About Francis Catering

  • The company can trace its roots back to 1973 when it supplied local customers with both catering equipment and food. We were there at the beginning when pubs started to produce a food offering. By the early 1980’s we were solely focussed on supplying catering equipment and have done ever since.
  • We are a full service provider taking projects from design brief through to final installation and ongoing planned maintenance.
  • All office, warehousing and manufacturing is housed under one roof in the West Midlands with excellent transport links ensuring nationwide coverage.
  • Team of over 40 employees spread across all departments.
  • In house service department offering planned and emergency maintenance.
  • In house bespoke manufacture gives us more control and flexibility, something many of our customers find a great benefit when it comes to flexibility and reaction time.

We have designed & installed thousands
of projects over 40 years in business


Naturally we feel that any client who is looking for a new food service installation should choose to work with us because we are good at what we do. Our customers tell us that the thing they value most of all is the control we have over their project, giving them complete peace of mind. Employing our own people means we can bring all the key services in-house, from design through to installation and maintenance which enables us to confidently plan and manage projects from start to finish.

We pay great attention to ensure we understand your business. Whilst we are passionate about designing and creating great commercial kitchens, we never forget that your business is about delighting your customers with consistently high quality food, cooked and served to perfection. All our kitchens are designed and equipped to help you get the very best from the space available and your kitchen staff.

We also make sure that the design, and all of the equipment selected keeps running costs under control to maximise the long term return on your investment.

Our business is about building strong working relationships. Some of our clients have worked with us since 1973. Numerous members of our team have been with the company for over 20 years adding a wealth of knowledge and experience and stability.
