Sprint Group gets taste of high society with club project

Midlands catering equipment specialist Sprint Group joined the A list with an installation project at a legendary members club in London’s Mayfair.   

The Worcestershire-based company fitted four bespoke commercial kitchens at the new Annabel’s, spanning the Main House Grade One listed building in Berkeley Square and Hays Mews building from basement to third floor and including a preparation and laboratory area in the annexed vaulted cellars in Hays Mews.    

Among the stand-out features are cooksuites built to include specific appliances for the client’s varied requirements, ten purpose built cold and freezer rooms, bespoke ventilation canopies, pizza and proving ovens and a dedicated pastry kitchen.

Sprint Group project manager Mark Chillingworth said: “This was one of the most challenging and ultimately rewarding projects I’ve ever been involved with. The whole team is delighted with the result, which illustrates our consistently high levels of expertise and customer service.

“During the project, we liaised closely with executive chef Julien Jouhannaud, the site project team and subcontractors to ensure that all requirements and programmed installation dates were kept to.”

The delivery and installation of the third floor kitchen involved a complicated hoist lift from ground level before the retractable glass roof covering the dining area was installed.

Paul Jenkins, purchasing director of Caprice Holdings, said: “We put our faith in Sprint to deliver this landmark project and they have exceeded our expectations. They have delivered superbly designed kitchens on time and of the highest quality. The Sprint team are knowledgeable, incredibly supportive and a pleasure to work with. We’d be delighted to work with them again in future.”

Based in Pershore, Sprint Group is one of the UK’s leading catering and refrigeration equipment suppliers, serving a range of partners from the hottest new restaurants to High Street names with project design, equipment sales and maintenance support.

The press release has been included in Catering Insight magazine’s print and online editions and on the Foodservice Equipment Journal website.
