“We have worked with Sandro and his team for many years now.
Food & Beverage is an integral part of our operations and we have been delighted with the recent install of our bars and kitchens in our Leeds hotel.
The support received from Sandro on all aspects of kitchen design as well as suggestions based on his wide knowledge of equipment and suitability has been first class. On the back of the success of the Leeds project, we have engaged again to work on our latest hotel in Manchester.
We have established a strong working relationship with the Monarch team and I would strongly recommend their services to operators seeking a professional outfit who do what they say they are going to do, when they say they are going to do it.”

“I have worked with Monarch Catering for the last 12 years and have always found them to be professional & trustworthy, the comfort that Nick & Sandro are overseeing my projects and communicating the progress directly to me takes a lot of the stress out of opening new sites.
Monarch have a positive “can do” attitude in order to solve situations, invariably without myself being aware until after the event.
I have never found a company that can deliver the whole agreed package, to our agreed specification, at our agreed project price with the same efficiency as Monarch Catering Equipment.
They deliver what I want , when I want it & how I want it…”
John Branagan, Executive Chef Director, Living Ventures
Monarch Catering Equipment were asked to design and supply the commercial kitchen facility at Australasia, was a new £2m restaurant located below the Armani Building, on Deansgate in Manchester.
The location of this restaurant and bar presented a challenge, with it being entirely underground, so special provision had to be made for ventilation and drainage to ensure that the kitchen would operate to its optimum potential.
The restaurant proved to be a big hit, and it’s continued popularity has meant that MCE has been involved in several alterations and enhancements to the kitchen and bar areas over recent years has been necessary to cope with the increased footfall and allow for further success.
“Working with Monarch Catering Equipment has been a key factor in the evolution of Tattu restaurants.
Together we have refined our kitchen design to allow for a smoother and more efficient flow of service. The attention to detail and desire to produce something unique and special represents a great synergy with our brand.
We find that Monarch successfully balance leading technology and cutting edge design with best value, which is a priceless combination.
We hope for many more projects together.”
