Everything in the Garden is rosy

The-Ivy-Chelsea-Garden-Cocktails

Sprint’s design development and project manager Ross Ryan talks about the company’s involvement with The Ivy Chelsea Garden in London’s fashionable King’s Road.

“This was a large scale project which ran over six months. It was very involved as we had to lower the kitchen equipment in to the basement. The kitchen itself was large and it took three months to develop the design with the restaurant’s director Mark Askew.

“Sprint also supplied the bar and patisserie counter which in itself was a huge task as it wasn’t just a normal bar. It had to be high end, functional and colour coordinated to match the restaurant décor. I sourced colour codes to match the décor and had the bar fridges and back bar cupboard sections powder coated to match, which looked great.

“We also designed and supplied two bar areas for the outside garden area, which again took time to design and develop as we had to consider possible water damage, uneven floors, functionality, mobility and how we could make this work best for the client – which I feel we achieved.

“The client was very impressed with the overall finish and quality of the whole project which gave me a real sense of achievement.”

Stuck on sushi

Sticks n sushi 1

Sticks’n’Sushi, one of Denmark’s most successful restaurant groups, commissioned Sprint Group to install an open kitchen and sushi counters at its smart new venue in London’s bustling Canary Wharf.

Located at 1 Crossrail Place, the restaurant – the group’s fourth in the capital – opened its doors on May 1.

The restaurant, which features a 23 metre long bar, is the first of the brand to offer a breakfast menu combining Japanese and Danish influences. Among the options are rice soup, croissants and Nordic and Japanese breakfast trays.

Often described as the market leader in Japanese cuisine in the Nordic region, Sticks’n’Sushi serve high quality, fresh food based on a combination of traditional sushi and yakitori sticks from the grill. Chicken, pork, beef and vegetable skewers are also available.

Going loco for Las Iguanas

Torquay Las Iguanas 290415

There’s a Latino spring to the Sprint team’s step thanks to three recent installations for fast-growing restaurant group Las Iguanas.

A 170 cover restaurant with piazza opened in Commercial Way, Woking, in March.

The Torquay branch, pictured above, is part of the English Riviera town’s new £12 million dining quarter, Abbey Sands, and has a stunning seafront location. The restaurant launched to rave reviews at the end of April.

Completing the tropical trio is the new restaurant in Swansea. Situated in the Castle Quarter area of the city centre, it will open its doors on May 11.

Many thanks to Las Iguanas for supplying the photos.

Everyone at Sprint HQ was delighted to see this photo, which was used on the front cover of Catering Insight magazine in July 2012, make a reappearance as the cover photo for Foodservice Equipment’s Twitter page.

The only magazine and website serving purchasing professionals in major restaurant, hotel and mass catering groups, Foodservice Equipment is the sister magazine of Catering Insight, which featured the Sprint team, headed by founder and managing director David Ryan, on the Bath leg of its epic schedule of 11 installations in 12 months for Brasserie Blanc.

Revamped airport pub takes off

airport4 Three years after completing a ground-breaking Jamie Oliver project at Gatwick, the Sprint team has been involved in a high profile airport pub overhaul.

We installed a commercial kitchen and bar at The Airport Pub & Grill near Manchester Airport, which has re-opened its doors after a 16 week closure following substantial investment from Stockport-based Robinsons Brewery.

Located on Ringway Road just 50 feet away from Manchester Airport’s Terminal 3 runway – the closest you can get to a plane without boarding it in the UK – the pub is a popular destination for plane spotters. The menu features British, American and European inspired burgers and steaks and craft and cask beers are available.

The makeover has been described by Robinsons as the most unique refurbishment in the company’s history and also signals a move back into managed houses.

Simon Taylor, business development manager for Robinsons’ managed houses operation, said: “Sprint worked closely with the development team from the very beginning of the concept providing ideas and solutions as we put our scheme together.

“The end result is a great kitchen which will help us meet the needs of our customers efficiently and effectively. The installation was smooth and on time.”

Sprint was also involved in Robinsons projects at The Waggon Inn at Uppermill and The Prince of Orange in Ashton under Lyne.

Many thanks to Robinsons for supplying the photos.
