HOW CAN BARS AND RESTAURANTS BENEFIT FROM CONTAINER STORAGE?

Serving food and drinks to large crowds requires a lot of organisation! Bars, restaurants and caterers can't afford to run out of staple items or compromise the quality of their supplies. To do this effectively, it's often mandatory to have access to ample cold storage on-site. Refrigerated containers are a great solution to this problem; their flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and mobility allow businesses to be agile and allows businesses to quickly adapt to changing conditions.

Here is some food for thought for all restaurant owners who are seeking a more sustainable storage solution to help them grow their business:

Why bars and restaurants need cold storage?

Restaurants, Caterers and Food Manufacturers all need to keep various raw ingredients at precise temperatures to extend their shelf life. Since the demand in these establishments can be challenging to predict, it’s prudent to keep a stock of supplies at hand. It’s also often cheaper to buy supplies in bulk and keep them on-site, and temperature-controlled storage facilities can be a precondition for this approach.

In some cases, businesses might need additional cold storage temporarily, so it doesn’t make sense to construct traditional warehouses just for this purpose. Since container-based storage can meet a significant number of requirements for companies in this sector, this solution is increasingly being used as both short-term and long-term facilities.

How can refrigerated containers benefit my business?

Refrigerated containers can act as primary or secondary storage for bars, pubs, and restaurants of any size, especially those with locations that don’t allow for an expansion of brick-and-mortar storage. They can safely store the various goods that these establishments use daily, from dairy and meat to fresh fruit. In addition, containers can either sit alongside a building or stand independently.

Should I buy or rent refrigerated containers?

The answer to this question depends on many different factors, including your business profile and your budget. However, many businesses find it advantageous to lease containers on flexible terms, as this allows them to manage peaks and declines in demand owing to seasonal and economic factors.

I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.

Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.

In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.

We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
