we can help you save
Save money with reduced kitchen space, preparation time and staff requirements.
Reduced food costs
Our flexible approach allows you to reduce your food costs. Our meals are available in a range of tray sizes, so you can prepare exactly the number of portions you need. That means less waste to help keep costs down.
“Prior to working with apetito, we had around half a bin bag of food waste left on residents’ plates each day and this has now been reduced to virtually zero.”
Steve Geach, English Oak Care Homes
Many care homes find it a real challenge to recruit and retain good quality cooks. apetito can take away the worries, and the costs, by eliminating the need for lengthy food preparation.
Our chefs do the bulk of the preparation in our kitchens, so you only need to heat and serve the meals from your kitchen, reducing staff requirements. We believe anyone can run our meal service successfully and we’ll provide all the training and support you need.
By reducing the amount of food preparation, we can help you save space in the kitchen. In fact, a number of the care homes we have worked with have reduced their kitchen sizes enough to put in an extra ground floor bedroom and generate additional revenue.
“The size of our kitchen facility has been reduced and an additional 15ft bedroom with en suite and patio has been added, which has obviously increased the turnover and the value of the business.” Steve Geach, English Oak Care Homes.
Whatever the size of your care home, we’re confident that we can save you money.
