FWE’s Foodservice Professionals Maximize Available Space at Disney

The serious businesses of foodservice demands are no fantasy here. Specifically, the challenges of Disney’s Storyteller Café at Disney Land in Anaheim, CA.

Storyteller Cafe

The specifications of a new remodel at The Storyteller Café called for new equipment and custom solutions for heated holding equipment that would take advantage of every square inch of this facility’s kitchen.  And like so many restaurants, chain operations, and high traffic facilities, this is a familiar tale of space and time.  The Storyteller Cafe’s kitchen needed to make the most use of every square inch possible, quickly.

FWE’s food warming / foodservice professionals reviewed the needs of the kitchen staff and layout and discovered that the café had a small space available under the counters in the kitchen that was not being utilized.  To maximize efficiency in a large volume kitchen such as this, FWE was able to offer the support and know-how to get the perfect heated food holding equipment into the tightest of spots. FWE knows how to adapt and improvise an all-inclusive food handling solution. FWE’s professional team of heated holding and foodservice technicians, with over 60 years in the industry, provide the problem solving ability needed to understand and deliver on the complete scope of a customer’s needs.

Lightweight, highly mobile and versatile.

Under the counter heated holding cabinets of the Handy Line Server Carts (HLC) were adapted and manufactured specifically for the Storyteller’s Café specific needs. These custom HLC carts can fit in some of the tightest spaces and perform with energy saving excellence.

Further modifications were made to alter the carts to incorporate recessed handles. With the handles now flush and nothing to catch on the workers clothing during service, this simple modification contributes to the safety of the staff. With the Heated Holding Cabinets at knee level, the cooks can quickly and efficiently grab hot food and plate it without having to move around the cramped kitchen.

FWE’s holistic and utilitarian approach makes it possible to hold food hot consistently from this once wasted space. Holding products fresher and longer allows for the efficient and safest servicing of thousands upon thousands of customers that pass through its doors. Staff members, such as the Operations Asset Manager, attested to the precision engineering of FWE equipment, “Thanks for the perfectly fitting warming boxes. FWE comes through for the customer one more time! Please pass along our thanks to everyone on your team for a great product.

FWE Sponsors "Healthy Recipes Made Easy" Webinars Series

FWE is teaming up with the not-for-profit Organic School Project (OSP) to support “Healthy Recipes Made Easy” Webinars that are targeting K-8 School Foodservice Directors, Managers, and Registered Dietitians.  The objective is to combat childhood obesity and the health complications that accompany it through an integrated program that includes healthy breakfast, lunch, and side item recipes for schools. 

Beginning in May, a series of (4) 30 minute Webinars were launched to explain the “Healthy Recipes Made Easy” curriculum and to inspire more scratch cooking in K-8 schools.  Recipes using the freshest, healthiest ingredients were provided.  One of the key objectives of these Webinars is to establish a comfort level with Foodservice Directors and Registered Dietitians in introducing these recipes and concepts into their school foodservice programs.  To that end, the Webinars cover easy, healthy recipes that address breakfast, center-of-the-plate lunch, and sides.  

As a sponsor of this healthy eating lifestyle curriculum, FWE‘s ovens and holding systems are featured in all 4 Webinars presented.  The Webinars touch upon the reduction of food and labor costs involved when using FWE foodservice equipment.

The “Healthy Recipes Made Easy” Webinars feature Greg Christian, Chef & Executive Director of OSP.  He is assisted by Jerry Herbik, a former Chartwells Foodservice Manager with over 30 years of school foodservice experience.  In conjunction with ANC, Mr. Christian will also provide live cooking demonstrations at FWE‘s Booth # 317 in June.  Be sure to stop by and learn more about “Healthy Recipes Made Easy”.
