New Kitchen for Not Dogs Bullring fitted by Kitchen Solutions

Kitchen Solutions have installed a new kitchen for Not Dogs in the prestigious Bull Ring in Central Birmingham. The brief was complicated as Not Dogs wanted to produce a high output menu of vegetarian hotdogs etc on a limited footprint of production space.


Together we decided to install Lincat Silverlink Bain Maries BM4B and BM6CW for hot holding and Lincat CS6 for holding fries. For holding sauces we installed Lincat IH21 induction hobs for sauces and onions. To save space we installed Foster Slimline fridges and freezers.

The trickiest task was sourcing a piece of equipment to toast off buns, cook the specialist vegetarian sausages and finish the various sides of wedges etc. After much thought we decided on the Merrychef E2SHP TREND as a space saving option that would grill, bake, toast, and regenerate at high speed. We arranged for the Not Dogs team to go along to a Merrychef test kitchen and arranged for a chef from the Welbilt group (Merrychef’s owners) to cook their menu with them and see if the oven would be suitable. The test went well and we ordered the 3 phase machine.

The site is now open and the Not Dogs crew is delighted! They are able to produce the menu to the same high finish standard every time without getting held back during busy periods.

Katie and Jane at Not Dogs said: It was a pleasure to work with James and his team. They understood our complex needs perfectly and were able to fit everything we needed into a small, strangely-shaped space. We look forward to working with Kitchen Solutions again in the future!
