What our customers say!



From: The Bread Shack
To: Neil
Subject: Smeg ALFA43XAU 4 Tray 10A Convection Oven

I have baked hundreds of bread rolls and other baked goods in the oven and have come to appreciate the amazing seal the oven door has. I can create enough steam by misting the rolls with water before the bake and adding a little bit of water to the bottom tray. Another impressive feature is the even browning of all items on all trays in every position. I can bake 32 bread rolls on 4 trays and every roll will be evenly browned, which I didn’t even think was possible beforehand. It is a powerful oven with a strong fan and feels like a workhorse, sturdy and robust. I am a fan of the sleek design and it’s easy to clean.

I am very happy with the performance so far.

Subject:Thank you

I just wanted to say how blown away we are with the speed and professionalism of you guys, from 6am Monday morning to a complete refit by Friday afternoon is just an amazing achievement.

I have been in restaurants my whole life and I have never seen anything like it. It’s been a true pleasure working with such a positive and proactive group of people. From the speed and creativity in design from Chris, to sourcing and commissioning all the equipment and stainless steel so close to Christmas from Glenn and the incredible demolition and rebuild by Michael. Your teams and contractors are an absolute credit to you, and I can’t tell you what the new kitchen has done to the moral of our team at Bells after such a challenging year. Thank you so much!

I was speaking with Brad from Paterson's Pies yesterday and he had nothing but rave reviews for SCK. Happy with the equipment, delivery, customer service and the whole experience. He has dealt with other suppliers and SCK has been his best so far.

Hi Scott

Thanks again for doing a fantastic job on the kitchen fitout at Jonah’s.

I would like to thank Sydney Commercial Kitchens, Scott Morgan and the team in relation to works completed recently at Jonah’s Whale Beach.

I appreciate their professionalism, their punctuality and commitment in delivering a high quality result within a short time frame. Scott Morgan’s assistance and communication throughout the entire process was always in a helpful and professional manner and I was kept updated every step of the way.

I would not hesitate in recommending Sydney Commercial Kitchens and I would definitely use them again in the future if we required services of this nature again.

I would like to commend Mel on her exceptional customer service. Mel went above and beyond in order to help us replace a blender which we needed urgently in order for our fuel bar to operate. I spoke with around 15 other companies on the day and most of the customer service was terrible in comparison.

Thank you for your service and help, my business partners and myself really appreciate it.

Good Afternoon Scott,

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your effort and commitment to the Sydney Domestic T2 projects; Hokka, Hokka, Roll’d Vietnamese and Chur Burger.

Versatile Fitout recognise the challenges experienced throughout the duration of these works, in particular being airport constraints, high-detail design and substantially compressed programmes.

Long hours were invested working closely together to bring these projects to completion. After an exceptionally busy few weeks, OC was issued last week for all three tenancies with each now open for trade. The client, SSP Australia, is very happy with the lengths all members involved went to in order to achieve this programme and to such high standard.

The outcome and quality of these projects are works to be proud of by everyone involved.

Thank you again for your team work and dedication. We wish you happy holidays and look forward to working with you in the new year.

Kind Regards,

I hope to be in the same position by Oct 4, 2012 – “that’s the day I turn 50”. Our plan is to live in Canada for a year then France…costs nothing to dream!

Hi there Neil

Thank you for your kind note. I really appreciate it.

I was just so honoured to be in the company of Sydney Commercial Kitchens. I remember when I first heard about your successes at the Dee Why Swap meeting - you mentioned that you had a record month. I can't remember the figure but I remember leaving there thinking WOW, that's amazing. And the fact that you can do it as a micro-business is inspirational.

To be honest, I would love to be in your position one day. I still have many systems to set up but I hope to live ... well, maybe not in Santa Monica ... but wherever I can take my 2 cats and 1 dog - as long as I have internet access.

Thanks again for your good wishes. They mean more to me than you probably know. Let's stay in touch.

It has taken many dollars and many hours to establish this business and to open my 1950's diner.

I recently sent an inquiry to you via the internet on a Sunday, which was responded to the next morning. Since then I have spoken to Samantha from your company and she has not only organised all documentation and requested the equipment to be dispatched in under 5 days, she has also offered some amazing suggestions, support and given directions to other companies that can fulfill my business needs that your company can not.

I only wish I had of known of your company earlier, as my business would of been where it is today alot sooner. Many thanks to you for providing a helpful, well run company that services the hospitality industry so effectively and hassle free. And as for Samantha, she is an absolute pleasure to deal with, knowledgable and a definite asset to your company. Again, many thanks.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your help last time with our blender enclosures, the prompt service that you provided was excellent and greatly appreciated.

