Merlin Buffet Systems (MBS) was conceived in November 1995 and began trading in January 1996.
Officially launching at Hotelympia 96 in Earls Court, London, the launch was successful and forced the first move after only three months. Continued success has since forced three further moves to larger premises moving to the present site in January 2017.
By securing distribution rights for a revolutionary, stacking buffet system predominately aimed at the 4 and 5 hotel groups, MBS embarked on revolutionising the way buffets were produced, stored and transported.
The systems success in Europe facilitated the marketing in the UK, ‘opening doors’ and allowing MBS to introduce other revolutionary and innovative ideas along with new designs, developments from around the world. With the continually growing range, Merlin positioned itself as a premier supplier for hotel and restaurant group standards in food presentations.
