Fuller’s wanted to create a flexible space in which colleagues were happy to recharge their batteries with a hearty breakfast or light lunch, or to simply conduct informal meetings over coffee. Fuller’s new caterer, CH & Co., chose Space to refurbish the restaurant: “We wanted to completely re-engineer the food offer at Fuller’s and having worked with Space in the past we knew they were the right partner to make it a reality in a very short space of time,” explains Steve Wishart, operations manager, CH & Co.
Space used its state of the art 3D design technology to give the servery and dining area a whole new layout with a modern yet rustic look. They had just two weeks to complete the entire installation.
The large Storer servery counter, with its light coloured granite top means that each fresh offer now flows into the next, leading the customer through the choices of the day. The all-in-one counter incorporates a separate cold salad well and deli unit, as well as a heated section for the homemade hot dishes. A Williams multi-deck refrigerated display unit now stores a range of cold drinks and freshly made ‘grab and go’ items, while a self serve hot beverage section features a high quality Black and White coffee machine. Finally, Space fitted a hard wearing Karndean timber effect strip floor.
The range of contemporary oak furniture, also supplied by Space, was configured so that it can be easily re-arranged. Both the tables and benches were bespoke; specially polished to Fuller’s exact requirements, while additional chunky chairs, imported by Space directly from Italy, complete the look.
“Everyone here is delighted with our new restaurant,” comments Fran Howell, group purchasing manager, Fuller’s Brewery. “Space gave us a design that works on so many different levels. It provides our shift workers with exactly what they need during a busy delivery run, while accommodating our office based staff too. There are some really high class options out on the high street; now we have our own quality offer that would give any of them a run for their money.”
