The Challenge: Rising to the Occasion

At busy times, such as during the Tulip Festival, the brewery faced its most significant challenge yet: meeting the overwhelming demand. With patronage swelling to over 300 people, the existing kitchen operations found themselves stretched to their limits. The need to triple their output became apparent, a daunting task that required both creativity and innovation.

The Wood Stone Fire Deck oven, with its versatility, heat retention, and ability to cook high-volume, high-quality food, became the cornerstone of District Brewing’s solution. Their staff recognized the need for a dramatic shift in operations. With Wood Stone’s culinary team playing an advisory role, they devised a different style of pizza that was enjoyed just as much by their customers and could be produced at a higher volume. The Fire Deck oven, with its ability to maintain heat and increase throughput, reduced downtime, and dramatically increased production.

The results were nothing short of spectacular. District Brewing not only succeeded in meeting the heightened demand but also elevated the overall customer experience. The Wood Stone Fire Deck oven allowed for seamless service, even at peak times, ensuring that every guest could enjoy their movie-themed pizza without undue wait times. This adaptability and commitment to quality under pressure allowed them to open two more locations. Here at Wood Stone, we are happy to see a local business succeed and play a part in it.

Looking Forward

Today, District Brewing stands as a testament to the power of innovation and the importance of adaptability in the hospitality industry. The Wood Stone Fire Deck oven continues to be at the heart of their kitchen, a symbol of their dedication to excellence and a reminder of the pivotal role that technology can play in enhancing culinary operations.
