What our clients have said

What does anyone want from a supplier of goods and services? We all know but rarely get it, especially on first dealings, which is disappointing as it’s the most important first contact. After that you need to feel confident and relaxed that you are getting the service, product knowledge and backup that you expect. CFE have given me exactly that for over 40 years, they build a trusting relationship with you so you don’t have to go anywhere else. Of course I’m talking about the Sweet family and their long serving staff which is a testament to their success.

Leon Saturno
Saturno Hotel Group/Booze Brothers

We have been dealing with CFE for the last 15 years and have never been disappointed. We are a family operated hospitality business. During our 15 years of operations CFE has not only helped us equip 4 cafes and 4 restaurants but also helped us with the design and layout. They have helped us select the most appropriate equipment which hasn’t always been what we had in mind to start with but turned out to be the best choice. Their professionality has been outstanding, and if equipment has failed, they have done whatever they can to help us out by either lending us equipment or sending a technician. CFE is highly recommended, whether you need a full kitchen layout or just the standalone item- CFE are there for you.
