Catering Equipment Annual Maintenance
Although many hospitality venues are still finding their feet with Covid restrictions lifted, in order to keep up with what could be a record-breaking summer, CMS are advising restaurants, pubs and cafes to ensure their catering equipment has undergone its annual service and maintenance before the summer rush.
With the added pressure of staff shortages & supply chain issues mounting for many hospitality venues, ensuring your catering equipment is well maintained can minimise any unexpected breakdowns leading to loss in revenue.
Benefits of Annual Catering Equipment Maintenance
The benefits of carrying out annual planned preventative maintenance (also known as a PPM) on commercial catering equipment not only reduces the likelihood of breakdowns but can also save costs in reactive call outs, lowers energy consumption, keeps your business legally compliant and can increase the overall lifespan of the appliance.
