Carlos Torres from El Capricho de los Torres and Advisory Chef Grupo Abrasador

Carlos Torres, chef del restaurante Abrasador El Capricho de Los Torres, situado en el municipio toledano de Villacañas y asesor gastronómico del Grupo Abrasador, nos cuenta en esta entrevista cuáles son las claves para conseguir el éxito en un restaurante.

Natural de Villacañas, Carlos Torres ha dedicado toda su vida al sector de la restauración: “Mi trayectoria profesional comenzó en la empresa familiar, creada por mi padre hace 37 years, que en la actualidad ofrece servicios de hostelería, catering, organización de bodas, events, etc. Todo empezó con un negocio de “bar tradicional”, que con el paso del tiempo fue evolucionando hasta convertirnos en un grupo hostelero de referencia en la zona, tras apostar por la alta calidad y la cocina de vanguardia” destaca Torres.

Formado en Escuela de Hostelería de Toledo, este chef ha trabajado en diferentes restaurantes y esto le ha permitido “aprender de los mejores hosteleros”, tal y como él mismo manifiesta. Actualmente dirige la cocina del restaurante Abrasador El Capricho de Los Torres y también es miembro de la Asociación Eurotoques Castilla- La Mancha, y forma parte de la Junta Directiva de la Provincial Association of Hotel and Tourism Toledo.

Toda una vida dedicada al sector de la restauración, Carlos nos cuenta sus secretos mejores guardados, porque como subraya este empresario, “la hostelería es su forma de vida, su talento, su pasión…”

“Sin duda, lo que más me gusta en el mundo es hacer felices a los demás y esto lo consigo gracias a la gastronomía. No necesito nada más”

Carlos, hablemos de tu restaurante. ¿Cuándo se creó y qué características tiene?

Abrasador El Capricho de las Torres, antes llamado Restaurante Torres, se construyó con el objetivo de dar, especially, el servicio de comida para las empresas, siempre orientado hacia una hostelería de alta calidad.

Tras la crisis del 2008, mis hermanos y yo decidimos reconvertir el restaurante hacia un nuevo formato de hostelería que, en esos momentos estaba triunfando en Madrid, y fue entonces cuando introducimos el concepto de gastrobar, con el objetivo de conseguir un espacio de cocina moderna más dedicado a la gastronomía en sí.

On the other hand, en esos momentos comenzó a llevarse el concepto de brasa, cada vez eran más las grandes recetas que se hacían mediante este tipo técnica. Fue ahí cuando conocimos al Grupo Abrasador, a la familia Ramírez. Primero, probamos su producto, y a partir de ese instante, nos dimos cuenta de que el cliente nos exigía cada vez más ese género, ese buen producto que nos ofrecía el Grupo Abrasador, y tras unos meses decidimos asociarnos a ellos.

At present, nuestra cocina se podría describir como una cocina moderna con ciertos toques de vanguardia y brasa. Y qué te voy a decir, la verdad es que estamos contentísimos con la decisión que tomamos con la familia Ramírez.

En Abrasador El Capricho de Los Torres podemos llegar a los 350 comensales en la zona del restaurante, además contamos con otros espacios como, for example, la zona de “tapería”, que podríamos describirlo como el “espacio bar de siempre” y, por último, tenemos la zona “gastro”, donde nuestros clientes pueden disfrutar de raciones al centro para compartir.

That is to say, hemos adaptado nuestros espacios para que nuestros clientes no vengan a nuestro restaurante exclusivamente para comer, sino que puedan disfrutar de nuestro establecimiento siempre que quieran porque para eso “somos multiespacio”. (Risas).

Tu restaurante se ha convertido en un caso de éxito del Grupo Abrasador, What can you tell me about it?

Yo diría que esto es posible gracias a la dedicación y a la pasión que ponemos en todo lo que hacemos. También creo que es muy importante nuestra gestión del personal, no hay nada peor que no saber lo que estás haciendo, por mucha motivación que tengas. Se podría decir que nosotros combinamos la pasión con la gestión.

¿Por qué es importante contar con una buena política de calidad en sector de la restauración?

Actualmente ya no salimos a comer, comer lo hemos dejado para el día a día. Ahora lo que buscamos en un restaurante es la experiencia que nos ofrece pero, Of course, si a la hora de la verdad no tienes un producto de calidad que te respalde, los clientes no volverán.

Con el Grupo Abrasador yo sé que la calidad está garantizada y a mí eso me da tranquilidad, antes iba a la carnicería y me vendían lo que querían, pero ahora gracias al producto, que siempre es el mismo, conseguimos fidelizar a nuestro cliente.

¿Qué diferencia a tu restaurante del resto de establecimientos de la zona?

Yo diría que nuestra identidad nos hace diferentes. Gracias a esto nosotros podemos servir experiencias. Tenemos claro un objetivo y ese es nuestro cliente. Hoy en día la hostelería tradicional ha cambiado y hay dos opciones: o tienes identidad, o eres uno más y, ¡ya es muy difícil ser el mejor!

Sinceramente, yo creo que no hay que intentar ser el mejor, hay que intentar ser diferente para que no te comparen. Cuando nosotros ponemos nuestro producto en la mesa, nadie puede compararnos con los demás, porque nuestros clientes se marchan con una experiencia.

¿Tienes algún objetivo próximo?

