Installations

Building even more brand value

Hobart's unique installation capability lets us provide outstanding installation support throughout the entire U.S. market, enhancing the value of our equipment for national chains, food retailers, dealers/distributors, and customers alike. Only Hobart has the ability to ramp up staff and production, delivery and installation of food equipment without downtime and within a required timeframe, regardless of the scale of the job.

Rapid Rollout Installation

We needed 1,200 scales in 200 stores, including all newly programmed firmware...And Hobart had it all installed in eight weeks.

Hobart is the only company capable of ramping up to meet an aggressive new mass product rollout, technology upgrade or replacement schedule for national retailers. With the resources to immediately enhance our manufacturing capability while maintaining superior quality standards, we have the capability to build and deliver the needed products when our clients need them. Hobart's dedicated service network supports installation across the nation to ensure the affected stores can continue to operate with no downtime. Hobart then applies economies of scale to add value through vendor efficiencies and service economics.

  • Well-planned pilots to determine best overall rollout process with related scripts and documentation.
  • Established best practices to address major issues in complicated rollouts.
  • Nationwide service organization ensures rollout consistency across geographies.
  • Comprehensive rollout IT support, managing networking, software, firmware, encryption, cabling, documentation/scripting and more.

Partnering with Foodservice Dealers and Distributors

Hobart's service organization can serve as a backup or alternative installer for those dealers/distributors with in-house installation crews. Our primary focus on the "replacement" market allows dealers/distributors to target their in-house resources on the more complex new construction and major remodel market.

Single Contact Point

When Hobart is involved in every aspect of the equipment start-up, life is simpler for both the dealer/distributor and customer. All information is easily obtained from one accountable source, and issues are quickly resolved.

Trained Technicians

Our service technicians have been specially trained to install Hobart equipment. With better technical knowledge and access to special tools, proper documentation, and technical support, they can identify and resolve potential problems on the spot.

Assured Compliance with Machine Specifications

Because our company designs and manufactures the equipment, we can ensure that all Hobart equipment installations are completed per the latest specifications and up-to-date technical information.

Nationwide Installation Capability

We provide coast-to-coast equipment staging and installation programs through nearly 200 field offices. Whether you're in a large metro area or small rural town, you never have to worry about coordinating the equipment installation.

Flexible Scheduling

Hobart service will work with you to schedule installations during time periods that minimize disruption of normal foodservice operations.

Extended Warewasher Warranty

Because installing a Hobart warewasher can be a complicated task, we encourage the direct involvement of a Hobart technician. That's why we automatically extend our customers' equipment warranty to a full 18 months (vs. the standard 12 months) when we install a Hobart warewasher.

Warranty Dates Established

Positively establishing a "start date" for manufacturer warranty coverage can be difficult due to the amount of time the equipment is carried in dealer inventory prior to final customer installation. When Hobart Service is involved in installation, it's simple to positively establish the warranty start date.

Minimized Freight Claims

A Hobart service technician is in the best position to recognize if a component part or accessory is missing during installation. If a part or accessory is required, the technician can access parts from his service van or local inventory to quickly resolve the problem without freight shortage claims, paperwork, or extra coordination.
