Florigo’s Filterlogic system has reduced overheads significantly for Hi Tide in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
Choosing a range is all about personal choice. For some it’s about reliability, while for others it’s all about how the range looks. For Alan and Lana Hawley at Hi Tide in Aylesbury, it was all about the filtration.
“We had an old range with a separate filtration unit and, whilst we were looking for a new range, we had heard about Florigo’s Filterlogic system and liked the idea that everything was in one,” Alan explained. “With our old range we had to wait until the end of the night to filter the oil, so to be able to filter whilst we’re busy really appealed to us.”
A year on from when the range has been installed and in Alan’s words he’s “reaping the benefits now”. We’re saving not just time, but money as well, especially with the high efficiency pans. Our gas bills have been drastically cut from £700 a month to just over £250. My gas costs have been cut twice and we’re also making significant savings on the amount of oil we buy. For example, we used to get through 16-20 blocks a week with the old range and now we’re on 10-12 blocks, sometimes even less!”
The takeaway’s customers have also noticed a difference with a marked reduction in waiting time. “Customers aren’t having to waiting as long as they used to and we definitely have more customers coming back,” adds Alan. “I’ve kept the same staff levels, although I could have actually got away with less people. But this way, customers don’t have to wait as long.
“Overall, I’m really happy. Everything’s hunky-dory!”
