Butchies is a fun and bustling fried buttermilk chicken shop that strives to recreate the energy and community of the street food and music festival scene in all five of its London locations.
Its aim is to bring amazing moments and feelings to its customers’ day – something it achieves by serving “the best damn fried buttermilk chicken” in the world. This is in part thanks to the quality of ingredients used, including higher welfare Red Tractor accredited birds, as well as equipment solutions supplied by Jestic Express.
These include Henny Penny pressure fryers for frying chicken, open fryers for chips and humidified heated holding cabinets alongside the Ayrking breading station – used to prepare the buttermilk coating – and an Antunes vertical contact toaster for burger buns.
Since using these solutions, Butchies has reached a whole new level in terms of the quality of the food it serves, with operation manager Ilker Sahinturk explaining: “Three years ago we had our very first Henny Penny equipment installed and immediately saw an improvement to the quality of our fried chicken and chips. In addition, the fryers also helped to reduce some of the workload of the crew on a daily basis.
“In order to ease workload further, we invested in Ayrking breading stations, Antunes vertical contact toasters and Henny Penny heated holding cabinets. Together, these solutions allow the crew to seamlessly prepare, create and serve our menu of items consistently and easily, in a more relaxed manner.”
On a mission to extend oil life, Butchies also started using Henny Penny Prime Filter Powder. “It’s an amazing solution which has transformed our businesses, allowing us to extend oil life by as much as double, thus allowing us to achieve much healthier profit margins,” adds Ilker.
Over the past three years, Jestic Express has worked closely with Butchies to ensure all of its requirements are achieved, if not surpassed, as Ilker summarises: “Jestic Express provides an incredibly reliable service and often goes above and beyond to help. We are thankful of the partnership we have built together and look forward to a healthy future together.”
