In a recent article by, philSTAR.com, the kitchen equipment supplier company, HKR is moving into other business ventures such as business development. Not only is HKR a leader in providing high-quality kitchen equipment, they are also leaders in helping build businesses as well. The HKR company was established in 1993 with the aim to serve quick-service restaurants the necessary kitchen equipment they need in order to run their restaurants.
Today, the company has over 120 employees and has services branches in several cities such as Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao and Baguio and other locations in the Philippines. Over time the companies clients have expanded just restaurants to include country clubs, resorts, airports, institutional kitchens and many more. As one could imagine from a kitchen equipment supplier- they have many brands that they supply. Some notable equipment companies include- US brand Henny Penny which supplies pressure fryers, open fryers, rotisseries, and heated displays. Other brands include-Rational and Irinox. HKR has also become innovative in what types of supplies they offer. Recently, the company began offering innovative and energy- efficient equipment such as the Henny Penny Evolution Elite which actually reduces the shortening amount in frying by 40 percent. In addition to sales, HKR’s other services include supply of genuine parts, preventive maintenance installation, testing and commissioning- just to name a few. In addition to all of the roles they play in kitchen supplies, the company has also developed a Planned Maintenance program (PM) aimed at minimizing business downtime by extending care and rehabilitation of equipment no longer covered by warranty.

It envisions itself to one day grow and expand to other industries, such as industrial equipment lines and service various locations in Asia. HKR is at the top of their game and it will be interesting to see how the company expands and grows as time goes by.
