PERSHORE-based catering equipment specialist Sprint has teamed up with family brewers Robinsons to help create an innovative new visitor centre at the company’s Unicorn Brewery in Stockport.
Sprint designed and installed a commercial kitchen, which will be used by Simon Rimmer, host of Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, for cooking demonstrations and developing food concepts for Robinsons.
Sprint’s sales director, Jason Cunliffe, said: “We were thrilled to work with Robinsons and our partners Maidaid, Foster Refrigerator and Blue Seal to create this kitchen, which will produce dishes using locally sourced ingredients for both visitors and brewery employees.”
Robinsons catering development manager, Christian Whittleworth said: “Our new state-of-the-art kitchen will be used to assist our tenants in developing new menus and food concepts.We will be offering corporate banqueting together with cutting edge conference facilities. We had high expectations for this project and Jason and his Sprint team have delivered.”
Opening in March, the new visitor centre will celebrate 175 years of brewing excellence within the Robinson family. In collaboration with Robinsons, Simon Rimmer has produced a trio of beers to accompany steak, chicken and curry.
