Serving up a slice of great tasting delivery
PizzaExpress wanted …
Piz’za the action
PizzaExpress saw demand for collection and delivery skyrocket during the pandemic and wanted to maximise ongoing sales potential.
Embracing these sales models has created both opportunities and challenges for the business with new peak service times driven by changes in consumer behaviour.
PizzaExpress needed to overhaul its existing hot-holding solution to improve capacity in-store and quality on the doorstep. We began by introducing our high capacity hot-holding unit, Flexeserve Hub to a London store – having tailored it to PizzaExpress’s needs.
“Flexeserve Hub’s superior hot-holding capacity and perfect integration with their operations provided enhanced efficiencies.”
Dirk Wissmann, Operational Support & Development Manager
Our culinary, technical and implementation experts helped PizzaExpress embrace true hot-holding smoothly, efficiently and profitably – delivering on their target objectives.
We specified Flexeserve Hub, which delivers unmatched capacity within a small footprint. With our unrivalled hot air recirculation technology, this unit provides a consistent temperature, perfect for hot-holding challenging products such as pizza and crispy sides.
We delivered hot-holding results far exceeding PizzaExpress’s aspirations. Through collaboration, our culinary team reviewed the kitchen’s delivery process to ensure it was suited to hot-holding, maximised team efficiencies and realised Flexeserve Hub’s full potential.
To make starters and sides instantly available for any order, we advised on cooking and hot-holding in larger batches. Our implementation expert also replicated their entire service model and simulated the thermal conditions of delivery to the customer – to prove concept before integration.
Our highly efficient hot air recirculation technology maintains the temperature and just-cooked quality of their pizzas and side orders. This allows the kitchen team to increase output, optimising their order fulfilment rate and enhancing customer satisfaction.
