Circl-Serv™ Cafeteria

Serving More Food to More People in Less Time with a Minimum of Labor

Circl-Serv™ is literally a counter revolution in food service. Unlike a straight line counter layout, where patrons slide a tray along (as fast as the slowest person ahead will allow), Circl-Serv brings the food to the customer, quickly.

In fact, with the wheel divided into thirds, a patron can make his selection in seconds. In that time, a complete menu will have come past a customer station — soup, casseroles, entrees and vegetables, warmed constantly by travelling overhead heaters, while salads, beverages and cold desserts are in the chilled section. Sandwiches, pastries and other snacks are carried in adjoining room temperature sections.

In addition to serving more food to more people, Circl-Serv installations are reporting significant reductions in labor costs. But, that isn't too surprising since man's invention, the wheel, as embodied in the Circl-Serv food service system, was designed to save time and labor.
