Shakedown was first established in 2018 on Wilmslow Road in Manchester, UK, and now with 3 locations, it has quickly become one of the city’s most popular destinations for bespoke burgers and build-your-own shakes and desserts.
Shakedown have been using the MagiKitch’n grills and Carter Hoffmann holding units since their doors first opened, and added Pitco fryers to their portfolio about a year later, and haven’t looked back since!
Shakedown’s Operations Manager, Alex, told us that Middleby’s “reputable user base, with big clients like Five Guys” is what prompted them to choose Middleby brands to create their recipes, along with the “reliability and efficiency” of the equipment that they were looking for.
“The MagiKitch’n grills are so easy to use and maintain, and they can also easily handle the stores’ high cooking capacity. It’s the same for the Pitco fryers; they are so efficient and great to maintain with their self-filtration.”
Alex also says “our signature ‘Beefed Up’ burger is the star of the MagiKitch’n grill, which comes perfectly accompanied with skin-on fries, cooked and held in the Pitco fryer and Carter Hoffmann holding units respectively.”
“MagiKitch’n, Pitco and Carter Hoffmann form the backbone of our kitchen at Shakedown. Their reliability and consistency help us to serve the perfect burger every time, and keep our customers coming back time and time again.”
