In 2016 we will be bringing many new equipment to create a novelty in the fast-food sector. We want to become a one-shop-stop for all restaurant and bakery owners, where they can get all type of equipment required to make their product.” In 2015, the business grew 300 per cent, and the company is expecting the same level of growth in 2016.
The company is continuously striving on the betterment of some of its key products like planetary mixers, spiral dough kneaders as well as pizza ovens. “Our 2016 batch of planetary mixers will have timer facilities and we have developed an automatic timer changer system for our spiral mixers as well. We continuously strive for the upgradation of our products to give our clients a unique experience in using our equipment. We have many clients which are new to the industry and want to start-up on mid level. A few of our renowned clients include Taj Hotels, Courtyard by Marriott, Barbeque Nation, Monginis, Fariyas Hotels and many more. We also have a vast experience of helping new start-ups to set up a perfect kitchen in an attractive budget. And that’s why our motto is – ‘We don’t sell, we help you buy’,” he said.
When asked about the current hospitality demand/ trend in the commercial products segment, Master opined, “Customers nowadays need a commercial product which has value for money. Even the quality being the same, the cost of some international brands are multiple times higher than our products. Customers now are keen on trying products which give results and service, instead of spending on brand name. Customers all over India are choosing Alister. Our products are replacing Italian and German equipment even in renowned hotels.”
