Summer Essentials for Mobile/Outdoor Caterers
Whether you’re hitting the festival circuit in your food van or you have a string of summer weddings to cater for, make sure you’ve got these summer catering equipment essentials to keep your customers happy.
1. Ice Maker
A very valuable piece of equipment during summer! Cold drinks attract customers when the weather is hot, so it’s important to invest in an ice-maker that can keep up with demand. If you’re going to be making an array of summer cocktails at your event, it may be worth investing in an ice crusher, perfect for creating refreshing mojitos, daiquiris, mint juleps, or slush-type drinks.
- D.C DC100-60A Self Contained Ice Machine – produces solid cubes of crystalline ice that cool quickly and melt slowly.
- Hoshizaki C-105 Ice Crusher – Small enough to place on bars or counter tops.
Who doesn’t love grilled food during summertime? There’s so much you can do with a grill – meat, fish, vegetables – everything just tastes so much better cooked over a smokey grill! Invest in a grill that allows you to cater for your crowd no matter where you are, Lincat have some great options.
- Lincat grills – a great range of electric, natural gas and propane grills
3. Pizza Oven
Pizza is such a versatile food that’s quick and easy to make. Different toppings allow you to make this firm festival favourite your own, and not needing a knife and fork to tuck in makes pizza the perfect on-the-go food for serving at outdoor events.
If your menu is solely dedicated to pizza or you expect it to be a popular item, we highly recommend a double oven to save on waiting time!
- Lincat Double Electric Pizza Oven – high powered single piece firebrick based oven for crisp base cooking is perfect for deep pan, thin crust, fresh dough, part baked or frozen pizzas.
- Lincat Electric Pizza Oven LPO – ideal for small takeaways, cafes or snack bars. Recommended for thin crust pizzas only.
4. Juice dispenser
Juice bar vans have been cashing in since the ‘juicing’ craze recently hit the UK. It’s showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon, so start experimenting with fruity combinations and buy in the right equipment to keep your creations smooth and cool!
- Interlevin LJD3 Milk/Juice Dispensers – Suitable for milk or juice containing fruit pulp. 1x, 2x or 3x 12lt models available
The quality of your food, its freshness, and its shelf life each have a direct impact on the success of your catering business, so you need to have a commercial fridge that can keep up with lots of customers and summer heat.
- Tefcold Under Counter Fridges – provides reliable refrigeration whilst saving space.
