THE HISTORY OF VIZU

Fast Food Systems Ltd started in 1973. We are a family business who have devoted our lives to QSR; learning how a quick service restaurant works, which has allowed us to develop our own brand Vizu and our range of equipment designed to suit the UK and European market.

We noticed that there was a gap in the UK market for speciality QSR equipment. We trademarked the Vizu® brand in 1988 and began our product range with the Vizu Burger and Vizu Fries units. We originally had these produced by third parties but this left us lacking control, so in the early 90’s we opened our own factory at the Fast Food Systems headquarters. Having on site manufacturing facilities allows us to respond to customer requests with almost an overnight turn around for design developments. Our ‘Research and Development’ team communicate directly with our sales and service team to deliver exactly what our users require.

VIZU NAME

Vizu® is derived from Visual. Our products are all about creating a quality point of sale by the use of our equipment. The Vizu® Range sells food products through its aesthetic appearance and the way it’s illuminated. We focus on creating smooth lines so no rivets/ fasteners or rough edges as standard. The look and the feel is very important in the QSR industry; Vizu represents thoughtfully developed, quality quick service restaurant equipment.

Vizu® is synonymous with a high quality, visually appealing product that is robust and built to last. Each product is made from high grade stainless steel which is resistant to corrosion and rust. With no sharp edges our products allow the user to provide a quality product quickly and safely.

VIZU VALUES

At Fast Food Systems we pride ourselves on quality; we really care about building something that is going to last, something that is easy to clean, easy to use and fit for purpose.

We are not the cheapest; falling into the high end quality service equipment category. Choosing Vizu means you are buying into our brand, becoming part of our family, joining a group of people with 50 years of development and growth. You are buying into the longevity and reliance that we care about our brand and we are passionate about what we do. You are not just buying a steel box, you are investing in a product that has been thoroughly developed in terms of use, ease of cleaning and maintenance all contained in a visually appealing body to fulfil your requirements.

We work to a high level of standards for health and safety and we run our factory on the ‘just in time’ lean manufacturing ethos; we also have quality systems and procedures in place. This ensures our work is kept at the highest possible standard consistently.

VIZU SPECIALITY

Vizu® specialises in holding and warming equipment; allowing food to be held for a long period of time by creating the correct ambient atmosphere with regards to temperature and humidity. We create a safe place to store food for extended periods of time without deterioration for both product quality in terms of visual aspects as well as the temperature and taste of the product.

The Vizu® range caters for the ‘slightly unusual’. Vizu will deliver what you need, fit for your purpose and that’s why our customers come back to us time and time again. When you buy Vizu®, you get long holding times safely without product deterioration.

VIZU PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Fast Food Services runs a number of franchises making us a customer of our own brand; we actually use the equipment and frequently provide feedback on the Vizu product family.

We also talk to our partners who test our new products; daily feedback is then reported directly to the research and development team to improve the product. Having our own manufacturing facilities means that over the years we are constantly iterating, spending time researching new methods of design, keeping an eye on the market, looking at what else is being developed and integrating the latest available technology, knowledge and enhancements into the Vizu® range.

VIZU CUSTOMER SUPPORT

We are firm believers that customers are No. 1 and that listening to customers is incredibly important to gather feedback to improve products and enable us to provide a better service.

Fast Food Systems and Vizu are globally recognised brands; we supply our equipment throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. Our staff speak a wide range of languages so please get in touch.

Feedback can be sent in via social media as well as by phone or email.  Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and check out our YouTube videos for new product operation instructions and developments project testing and design films.

Even if you just want to know if a new feature can be incorporated into an existing product leave us a comment and it will be fed-back to the design and development team for possible upgrades to the Vizu product family.
