Four Restaurants, One Kitchen: An Alto-Shaam Success Story

With four restaurants, one kitchen and up to 2,500 customers daily, the challenge WJP Restaurant Group faced was simply how

Located in Huntsville, Alabama, the WJP Restaurant Group is comprised of four foodservice entities: Dipwich, Rocket City Tavern Bar & Grill, Fiero Mexican Grill and The Redstone Gateway Conference & Dining Center.

Their biggest challenge has been maximizing space, since each entity offers vastly different menu items while sharing a single kitchen.

Alto-Shaam provided WJP Restaurant Group a sustainable solution that delivered unmatched food production and quality. They decided to install four Vector® Multi-Cook Ovens, including three full-sized models and one countertop model to support their four vastly different menus.

The Vector Multi-Cook Oven’s exclusive Structured Air Technology® controls temperature, fan speed and air flow inside four individual chambers. This technology allows four food items to be cooked simultaneously at their optimal settings with zero flavor transfer.

In the 40 years Michael Northern has been in the restaurant business, he has not seen results this impressive until he installed the Vector Multi-Cook Ovens.

“Our Alto-Shaam ovens have improved the ability of our team to produce the highest quality, most consistent product that I have ever seen in my career,” said Northern, vice president and partner of WJP Restaurant Group. “We have been able to increase production and provide menu flexibility, all while improving food quality and reducing labor costs.”

Northern said he isn’t the only one who notices the Vector Multi-Cook’s remarkable capabilities.

“Our customers return for their favorite dishes,” he said. “The consistency and quality is priceless. I can say without hesitation, the Vector Multi-Cook Ovens have allowed us to grow.”

According to Northern, his team is also thrilled with the Vector Multi-Cook Oven’s intuitive controls. WJP Restaurant Group has programmed 90 percent of their recipes. Staff members at all skill levels have produced quality food items without the need to watch ovens and turn pans.

Northern said he and his team would be lost without their Alto-Shaam Vector Ovens.

“Guess what, two years in business and the ovens never called in sick,” Northern said. “That’s pretty remarkable, considering the depth of their technology.”
