Kitchen Refurbishment? No Problem!

pkl temporary kitchensPKL has supplied temporary catering facilities to hundreds of hotels in the UK over the last 20 years, enabling minimum disruption to their restaurant and banqueting services while refurbishment work is undertaken.

With the average renovation lasting around eight weeks, can your hotel afford to be without a foodservice operation for this amount of time while refurbishments take place?

Over the last two years, PKL has worked with many of the leading hospitality groups and developed three temporary kitchen packages designed specifically for use in hotels. These packages cater for hotels of different sizes and can be fully bespoke to suit exact end user requirements.

PKL understand how important your reputation is and our Portable Kitchens allow you to produce the kind of menu guests have come to expect from your establishment. We offer a complete turnkey solution, starting with a no obligation site survey and finishing with collection of equipment once the hire period has finished.

Contingency Planning from PKL

PKL were able to supply Keele University with an emergency kitchen hire after fire destroyed their main banqueting and catering facilities. The 15 unit portable facility was delivered and installed in one week, positioned along a severe drop and between listed trees. Once in place, the units were joined by a maze of walkways that enabled access to the existing dining rooms. The facility was onsite for 16 weeks and enabled Christmas functions at the university to go on as planned.

PKL can offer a kitchen contingency plan that is second to none. We will identify what Portable Kitchens and / or catering equipment you need, as a minimum for temporary cover and undertake a full site survey.
