Holiday parks offering self catering accommodation in lodges or villas, as well as static caravan parking or space for towed caravans, mobile homes and camping, often provide an element of on site catering for groups or families who don't wish to cook their own food every night during their stay (or even cook any at all). Smaller campsites and caravan parks may simply have a small shop that also sells a few packaged sandwiches, pasties, pies and cakes, for which a range of refrigerated countertop units, chiller cabinets and heated merchandisers, as well as a commercial microwave or two, should be sufficient. Ice cream chiller displays are also popular in holiday park shops.
Other large holiday parks may have a full cafe on site, or even a leisure complex with several restaurants either directly managed by the holiday park or franchised. The specific equipment required by a particular holiday park catering business will depend on the exact nature of the food being served and the type of service - refer to the following sector guides for further advice on appropriate appliances.
