Boneyard, Leicester - A New Enterprise

It’s always exciting when a new restaurant opens – the innovation of coming up with a theme and branding, thinking up the perfect name and creating a menu that reflects the style of the business, all the way down to locating the right premises and choosing the perfect equipment. This was the exact position that co-owners Himal Patel and David Martin experienced when embarking on their new venture in 2016.

Having a clear idea of the direction they wanted their Asian/American fusion street food restaurant to take, they were well prepared. When it came to kitting out the kitchen and bar areas, they approached FFD to help with the specification and supply of all of the catering and refrigeration equipment that they needed to produce the quality food and drink that would reflect the core ethos of the business.

Looking for a complete set-up including walk-in chillers and freezers, ventilation, oven ranges, grills, griddles and fryers right through to glasswashers, ice machines and bottle coolers, it was vital that they invest in the right equipment for the job. Boneyard LED lighting

Working across two of our sites - FFD specialising in commercial refrigeration and 247 Catering Supplies excelling in commercial catering equipment - our team of experts were in the perfect position to work closely with Himal and David to compile their order, including everything they needed to begin their journey.

From assisting in choosing the best equipment for their needs and ensuring that supply and delivery went smoothly through to aftercare and support, FFD were there every step of the way, putting Boneyard in prime position to produce the quality food and drink they envisioned for their new business.

The team at Boneyard were thrilled with the results. Himal said “FFD helped us through every step of the process from choosing the right equipment to answering any questions we had once we had received delivery. We thought we knew exactly what we needed but FFD listened to our vision and suggested a few alterations to our order that would be better suited – suggestions which ultimately enhanced our business and allowed us to give our customers an even better level of quality and service”

It wasn’t only the advice that FFD provided that hit the mark. “Thanks to FFD we were able to kit out our kitchen and bar with high quality equipment without blowing the budget” he said regarding their purchases.

After opening, Boneyard customers were quick to post their reviews, acclaiming the ‘great atmosphere and delicious food’. Thanks to careful planning and collaboration, Boneyard were able to fulfil their hopes and aspirations for the business.
