Oldrids Department Store in Boston, Lincolnshire, has a long and illustrious heritage stretching back to 1804 – with a business relationship spanning half a century, the arrival of a new Hobart warewashing machine at the family-owned store continues yet another fine tradition.
The latest piece of state-of-the-art warewashing kit to be installed is a Hobart CN Rack Type machine and tabling unit – the most space efficient rack conveyor dishwasher which delivers an outstanding performance, class-leading economy and low running costs. The Hobart warewasher now has pride of place in the kitchen of the store’s 230-cover restaurant and staff canteen and is operational from 9:00 in the morning until around 4:30 in the afternoon. During the average working day, it has pots going through it being thoroughly cleaned for around 3½ hours.
Steve Goulder, Technical Services Manager at Oldrids remembers when he first arrived at the town’s famous store 25 years ago, one of his first tasks was to replace the Hobart dishwasher which was a “minimum of 20 years old, even then”.
More recently, he had to choose a new warewasher for Oldrids’ busy kitchen and once again went for a Hobart model after considering the merits of all competitor brands. He said: “I was looking for a machine that was low energy and low maintenance, reliable and quiet and had a low heat output to the working environment, but it also needed to be easy to use and offer a great end result. I chose Hobart because it is a known entity with a great reputation and competitively priced against other quality manufacturers”.
