Our Food Cubes are really taking off – interest is soaring, and we have been receiving media coverage in publications such as Cost Sector Catering. Following the huge success of our Food Cube at Oasis Academy in Brightstowe, we have been receiving a huge number of enquiries and are currently working with several schools to discuss their requirements and put designs together.
The Food Cube, an innovative catering concept from PKL, was developed in partnership with BAM FM, who look after facilities in over 30 schools. The Food Cube provides an additional serving area at school lunch and break times, and can also be used as a tuck shop facility. By reducing queuing and serving times, it encourages pupils to stay on site at lunchtime and helps prevent them leaving site to buy unhealthier alternatives elsewhere. Keeping lunchtime spend on site also increases profits and enables a wider range of food to be served.
At Oasis Academy, the Food Cube has been very popular with pupils, and has led to an increase in the uptake of school meals as well as easing lunchtime congestion in the existing serving areas.
