Our client turned to us to assist with the design of a new coffee shop at Swansea University. The brief was to keep the design simple yet fully functional. Simple but effective material choices of black granite worktops and treated Oak fascia panels gave the classic coffee shop feel, with the main focus on ensuring the layout and operational elements were on point.
Feedback from the client was excellent, and the University are extremely happy with the end result.

At certain venues, the food offering needs to be mobile. Sometimes this restricts the menu, however at Peterborough Arena this is not the case following the arrival of their new mobile food display carts.
The range of carts feature heated ceran plates, chilled salad wells, refrigerated multideck display units, coffee stations and till points. All units are customisable with magnetic fascias for catering branding surrounded by LED lighting, and magnetic menu board hangers on the overhead gantries.

MCF were asked to assist in a small domestic kitchen in a property in Whitby, and were happy to assist. Access was the main challenge in a very small kitchen located down a very tight alleyway, and the close proximity to seawater meant the material choice altered slightly from the standard 304 grade stainless steel. Marine grade 316 stainless steel was used instead to avoid rust in the future.
The client was extremely happy with the results, and the kitchen went on to feature in local and national magazines.

MCF have worked on the ever expanding Nando's portfolio nationally for years. We have designed and manufactured bespoke cookline suites, front of house co-ordinator counters and bespoke heated gantries, and back of house preparation and dishwash tabling.
Works on these sites does not stop there however. With the constant turnover of food and the high capacity output the Nando's create, the kitchen is constantly being monitored and refrubishments ugh a part of our business as the new schemes. The kitchens are often upgraded and altered to suit the high customer demand, and our engineers are often on site making the necessary additions to the custom equipment to keep the client at the top of their game.

On 16th March 2017, Her Majasty The Queen re-opened The National Army Museum in Chelsea, London, following its £23.75 million redevelopment. In 1960 the museum was originally opened by a Royal Charter and retrains its Royal connections with the Duke of Kent acting as patron.
MCF were thrilled to win the tender to supply the bespoke kitchen equipment and front of house custom servery counters with our distributor partner Gratte Brothers. The materials specified were a Corian worktop set into an 80x80mm thick staved solid oak surround. This provided us with the chance to show off not only our fabrication expertise but our shopfitting capabilities also.
Complete with bespoke drop in display units both heated and chilled, and a fully tiled fascia, the problem facing us was the expansion and contraction of the natural material once on site. Using the correct expansion gaps and bonding materials has made for a truly stunning counter in an exceptional environment. Photos do not do this project justice unfortunately.

Grafene is a unique British restaurant in the heart of Manchester, located at 55 King Street. Well known for its designer shops, this area of Manchester is seeing a huge increase in top end eateries.

For this theatre kitchen project at The Fish Hotel in Broadway, Merseyside Catering Fabrications were asked to provide a full solution to the extension of the kitchen. This incorporated not only the bespoke fabrication to house the cooking equipment supplied by our distributor partner, but also the glass and wooden enclosure of the theatre kitchen protruding into the dining space.
This was a wonderful project to be involved with, as we were able to ensure all elements were correct for installation on site. The kitchen included a bespoke cook suite to take counter top equipment - therefore easily changed as and when the hotels menu and capacity evolves - as well as a tailored triple tier gantry with heated quartz lights and ambient cool white LED lighting.
The fascia to the customer side was finished with a painted wood with tongue and groove detail. Inspection into the kitchen is 270 degrees thanks to the window system to all sides.

Eden House was a fantastic project to be involved with. Demonstrating MCF's ability to dip into the domestic market when the opportunity presents itself, our client Caterbox Group came to us with a very specific request.
Their client in the affluent area of Alderley Edge required an island kitchen worktop making out of a single sheet of thick stainless steel, with rounded 5mm thick downturns to all sides with the polished effect running linear to all sections. A laborious task, however our skilled engineers were happy to oblige. Champagne ice wells to the centre of the island give this worktop a real wow factor. Measuring almost 2.5 metres square, we are sure this island has proved host to some fantastic parties since its installation in 2015.
If you have a requirement for anything similar, or anything out of the ordinary for a domestic project, we would be happy to help. Please feel free to get in touch.

Hymers College opened in 1893 as a school for boys on the site of the old Botanic Gardens of Hull. The Reverend John Hymers, Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge and Rector of Brandesburton, a village 10 miles north of the city of Hull, left money in his will for a school to be built “for the training of intelligence in whatever social rank of life it may be found among the vast and varied population of the town and port of Hull”.
Over a century on and Hymers College is a co-educational independent day school for pupils aged 8 to 18.
In the new sixth form dining facility, MCF provided a simple yet effective servery counter featuring a white Corian worktop, wood effect laminated fascia panelling and a stainless steel kick plinth.

Coffee Cosmo is an independent coffee shop based in Blaby, Leicestershire. The first store of what they hope will be many, our distributor partner invited us into the discussions at the very start of their journey. This helped us develop a strong relationship with the end user, in turn providing the foundation to offer our experience and opinions with regard to design layout, materials and colour schemes.
The client had a very good idea of what they wanted from the very beginning, and had produced a full design brief before acquiring their site. Upon receiving the keys, we met on site to discuss designs and take the required dimensions and full site survey to ensure all of our electrical and waste connections worked well.
An ambitious menu which I am pleased to say works, offered challenges when fitting all equipment onto their 6 metre stainless steel back wall preparation area. Welded sinks, storage space, refrigeration, prep space, counter top appliances such as blunders, waffle machines, toasters, water boilers and coffee machines were all a consideration. All were fully incorporated to make what is one of the busiest and most consistent indipendant coffee shops we have either worked on or visited.
