No summer let-up for Jephsons’ busy fit-out teams

Date posted: August 10, 2017

Some people may be thinking of holidays at this time of year, but the Jephsons fit-out teams have been going full steam ahead with not a moment to spare in July.

Our work with Costa Coffee, the UK’s largest retailer of coffee, has seen us hand over the keys to a brand new café in Wednesbury in the West Midlands as well as completing “sparkles” refurbishments for Cafes in Tescos at Ludlow, Redcar and Stroud.

KFC has been one of our clients for nearly 40 years and there looks to be no sign of a shortage of work for the leading retailer of hot chicken. Our teams were literally all over the country last month, with handovers taking place in Bolton, Wigan, Hereford, Manchester, Luton, Plymouth, Avonsmead, Manchester and Harlow.

On top of that, our bespoke manufacturing centre has been supplying a number of Small Box scheme fittings for KFC franchisees with outlets in busy city centres such as central London, those located near any transport hub or that are close to universities.

“There used to be a time when the summer holiday period would be a bit of a slow-down time, but that appears to all be in the past. Our teams are at full stretch right now, which is why we are looking to recruit new members to work alongside our fully qualified and experienced fitters,” said Commercial Director, Ian Jephson.

"."As the Property Director for a globally renowned brand it is essential that I have complete confidence in my supply chain to deliver to the high standards that Whitbread demands. I first commissioned Jephsons Shopfitters in 2011 on a trial basis with a small number of Costa Coffee fit out projects. Since then the company has gone on to become one of our trusted and regular suppliers. I’ve never been let down by Jephsons and have appreciated the company’s consistency in delivering to time, budget and to the high standards we demand. I have no problem in suggesting them as shopfitting partner for anyone in the catering retail sector.""
