UPDATE / Winter 2018
Welcome... A good year for Foodservice? From RH Hall’s perspective this year has been very exciting and a proud year, with it being our 40th Anniversary and with us also having finalised our next 5-year vision and growth plan, which has now been rolled out throughout the entire business. We have ambitious plans but are confident that we can deliver and continue to build on brand RH Hall and become the best and most trusted caterers’ choice for foodservice equipment solutions Nationwide. That’s our Vision.
In general, and during the past 6 months, we have experienced some tough trading times with still a lot of uncertainty around where Brexit will lead and take us all. No doubt all will start to become clearer over the next few weeks and provide us all with much needed knowledge and understanding as to our country’s position and future prosperity, in order for us to take such changes on board, re shape, gear up and position our businesses onto the right tracks to go positively forward into 2019.
Despite this backdrop we have, however, experienced some good development and growth in many sectors that remain resilient and buoyant - in particular, the grab and go markets, especially coffee shops. Fortunately, for RH Hall, our exclusive brands are a perfect fit for this market place and as such they have performed rather well this year, especially Sharp commercial microwave ovens, Maestrowave products, Smeg ovens, Simply Stainless range, as well as our factory bespoke products.
In terms of the choice and quality of eat out and eat in establishments that we now have in the UK, these have to be some of the very best available anywhere in the World. The foodservice market has massively developed over the past 10 years and from a recent Catering Insight Eat Out Report it seems set to continue, all of which has to be good news for all involved in the foodservice business and supply services going forward. Have a read www.cateringinsight.com/uk-still- eating-out-despite-brexit-uncertainty/.
With the extra busy Christmas trade now firmly upon us we are fully geared up to meet such demand in terms of dedicated customer support and extra stock holding of all the best sellers in anticipation of high demand. We also continue to be proactive and find ways to stimulate extra business and as such look at our exclusive Christmas promotion. Not only have we some extremely attractive prices available, but we are also offering Christmas hampers and gift vouchers based on invoicing spend. Our Christmas promotion runs until 31st December so please check it out and take full advantage of our exclusive festive offers.
As we near the end of 2018, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and suppliers for their continued support. We hope you enjoy the content of this newsletter and wish you all a very happy, merry and fulfilling Christmas and here’s to a happy and successful New Year too!
From all at Team RH Hall

UPDATE / Winter 2018
KRIS’ INDUSTRY UPDATE
Well it’s a little choppy out there to say the least! Day to day business is definitely a bit of a battle and confidence could certainly be better in the marketplace, but I’m pleased to confirm that we crack on as usual, weather any storms and continue to move positively ahead – we must not forget that as a nation we will always like to go out to eat and drink! Especially moving into this busy time of year. Going forward our business pipeline is looking very promising, we’re working with our partners on some great joint business opportunities and together have won several new contracts/tenders over the last 6 months. I can’t mention them all here, but one that springs to mind (and we are really looking forward to working with the team) is TUCO, having recently won both the Equipment Tender and the Innovative Food and Drink Concepts Tender. Our team are looking forward to attending to TUCO’s equipment, soup and Soup Server needs over the coming months and years! A special mention and thank you to our Australian partners Simply Stainless. Ian Belton and Ben Chrystal recently travelled over from Perth (Western
