Presenting … Connect by Flexeserve
HostMilano marks the official launch of Connect by Flexeserve! The new cloud-based service enables operators to maximize the benefits of true hot-holding and achieve total operational efficiency across entire estates.
With the ability to remotely access and automate your hot-holding units, Connect allows you to set shelf temperatures, schedule dayparts and track product shelf-life – maximizing sustainability, food quality and profitability. Highly compatible, it can also be integrated with other cloud-based services for greater efficiency.
Dirk continued: “We have real-world experience of foodservice challenges and operator pain points. The first of its kind, Connect is changing the way that operators view their hot food programs.
“With live data reporting and the ability to refine hot food programs remotely, our latest innovation helps you reduce energy usage, eliminate food waste and continually advance how you make and serve hot food.”
3 new ways to sell even more and waste even less
Flexeserve will be showcasing true hot-holding at HostMilano with its latest heated display, Flexeserve Zone Xtra. Ideal for grab and go, Xtra enables operators to display 60% more incredible hot food and enhance its visibility with premium accessories – all within the same footprint and power supply as the Flexeserve Zone 2 Tier Countertop.
With Xtra’s two multi-temp zones, capable of hot-holding products with different temperature requirements in the same unit, operators can achieve new levels of energy efficiency, selling more while cooking less often with a wider range of products across all dayparts, from breakfast sandwiches and warm bakery to sweet treats, pizza and fries.
At the show will also be Flexeserve’s brand-new Flexeserve Zone 4 Tier Rear Feed, providing easy restocking directly from back-of-house. Helping busy store teams reach new levels of efficiency, the new 4 Tier model is perfect for supermarket rotisseries, breakfast items, lunch-on-the-go and more.
Providing high capacity, under the counter, the all-new Flexeserve Hub Undercounter is also coming to HostMilano, to support kitchens with operational efficiencies at its core. Flexeserve Hub is the only unit that can hot-hold batch-cooked ingredients, complete dishes and whole packaged food orders for unrivaled hold times, versatility and energy efficiency.
