‘We know that restaurateurs often do not have the option to purchase much-needed but costly kitchen appliances. Jointly with PENTAGAST, we offer hospitality entrepreneurs attractive discounts for the use of such equipment and thus enable them to survive on the market in the long term’, says Frank Jäniche, CEO of METRO Germany.

Furthermore, by collaborating with Germany’s largest hospitality equipment association, METRO opens up an even more diverse range of kitchen equipment for customers. For example, Birdie & Co. founder Müller purchases fresh pineapples from METRO – by the pallet. Consequence: Deliveries of 300 units keep one employee busy for a good day and a half cutting up pineapples. That takes time – and ultimately money. Therefore, Müller started contemplating with her METRO customer manager: Isn’t there a way to somehow make the annoying cutting process more efficient? As it turned out, there was in fact a better way: Her METRO customer manager contacted a PENTAGAST affiliate to discuss a professional pineapple cutter and other equipment.