We would like to purchase a spare countertop blender for the store VITAMIX BLENDER DRINK MACHINE VM10011 and last time I spoke to you, you mentioned that you could do a better price for us than what is on the website.

Just wondering if you could email through a cost to us as we are keen to get one ASAP.

Thanks Scott

Kind regards

Dear Neil,

I recently purchased a Bromic display fridge for my service customer waiting lounge and I would like to say it was the best experience I have ever had.

From the time I made my first enquiry on the internet to the fridge arriving at my dealership I have been followed up and made feel like I am the only customer your company is dealing with. (I am on the other side of Australia)

Then to top it off I received a thank you card!!!

My company is selling $70000.00 motor cars and the customers are not receiving the kind of service that I have received from yours only spending $1700.00.

I told your story last night in a sales meeting and there where a few heads hung low……

So keep up the excellent culture of your business and continue to grow!!!!

PS you where not the cheapest price.

Hi Scott,

As you know, I’ve received my “Smoother on counter” blender on Monday. I’ve made a few different smoothies already – with hard veggies like carrot and beetroot and ice – and the blender has worked well. Now, I only need to work on the taste... *smile*.

So I just wanted to say thanks – for all of your help and great customer service!

Thanks again,

Dear Samantha,

I just wanted to thank you and Neil for all your help in sourcing our kitchen equipment. The equipment arrived promptly and in good order. The kitchen looks great.

Hi Neil

We have received our fridge.

I just wanted to say Thank You for your care in ordering and delivery.

It is just what we wanted – the green frosted doors look great and the top bench is just the right height.

The delivery guys were just the BEST, as it wasn’t real easy to maneuver such a heavy object into position, but they were very careful with everything.

Could you give me a phone number for a service man in our area (goldcoast) QLD?

Thanks again

Dear Neil,

I wanted to send you a quick note to congratulate you. My first experience dealing with your company happened on Tuesday before Easter. Our combi oven had failed, and the repairman said "unrepairable", at which time we began the search for a new one. I am the Director of a Bible School in Moss Vale, and although our students were on break, we had a group arriving on Tuesday this week....we had to have an oven very quickly!

I got on the web and found a number of places who began the search for me, your staff member Samantha was the employee who assisted me. The following day, Wednesday the 4th April, Samantha was working very diligently and was able to locate an oven that was of greater quality than we had thought we could afford, and had worked out a price that we could afford. She organised for me to be able to see the oven and assisted in facilitating the ovens installation the following day, Thursday 5th.

Samantha's attention to detail was superb, and her knowledge of the product and salesmanship was excellent. Other companies were very good in getting back to me, but Samantha was ahead of all of them.

This is the first time I have written to an employer in this manner, and it is a reflection of my gratitude to your company, but in particular to Samantha. Without her attention to detail and perseverance, we would not have had our problem solved in as timely a manner. Our guests were able to be catered for without the slightest hint of a problem, whereas we were very close to having to cancel their booking, had we not had an oven for them to use!

Thanks again,

To: Neil Willis

I understand you are Samantha’s boss and when I told her that I was grateful for the way in which she had handled my enquiry, and thought she was an asset to your company, she said “I wish you would tell my boss”, so I am.

She really was very helpful in describing choices, checking availability and confirming back to me delivery arrangements.

It is nice to be able to write a “well done” note instead of normal complaints.

Best regards and well done,

Hi Gavin

Thankyou so much for your prompt delivery.

It arrived today! I received a call this morning from the transport company to advise that it was here and to get further delivery instructions. I almost fell off my chair, as did the delivery company.

That is amazing and an absolute pleasure to do business with you. I will be sure to pass this high level of service to others....

LIQUID replenish your soul

Dear Neil

I would first of all like to congratulate you on the wonderful business you are running. Being in the process of setting up my first business, I thoroughly researched all the different catering equipment suppliers out there before finally settling on Sydney Commercial Kitchens. My initial criteria for going with your company was that it comparably had the lowest prices but once I had made my first purchase, it was the first-class service I received that ensured I became a loyal customer.

Over the last few months dealing with Sydney Commercial Kitchens, you have consitently gone out of your way to ensure I am 100% satisfied with all my purchases and your efficiency and professionalism are second to none. I have no qualms about recommending your business to anyone looking to purchase commercial equipment and look forward to dealing with you further in the future.

Kind regards,
