UAE-based maintenance specialist Hitches & Glitches (H&G), a part of the Farnek Group, has launched a dedicated division to provide a comprehensive suite of services for standalone restaurants, bakeries and hotel kitchens across the UAE.
 
Announcing the new division, H&G said it has been launched to tackle the major issues facing commercial kitchens in the UAE today such as gas and electricity supply for cookers and ovens, temperature faults with fryers, poor performing dishwashers, blocked sinks and drains, refrigeration as well as air conditioning and ventilation. 
 
"Addressing these issues requires a dedicated and experienced, specialist maintenance team with multi skill sets," said Zohaib Azhar, the Head of Operations at H&G.    
 
"Many hotels made kitchen technicians redundant during the pandemic and now rely on external contractors to fulfill this role. There is a dearth of quality companies that have dedicated teams specialising in commercial kitchen maintenance," he stated. 
 
According to him, with the support of its parent company Farnek, H&G’s new dedicated division can procure spare parts quickly and proficiently from approved suppliers both locally and internationally, for any kind of kitchen equipment. 
 
H&G can also supply and install kitchen equipment, whether it’s as straightforward as replacing a component, or broader service support during a renovation or indeed installing a complete kitchen in a new restaurant, he added. 
 
According to him, sustainability is also another issue that restaurant managers are contending with. H&G in conjunction with Farnek, can provide consultancy to evaluate and reduce kitchen waste, energy and water consumption, noted Azhar.    
 
"Another key benefit is we are present in all seven emirates, so customers with multiple F&B outlets across the UAE can be covered under one contract, providing consistent service efficiency, cost-effectively and conveniently," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
