of options and exterior finishes, as well as the ability to accommodate Hatco drop-ins as a standard add-on. Considering a different manufacturer? We can work with other brands, as well.
THE POINT-OF-SALE: Cashier counters offer a durable, customizable surface with an easy ability to transport and customize, and millwork panels that can match any décor. Our interlocking mechanism eliminates gaps and spaces and makes for a seamless series of cafeteria surfaces.
COLD COUNTERS: Essence cold counters are constructed with a durable, welded, stainless steel frame while including an interlocking mechanism system that eliminates the vertical and horizontal gaps that can exist with serving equipment. Optional food shields mount into the vertical framework for strength and durability.
HOT COUNTERS: Made with a durable, welded steel tubular frame, hot counters also include the tight link system like other Essence solutions. Both dry and moist heat wells include drainage, and millwork panels can match or complement any aesthetic. Like cold counters, food shields are durable and dependable because of their vertical design.
OTHER ESSENCE SOLUTIONS: Essence is also capable of delivering lock-and-load open-top counters, as well as modular utility and beverage counters created with the same design elements. Make your C&U and K12 foodservice easier with Essence.
Foodservice directors in our schools and on our campuses have a full range of challenges to deal with each and every day. We've designed Essence with those challenges in mind, and we invite you to explore the power of these units today.
