CASE STUDIES


Amici di Carlo brings Italian dining and deli experience to affluent Glasgow suburb


T


he affluent commuter town of Bearsden in the north west of Glasgow is the lucky recipient of a brand new, family-owned Italian restaurant and delicatessen, thanks to the efforts of renowned Scottish-Italian restaurateur Carlo Andreucetti, and catering equipment specialists QED.


Amici di Carlo provides over-the-counter Italian cooked meats, cheeses, cakes and many other delicacies together with pizzas, salads and fresh Italian coffee to eat in or take away. As Mr Andreucetti explains: “After being away from the restaurant business for some time, my partner and I decided to design a new outlet majoring on good quality, fresh Italian ingredients that the people of Bearsden could enjoy throughout the day.

“We came across a former bakers’ retail and café premises near Bearsden Cross in the heart of the community and set about transforming it into an authentic Italian dining experience earlier in 2017.


“I had known Robert Campbell of QED for many years, as he is a well-regarded figure in the Scottish and UK catering industries. I was particularly impressed with the QED selection of display counters and knew that I could trust Robert and his team to deliver a project that matched our vision for Amici di Carlo. “The final result combines Italian warmth and hospitality with the very latest catering technology to create a unique venue that has our personality running all the way through it. The local Bearsden residents are already enjoying the


unique ambience of Amici di Carlo and are coming in regularly to take advantage of the retail, takeaway and eat-in offerings of the business. “I have nothing but the highest praise for QED, who delivered a complex project with great expertise, on time and on budget.” QED supplied all the building refurbishment, shop-fitting, electrical and plumbing work, including lighting, air conditioning and toilets. In addition, the equipment that was supplied and installed included refrigerated display counters, an ice cream counter, back bar coolers and shelving in the restaurant. The kitchen equipment included a dishwasher, glass washer, storage refrigeration, pizza oven, pizza prep table, saladette, cooking suite, extraction, hygienic wall cladding and safety flooring.
