Cammax Limited, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of cutting-edge interactive kiosks, is pleased to announce an exciting collaboration with the brand new York Minster Refectory restaurant.
As of April 2023, a state-of-the-art outdoor kiosk has been installed within meters of the new restaurant entrance, just in time for the highly anticipated public opening this week (April 20th).
The new outdoor kiosk, which boasts a large intuitive touchscreen, comes complete with the Cammax Secure Browser, a sophisticated feature that enables would-be diners to scroll through the restaurant’s menus effortlessly and view any special offers.
It is hoped that the roll out of the interactive touchscreen kiosk will enhance the dining experience and aid efficiency, whilst simultaneously acting as a stylish showpiece that will entice new customers.
In a bid to safeguard against the risk of potential misuse, the secure browser technology also restricts access to the internet, whilst the kiosk’s robust and durable design is perfectly suited to high-footfall locations like the iconic York Minster.
Commenting on the project, Cammax MD Julian Rooney said: “We are delighted to have supplied a state-of-the-art touchscreen kiosk with the Cammax Secure Browser to the new York Minster Refectory restaurant”.
“Our innovative kiosk solutions are aimed at improving and enhancing customer experiences, and we are confident that our cutting-edge technology will deliver just that”.
He added: “Cammax continues to focus on innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction, and we look forward to working with the York Minster Refectory restaurant and other businesses in the Yorkshire region to help them achieve their goals.”
The new York Minster Refectory restaurant is the brainchild of renowned Yorkshire-born chef Andrew Pern, who rose to prominence after earning a coveted MICHELIN star at his acclaimed gastropub, the Star Inn at Harome.
Pern is also Chef Patron of the award-winning York city centre eatery The Star Inn The City.
In 2022, plans for opening the York Minster Refectory were given the green light before Pern and other stakeholders teamed up with construction experts GEM to transform the former site of York Minster School.
Following months of painstaking effort, the renovation work was complete, and this historic Grade II listed building has now been transformed into a contemporary brasserie, with the elegantly designed interiors remaining sympathetic to the building’s storied heritage.
The new York Minster Refectory will offer fresh takeaway snacks and refreshments during the day before becoming a 100-cover restaurant during the night. Pern and his team have also revealed that the restaurant will be committed to serving the freshest and finest modern British dishes, with ingredients sourced from the local Yorkshire region.
Speaking ahead of the opening, GEM construction chairman Mike Green said: “This is an ambitious, high quality but accessible restaurant launch in an historically sensitive refurbishment of The Minster School, York, that will benefit the people and the city of York with new jobs and a fabulous restaurant while embracing the vision of the Chapter of York, the governing body for York Minster.”
When asked for his thoughts following the installation of the state-of-the-art outdoor kiosk, Green also added: “We are thrilled with the product supplied. The level of service we have received from Cammax under tight timelines has been exceptional.”
Earlier this month (6th April) the new York Minster Refectory restaurant received a royal seal of approval following a visit from the soon-to-be coronated King Charles. As part of their visit to York for the Royal Maundy Service at York Minster, Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort visited the site of the new restaurant to usher in its formal opening.
During their visit Their Majesties toured the restaurant and its grounds before meeting Andrew Pern and key members of staff. The King also unveiled a plaque celebrating the visit and to commemorate the opening of the restaurant.
