Western Stainless Solutions and Pleased to Meet You

Recently, we were contracted to provide another stainless steel installation in the Perth area at a restaurant called Pleased to Meet You. Pleased to Meet You provides high quality cuisine in a casual environment. They don’t take reservations, making their restaurant less predictable than many. In addition, they have many offerings, both Australian and multi-cultural, with their own twists and tweaks added to the recipes.

Western Stainless Solutions and Pleased to Meet You

Consequently, Pleased to Meet You needed a bar and kitchen setup that is built for speed and versatility. We manufactured and installed the kitchen in a traditional vein with more than enough sinks, shelves and tables to provide everything they needed in a kitchen. They have enough table space for even the heaviest “prep” days and enough open floor space to most effectively utilise it.

While the kitchen turned out great, it is the bar that makes us the most proud. The owner wanted us to build a bar that provides maximum functionality while maximising use of space. The unique requirement: he wanted a bar that provided enough versatility and flexibility to change the layout according to his market.

In other words, if more people wanted cocktails than beer, he wanted to be able to pull out a beer station and put in another cocktail station. The opposite also applies: if they are selling more beer than cocktails, they want to be able to remove a cocktail station and put in another beer station.

We call ourselves “Western Stainless Solutions” because we specialise in providing unique, custom solutions to requests such as this one. We decided upon a modular system with modular glass washing stations, beer stations and cocktail stations. This allows management to “think on their feet” and instantly adjust the dynamic of the bar to the customers’ needs.