En estos momentos tan complicados es difícil hablar de objetivos o retos próximos. En nuestra empresa teníamos en mente poner en marcha un nuevo proyecto “agricultura para procesar el pistacho” pero esto a día de hoy ha cambiado.

Ahora mismo nuestro principal objetivo es salvar el año, atender a la gente lo mejor posible y, especially, cuidar a nuestro personal. En estos momentos los empresarios tenemos que dar lo mejor de nosotros mismos porque al final el equipo es el 80 por ciento del trabajo. Creo que los números este año no van a ser buenos y por eso hay que pensar en nosotros y cuidar de nuestro equipo. Sin duda nuestro objetivo es a día de hoy más personal que profesional.

Ahora hablemos de vuestra relación con el Grupo Abrasador

How many years have you been associated with scorching brand? 

Conocimos a la familia Ramírez en el año 2015. Y fue en el año 2016 cuando nos asociamos al grupo. He de afirmar que esta decisión nos ha cambiado la vida, nos ha cambiado el concepto de pensar, gracias en parte a las formaciones que se imparten desde la cadena. Somos una family Y juntos hemos aprendido a gestionar el trabajo en equipo para todo salga bien, independientemente del producto, que también es muy importante y, como ya he dicho anteriormente, los comensales salen encantados (risas); junto a Abrasador hemos crecido de la mano tanto a nivel personal como profesional.

What do you think are the keys to success of your restaurant?

Pasión: trabajar con pasión es la clave del éxito laboral.

Constancia: Pablo Picasso dijo que somos un 10 por ciento inspiración y un 90 por ciento trabajo, entonces creo que la constancia forma parte de las claves para conseguir ese éxito.

Humildad: la verdad absoluta no la tiene nadie y gracias a la humildad podemos seguir aprendiendo. Creo que todos aportamos conocimientos e ideas y sin la humildad no podemos aprender.

Pasión y entusiasmo por el trabajo
Carlos Torres sirviendo uno de sus platos en Abrasador

Have you had a sales increase in recent years? 

Sí y no, nosotros desde el primer día que abrimos el restaurante como gastrobar en 2014 siempre hemos funcionado muy bien, si bien es cierto que cuando cambiamos de la cocina molecular a la cocina Abrasador sí que notamos que la gente repetía más.

Nosotros desde hace unos años tenemos un público muy de fin de semana, personas que vienen desde Madrid, que están acostumbradas a este tipo de cocina, y por eso le gusta nuestro restaurante, pero ahora también tenemos a las familias que vienen a celebrar cualquier tipo de evento, o simplemente un grupo de personas que busca reunirse y nos elige.

What values ​​you highlight this Restaurant Group?

Pasión, constancia, humildad, capacidad para crear equipo y, especially, yo les definiría como family, familia es la que palabra que mejor les describe. Todos los establecimientos que formamos parte del grupo somos familia Abrasador y esto lo entendemos así porque todos tenemos una cosa en común: no trabajamos solo por el dinero y esa es la base para conseguir el éxito. El tema económico es una consecuencia que viene, que está ahí, y que por supuesto es necesario, pero no es la clave principal.

La hostelería es una forma de vida y a todos nosotros nos encanta lo que hacemos

What you are positioned as in your city?

En Tripadvisor y Google estamos posicionados como el restaurante número 2, y nuestra puntuación es del 4.6.

¿It is important for a restaurant your online reputation and digitization? Why?

Como persona a la que le gusta aprender, yo siempre he tenido un debate interno con este tema. Yo al principio no apostaba por este tipo de herramientas, prefería la comunicación offline, el boca a boca de toda la vida, pero con el paso del tiempo nos hemos dado cuenta de que el cliente ha cambiado y esto significa que ya no solo tenemos clientes de Villacañas, sino que también tenemos clientes externos de otros pueblos.

Por lo tanto, tanto yo como el resto del equipo hemos aprendido que contar con una buena reputación online es algo básico y que la puerta de nuestro restaurante no es de cristal, it's digital. Cuando te pones a analizar detenidamente lo que hace uno mismo en su vida diaria, es cuando te das cuenta de que si sales a comer a algún sitio, lo primero que haces es llamar a un conocido y, en segundo lugar, buscar en internet, leer los comentarios y también leer las respuestas del propietario.

A día de hoy yo entiendo que es tan importante la reputación digital, como encender la cafetera por las mañanas, en ese orden, porque si no tienes una buena reputación digital seguirás siendo uno más, tendrás clientes fijos, que con el tiempo se irán cansando, porque las personas demandan cambios. Definitely, las críticas buenas nos pueden ayudar mucho, pero las malas nos pueden ayudar todavía más… y, , la reputación online es importantísima.

And to end, como chef asesor del Grupo ¿crees que en el mundo de la restauración hace falta un poco más de formación en el sector? Why?

Of course, en nuestro caso un 10% de nuestro presupuesto anual, sea el que sea, lo destinamos a la formación, ya sean libros, cursos, seminarios, escapadas gastronómicas que nos sirvan de aprendizaje… 

Hay que tener en cuenta que la formación es básica, no hay vida sin formación, llevo siendo cocinero desde los 13 años y no he parado de formarme nunca, porque cocinar es fácil, lo difícil es poder combinar todas las emociones y gestionarlas dentro de una empresa. Sin formación no podríamos hacer eso. Tanto para la cocina, como para la gestión de un equipo, de un restaurante, o incluso para la gestión digital… la formación es básica.
