June 29th 2011 - Once again, a Stannah Microlift is helping to deliver Carluccio’s famed ‘mof-mof’ Italian cuisine in a recently opened outlet in Campden Hill Road in the chic London district of Kensington.
‘Mof-mof’ means ‘minimum of fuss-maximum of flavour’ for those unacquainted with the quirky acronyms of Commendatore Antonio Carluccio OBE, the eponymous masterchef behind this internationally acclaimed series of caffès, restaurants and food shops.
This latest example of many Carluccio’s mushrooming throughout the UK relies upon a Stannah Microlift 50A service lift for the efficient ferrying of food and dining-ware between the basement kitchen and ground-floor restaurant. Finished in satin stainless steel with rise-and-fall shutters, the 2-shelf lift ensures that meals are served quickly and efficiently to the expected taste and temperature, and to the delight of the many patrons.
With a 7-year track record in delivering goods lifts for Carluccio’s, Stannah is completely au fait with their client’s requirements and continues to be lift provider of choice with over twenty installations to its credit. This pedigree and professionalism was also recognised by Chris Farthing, MD of leading design and shop-fitting contractors, Ecsec, the company responsible for negotiating the installation of the Microlift 50A, dealing with the Stannah team on a daily basis:
“With a reputation to maintain for high-quality design and shop-fitting, we were delighted with Stannah’s service from start to finish. Professional, helpful and efficient from initial enquiry and consultation through to technical support, installation and commissioning, it is easy to see why Carluccio’s continues to specify Stannah lifts.”
The Stannah Microlift is Europe's largest selling range of service lifts and everyone’s answer to moving goods – from a bottle of fine wine to machinery parts. Ideal for the repeated movement of small loads in a range of businesses, these lifts are often referred to as ‘dumbwaiters’, food lifts or small service lifts because of the invaluable assistance they bring to a busy catering environment.
The Microlift 50A is serviced by the Crayford branch of Stannah Lift Services, a nationwide network providing 24 hour, 365 days a year support. This covers service, repair, modernisation and refurbishment of all types of lifts, stairlifts, escalators and moving walkways – not only those from the Stannah product range, but also other lift manufacturers’ equipment.
