The Gathering Place Community Centre offers programs and services to the Downtown South community. They primarily serve vulnerable populations, including people on lower income, people with disabilities, seniors, people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, the LGBTQ community, youth, and people who are homeless.
They provide accessible and engaging programs with a focus on food and nutrition, health, education, recreation, arts and culture, and community development.
BBS Pro installed a CMA 44 Conveyor Dishwasher, this machine washes 249 racks / 996 covers per hour. The Gathering Place uses an array of BBS Pro chemicals dish soap, rinse, and Grassroots products.
Our experience with BBSpro has surpassed
our expectations. They are very reliable. If we have an issue
with our dishwasher it is resolved within a day which is very
important to us. Previously we owned our dishwasher which
became very expensive due to servicing costs and machine
downtime of up to 3 weeks waiting for parts. BBSpro’s
services and chemical pricing is much more cost effective
than what we were doing previously. Overall our warewash
operation has been a lot smoother and I have recommended
to all the other chefs in other City of Vancouver facilities to
transition to BBSpro’s services when they are ready.
