HOUNÖ is the perfect partner for retail stores. We help to overcome challenges unique to retail operators and Food to Go stores. HOUNÖ combi ovens have been installed in the Food to Go department within a Tesco Superstore in Calne, Wiltshire, in the UK.
Tesco’s Food to Go department offers a wide range of freshly cooked hot food; including whole chickens, chicken portions, ribs, pizzas, paninis, sausages, pies and sausage rolls, as well as a breakfast menu.
To provide this extensive menu to their customers, Tesco Calne has three HOUNÖ combi ovens installed. They have a CombiPlus®, where two ovens with each 6 trays are stacked on top of each other.
Furthermore, Tesco Calne has yet another combi oven with 6 trays, which is built together with a rotisserie for production of roast chickens.
The HOUNÖ ovens at Tesco Calne are PassThrough ovens. The ovens are positioned with the front facing the counter in the Food to Go department, which promotes impulse buying.
The use of PassThrough ovens in a Food to Go store increases sales as it creates an inviting kitchen atmosphere.
HOUNÖ has provided ovens to Tesco for more than 20 years, so we have years of experience working with supermarket chains and understanding their unique challenges.
That is why HOUNÖ’s special solutions PassThrough and integrated fat separation system alleviates concrete problems faced by retail operators and Food to Go stores. The HOUNÖ ovens in Tesco Calne are also equipped with an integrated fat separation system, which diverts grease into a tray mounted beneath the oven. The system helps avoid clogged drains and prevents fat passing into the watercourse. The fat separation system is especially helpful when cooking whole roast chickens, as these produce quite a lot of fat when cooking.
Extraordinary food safety with PassThrough
HOUNÖ offers the special PassThrough solution for Visual Cooking oven sizes 1.06 and 1.10. HOUNÖ developed this special oven solution in collaboration with British supermarket chains.
HOUNÖ’s unique PassThrough solution is designed to be placed in between the kitchen and serving area, as it has a door on both front and back. You can access the oven from both sides, giving a complete separation of raw and cooked food.
More than 5000 HOUNÖ PassThrough ovens have been installed in the UK alone.
