Honey Bee Coffee Café & Take-away, Port TalbotClient: Adrian Bowen
The owner, Adrian Bowen, had a unique opportunity to transform a central isle within Aberafan Shopping Centre into a standalone café facility. The additional café would be located at the opposite end of the shopping centre to an existing café facility, thereby offering a choice of refreshments throughout the centre.
RACS provided advice on the layout for the new café, prepared a design and specification of catering equipment that would achieve Adrian’s objectives for this limited size of kitchen, yet could still offer flexibility of menu choices for breakfasts, lunches and beverages. The heart of the kitchen was a double stacked Rational “Self-Cooking Centre” Combination Oven with an Ultra-Vent Hood fitted over them to eliminate cooking odours and steam within the shopping mall. Working in harmony with the ovens are displays for hot and cold menu choices, and the usual preparation and dishwashing facilities you would expect within this environment.
