The multi award winning Beyond India has been serving favour packed Indian cuisine from its North Adelaide and Modbury restaurants for almost 20 years. When Robby Gupta and his team noticed that events in the area caused quiet times in his restaurants, they decided to take their blend of spices and bursts of flavour out on the road and serve where the customers were.
“When we started out almost a decade back, catering was dominated by junk food,” explains owner Robby Gupta. “We already had a great product and all we did was customise it for outdoor events. Our offering is very different from the rest – delicious, filling, good quality, freshly made Indian curries and breads – and that has helped in getting our name out there faster.”
Robby worked with Comcater to find an equipment solution for his food truck concept.
“Food truck business is very exciting, thrilling and challenging at the same time. From an equipment point of view, not all equipment is built for mobile conditions. Food truck owners should take care of this when moving around their truck on different terrains and roads. We ride long hours with heavy trucks and travel a great deal of distance to reach interstate events and it is important to keep the kitchen equipment safe and secure throughout.”
Robby settled on Menumaster commercial microwaves and Frymaster commercial deep fryers to tackle the majority of the heavy lifting in each state-of-the-art food truck. But when it came to fitting out their production kitchen, Robby wanted only the best on offer.
“We have invested in kitchen equipment like RATIONAL VCC units which allow us to cook very large quantities of sauces and curries consistently and efficiently,” explains Robby. “ Ensuring that our production facility is set out correctly facilities our processes and we place the utmost importance ensuring we operate in hygienic conditions. All of our cool rooms are fitted with Cambro Camselving Premium. The main attribute that attracted us to this is that they are antimicrobial and that they fit in with our HCCAP system. They are very very strong, are easy to clean and are super sturdy.”
