Same great menu in a kiosk environment thanks to the Perfect Fryer!

22 July 2020

The latest Degani Café opening, is a kiosk located in Westfield Doncaster. “This is one of a few kiosk layouts that Degani currently have, however they are looking at expanding over the next couple of years said James Marshall, National Store Development Manager for Degani. “The kiosk format is one of models that we see real growth potential in. We are looking to open 40 more Degani outlets over the next 12 months alone throughout Australia.”

Meris Food Equipment have supplied some of the equipment for the latest fit-out, which includes a Perfect Fryer. In a kiosk environment there is less infrastructure such as exhaust hoods and reduced kitchen space. The Perfect Fryer was suggested as it enabled Deganis to produce the freshly fried food options on their menu despite the non-typical environment. “Given Degani wanted to include some of their most popular fried menu items, even in this smaller format store, the best solution was the installation of a Perfect Fryer, said Andrew Brick at Meris Food Equipment. We worked with the Degani team through the design process to come up with the best solution to meet their business needs”.

Aside from the small footprint and being completely self-contained, the Perfect Fryer has the added benefit of being automated to produce a consistently high quality product. “We were impressed with the quality of food the fryer produced, right from the trial cooking our chefs did, but additionally, all staff members cooking will now be able to produce those results, said Mr Marshall. That is imperative to us, as our customers expect the same high standard of menu items across all our stores and locations”.

Degani started back in 1999 and have grown the number of venues predominantly in Melbourne but also some in Queensland. Degani sells over 100,000 cups of coffee a week. They continue to work on expansion and have multiple projects for store development. If you have any franchise enquiries for Degani they can be contacted on (07) 3373 1090 or email [email protected]

What our clients say

“The FlashGrill is so good. Always such an even cook. Never have to worry about re-heating, it’s always at temp. Super easy to clean and nothing ever sticks. We cover the plate with 30 frozen burgers, cook them, then add another 30 straight away with no change in cooking time between the first lot and the second and get the same great result. It’s really impressive” Katrina Sanderson, Food Operations Manager - Bowser Bean and Vantage Fuels

It enhances flavours by cooking at low temperatures.

"FlashGRILL completes any food. It enhances flavours by cooking at low temperatures. It can perfectly caramelise and grill the products. It is great for white meat and fish. It is very satisfying to cook different kinds of meats and ensuring clients can fully perceive the differences in tastes due to the specific flavour of each product being preserved."Chef Francesco di Maria, - LA FIORENTINA Ristorante-Pasticceria Roma - Italy
“Since I have had the possibility to cook at lower temperatures, meat does not stiffen or burn. It remains evenly cooked and intact, and enhances flavour. Thanks to FlashGRILL, which keeps the temperature even on the full cooking surface, I managed to optimise cooking in my work kitchen. I also use the CLOCHE every day. Thanks to it, I obtain great results with meat and fish, like tuna. I am extremely satisfied.”Chef Diego Asara, - GINGER SAPORI E SALUTE Roma - RM
