Like many restaurateurs, Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL has worked hard adapting his award-winning Café Spice Namasté restaurant to make it Covid-secure.
Cyrus has implemented changes in accordance with government guidance, so returning customers can feel relaxed and confident to enjoy his signature Indian and Parsee dishes. As Cyrus explains in a new video interview with Mechline Developments (click here to view), if operators are to reassure customers and convince them to eat out, they will need to supplement manual cleaning with the latest technologies. In doing this, operators can prove they are going the extra mile to look after customers’ safety and well-being.
Customers returning to Café Spice have been assured not only by the physical changes they have seen, such as sanitisation stations, a new layout for the dining room and disinfecting tables and chairs after each use, but also by the measures that Cyrus has implemented back of house. Cyrus has installed several HyGenikx units, in the kitchen, cold rooms and changing rooms, to combat the hidden dangers that neither he, nor his customers, can see, such as viruses in the air and on surfaces. Working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, HyGenikx is specifically designed for hospitality and foodservice locations and effectively works not only against viruses, but also odours and bacteria, even when employees are in the room. These were installed in Café Spice Namaste to complement Cyrus’s already thorough hygiene routine.
“The HyGenikx system helps people to do things in a better way. If I had my way I’d install it everywhere. It keeps the air and surfaces free of any bacteria and viruses which is a great plus point and in a restaurant environment it’s an added bonus to a customer. I show them the sticker we have and explain that we are looking after their interests and it makes people feel even more comfortable. It’s a one off investment that will make your place much better and safer for all the people that walk in and better still gives you something to shout about.
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend HyGenikx to other hospitality businesses as it is the ideal complement to manual cleaning. It helps to protect customers and staff, extends the shelf life of fresh produce, controls odours and provides additional reassurance so our industry can move forward with confidence and return to some kind of normal.”
HyGenikx utilises a combination of the most effective and refined air and surface sterilisation technologies available to eradicate viruses and bacteria throughout foodservice and hospitality environments. The HyGenikx range has models to suit every application, from front of house and all food areas, to cold rooms, washrooms and refuse areas. Models start from as little as £289 RRP.
