Growing new markets and nurturing fresh opportunities – Taylor UK exhibits at the Glee show at the NEC
Last month, Taylor UK exhibited at the Glee exhibition for the first time. Held annually at the NEC, Birmingham, Glee is ‘The Trade Show’ for garden centres, plant nurseries and farm shop operators. Providing additional services for their customers to differentiate themselves from the rest is just as important to the gardening world as it is to any other business; adding high quality catering facilities in the form of a café, coffee shop or self service restaurant is almost a ‘must’ for garden centres these days.
All of the Taylor UK product ranges would fit within the café and quick service restaurant environment. Especially our range of TurboChef rapid cook ovens; the perfect solution to add simple, fast hot food to any existing food service operation or an easy way of adding hot food to a new project without the need to install expensive extraction systems or full kitchens.
The Glee show was the perfect opportunity to showcase our new range of ISA cabinetry. We had the il Carrettino dei Gelati professional gelato and ice cream cabinet on display. Which was a major head turner and gave us the perfect opportunity to talk about the entire range of cabinet options; from individual, stand alone units to complete ISA shop fitting solutions…
Dave Bradford, Taylor UK’s senior sales manager said “The interest has been truly amazing. The number of independent garden centre operators who are looking to add soft ice cream to their food offer is staggering! This is definitely a growth area!”
We couldn’t go to an exhibition without handing out free ice cream. For the Glee show, we were kindly supported by The Jersey Dairies. Their premium soft serve ice cream mix was the perfect product to show off the Taylor range of soft serve ice cream machines.
