Shell adopts HOUNÖ Invoq Bake as standard for future installations
In recent years, all Shell petrol stations across Switzerland have embarked on a journey to modernise their oven equipment with HOUNÖ’s cutting-edge combi ovens. With the introduction of the new HOUNÖ Invoq Bake, Shell has not only embraced it as well but set it as the benchmark for all future installations.
One of the key driving factors behind the adoption of the new Invoq ovens has been their remarkable energy efficiency and water-saving capabilities. In combination mode with injection steam, the Invoq Bake 6 consumes 26% less energy and 41% less water compared to its predecessor and, impressively, reduces water usage during cleaning by a substantial 27%. This not only translates to cost savings but also aligns with corporate sustainability objectives, contributing positively to green initiatives.
This setup not only provides exceptional capacity flexibility but also allows for versatile floor layout options within their shops. By stacking two units, it becomes possible to simultaneously bake and cook different batches of products, all while saving valuable floor space. The inclusion of hoods streamlines the installation process, making it both effortless and adaptable.

A statement from the Shell Account Team echoes their long-standing partnership with GAMO, praising the exceptional service and product performance. These bake ovens have now been officially designated as Shell’s standard.
Shell employs the Invoq Bake ovens for bake-off and grab & go food in their convenience shop area, complete with a pre-defined, customised recipe program package in French and German. This ensures ease of use and uniformity of results across the entire chain.
Annette Bühlmann, owner of GAMO, expresses their satisfaction with the close collaboration with the Shell Account Team and takes pride in having delivered high-end ovens that have become the new industry standard in convenience.

The solution chosen by Shell is tailor-made for this segment, addressing the needs of staff not necessarily trained in a professional kitchen. It instils confidence with its user-friendly recipes, and the ovens are equipped with low-noise extraction hoods as an integrated solution, allowing for flexible placement and the creation of appealing front-of-the-house service areas, encouraging impulse purchases.
