After 10 years in the catering industry, we had had enough of using inferior catering equipment. We engaged Catering Innovation Agency Ireland to redesign, supply and install a new kitchen. They arranged a temporary kitchen and food offering for the couple of days while they were re-modelling our kitchen. They designed and implemented a kitchen which has saved us over €400 a month in electricity bills and has all but eliminated our gas bill. In addition our kitchen is now cooler and our catering staff have a far superior kitchen to work in. We also implemented a Palux pressure steamer which guarantees freshly cooked vegetables almost instantaneously which prevents food wastage and provides our clients with freshly cooked veg on demand.
I would recommend CIA Ireland to any catering professional who wishes to streamline their operation and reduce costs.
We approached the development of our restaurant with very specific requirements, a kitchen that could produce food to the highest standards available anywhere in the country and one that chefs would be proud to say they worked in. The Catering Innovation Agency helped us achieve these goals, from initial design to final fitting, they worked alongside our team and we found their approach to be a breath of fresh air.
Any development can be stressful but the team at Catering Innovation Agency provide great support , they have suggestions based on experience and changes to plans are dealt with minimal fuss.
I would not hesitate in choosing Catering Innovation Agency again.
I have used CIA Ireland to supply and maintain Merrychef Catering Equipment in all 13 of my premises. CIA Ireland are the Merrychef experts.
CIA installed a Palux kitchen for us in 2008. We have had zero service calls in the full kitchen since installation. Cannot recommend Palux or CIA Ireland highly enough.
Hickeys Bakery was recognised as the best coffee shop in Ireland 2012 by the Irish Times. If there were awards for catering equipment CIA Ireland would win every year.
Having worked with Catering Innovation Agency on the development of our first venture in Portlaoise, O’Gormans of Kilminchy, I had no hesitation in seeking their expertise for the development of our latest venture, The Bog Road.

Careful and comprehensive planning with Seamus Marnane and Enda ODonoghue from the Catering Innovation agency ltd resulted in a bespoke Palux Kitchen.
The benefits of palux energy saving salamanders was noted and two were installed in the main kitchen and one in the breakfast servery. Palux Pan M ensure stress free banquet preparation while the Palux touch and steam ovens are everyday work horses in a hotel synonymous with the racing Industry
The quality of the Palux kitchen will see the food service operation meets the challenges that lie ahead for the Nallen family at Hotel Minella .
Depths of preparation surface are bespoke up to 800 mm ensuring lots of room and less walking for staff.
Energy efficient salamanders ensure speedy service while a Palux pressure steamer means a stream of fresh vegetables is always to hand for that unexpected coach tour.
