Catering in winter tourist resorts can count on some great allies: the cold and snow activities make you very hungry! In order to make the most of tourism and appetite, you need to be ready with an offer of snacks and snacks in which innovative desserts accompany the more traditional ones. And it is important that even the historic places keep up with the news: we talked about it with Marco Spizzirri, owner of the Gran Caffè Leonetti.
Where is your place located? Does the location influence its success?
We are in Camigliatello Silano, a small mountain town in the province of Cosenza.
The café is located on the central street of the town, therefore in a prominent position that makes us well known.
When did you decide to open your restaurant?
I only discovered it 9 months ago, but it is a historic restaurant that has been open since 1953. A real institution in the country!
What does it propose?
We are a café with pastry shop and ice cream shop . Our strong point is in fact the desserts, including the typical Calabrian dessert called Pitta Mpigliata . It is filled with dried fruit, honey and aromas and its recipe dates back to the 1700s. Recently we have also been offering a savory offer to expand the menu.
What are the strengths of the venue?
Definitely its history and location. During the winter and Christmas holidays, the area is frequented by many tourists.
Why did you choose to rely on Techfood?
Much of the credit goes to the representative, who made a very good impression on us with his reliability and competence. We wanted to introduce some innovative desserts to update our offering and we were immediately smitten with Choco Burger . We also have Rondò Complex for making crêpes , a much better known but still highly successful product.
What are the advantages of having a Techfood machine?
In the cold, chocolate products go a long way. And Choco Burger in anticipation of the snow and Christmas will be very useful to us, we will have real peaks in customers.
It is also a very easy machine to use, so we don't need extra staff and can serve customers very quickly. In offering innovative sweets you run the risk of turning a service into disservice due to waiting times, but this doesn't happen thanks to Techfood.
What must a successful restaurant have?
In the first place I put the staff: you need to have a valid, professional and kind staff. But you also need to make innovative choices that can entice customers to come back.
