Restaurant & Bar Chain

Email us or call our Helpdesk on 01702 548 950


We have been working with a restaurant chain for the past five years, providing their venues with planned and reactive maintenance. Working as an extension of their team, we have been able to expand our services alongside their growth and deliver widespread support to their restaurants across the country.


The service from Tempus has evolved over the years to include the management of this client's pre-existing supply chain, as well as planned maintenance, 24/7/365 reactive repairs, new installations, remedial repairs, and CAPEX works.

As part of this reactive and planned agreement, we not only manage existing sites but are responsible for new site openings. Before a site opens we need to ensure the implementation of the required services and the seamless transition from fit-out to opening. As part of this process, we manage and action all warranty callouts throughout the warranty period as well as arranging planned maintenance to ensure compliance throughout this process and from opening.

Since 2017, we have delivered the service in line with the agreed outcomes and requirements by assigning a dedicated Tempus Account Manager. The Helpdesk Team is in regular contact with the client’s Operations Managers and General Managers to ensure issues are raised and resolved in a timely manner. The dedicated Account Manager takes an overview of the contract to ensure stakeholders are satisfied and any issues can be resolved quickly, all the while ensuring every contact is met with site knowledge and an awareness of ongoing works.

With excellent working relationships with our suppliers and the client's supply chain, it has been possible to streamline our service and provide cost savings year on year. In the effort to provide the best value and ease of use, Tempus is constantly reviewing and negotiating supply chains. This has ensured that we are always able to provide cost certainty.
