Large Quantities and Endless Variety - Cost Effective Cooking

Commercial catering philosophy is evolving: with open kitchens, self-service and other offers, commercial and corporate caterers have become true service providers. Service providers who want to offer their customers perfect quality meals, whenever they happen to be required. No easy task considering the reductions in kitchen size, new food trends and regularly changing demands on capacity. An acute shortage of specialists and kitchen-trained professionals make commercial kitchen management even more problematic: the gastronomy industry has seen a 50% drop in the number of apprentices over the last decade. Any invested capital naturally has to pay quick returns. MKN offer a multitude of individual solutions for efficient and professional cooking technology. Speak to us to learn how you can save ten percent investment costs with multifunctional MKN appliances, and more.

Plaza Staff Restaurant

Commerzbank Towers

Just as nobody can imagine Frankfurt’s skyline without  the Commerzbank Tower, the Commerzbank employees wouldn’t want to be without their glass-walled plaza as staff restaurant. 

The spacious, light-flooded plaza with restaurant and coffee bar seats up to around 400 guests. The Klüh Catering company, responsible for preparing meals for employees and visitors here, impresses everyone with its well organized fresh cuisine concept. Besides the conventional food servery counters there are front cooking stations as well as wok and promotion counters offering freshly cooked dishes every day. 

Despite a small production kitchen around 1 200 meals are produced daily. Offering a selection of 6-8 freshly prepared dishes every day is no mean feat. To meet this challenge, the team opted for a clever combination of MKN thermal appliances, consisting of  the multifunctional FlexiChef, quick cooking kettles and MKN combi steamers..
