Top Story – Carousel Cafe

A rainbow of shakes…

The Carousel Cafe first opened its doors in 2010 in the market town of Kings Lynn, Norfolk. As the business developed the owner; Gary Kerr, wanted to add a range of burgers and milkshakes to the already successful offer. At first they started out making their shakes by blending milk with a powdered base mix. Which, over time, became very labour intensive and the product which they were producing wasn’t that far from that which could be produced at home.

They needed to find something different…

Taylor 430 with FlavorBurst

Gary began looking in to the traditional ‘American Style’ thick shake market and found Taylor UK. Following a meeting and well informed conversation with their local sales manager, the decision was made that the Taylor 430 shake machine would be the perfectly sized machine for their business. This was combined with the FlavorBurst™ system to provide the facility to serve up to nine different flavours at the push of a button.

The Taylor 430 has a small footprint on the counter, but it delivers a high output for its size; producing up to 120, 12oz shakes every hour in eight different flavours with the FlavorBurst. With a cleaning interval of three days which only takes half an hour to complete, the 430 reduces labour requirements and decreases customer waiting times whilst producing a high quality shake which customers cannot replicate at home.

Gary commented; “Ever since our first introduction to Taylor UK, I’ve been hugely impressed by the service which we’ve received. When it comes to knowledge of the industry and of Taylor equipment, our dedicated sales manager is second to none. The same can be said about the technical assistanceTop Story – Carousel Cafe we’ve received, from the head office call centre who talk us through any queries which we’ve had over the phone or arrange an engineer if necessary.”

Gary added; “I know that I can always rely on the companies experts [Taylor UK] to provide expert knowledge ensuring that we always have the capability of serving milkshakes in the cafe at all times. It is for this reason that I wouldn’t have any hesitation to recommend Taylor UK to anybody looking to introduce a thick shake offering to their business.”
