Kitchen Lead times. How long does it take?

We are happy to say we are very busy and we have a team of highly skilled tradesman who are also incredibly busy.

We plan our calendars very carefully and making sure everyone is available at the same time means looking several months into the future. 

You might find shorter lead times times with other companies. Especially the big high street names. But our service is totally different to there’s. Their model is built around volume and speed. That’s why they have huge departments dedicated to complaints. Because they know they are coming.Our model is different. Because we are a local brand, we plan our business around giving every customer the best experience possible. Complaints would hurt our business so we do everything in our power to not get any.
