One of the biggest investments that goes into keeping your restaurant equipment costs down, is the ability to be flexible at a moments notice. Opening a new restaurant or re-tooling your existing business to accomodate catering, food trucks, and take out means having the right commercial equipment to do the job. A commercial kitchen needs industrial-grade equipment that can withstand busy restaurant use. The layout of a commercial restaurant kitchen must be planned to allow food to flow seamlessly from the prep area to the line. Changes mean growth and increased income. Let Main Auction Services help you with this project plan.
If you are considering investing in state of the art commercial restaurant equipment, or need traditional kitchen foodservice grade parts, and may have a small kitchen then consider calling Main Auction Services. The kitchen size, design, and location in the establishment will dictate the kind of kitchen equipment needed. You may really want the six-burner gas range with a convection oven, but, in reality, your kitchen will only fit a four-burner range. Remember that it is important to think strategically about your kitchen well before you sign a lease.
Role of the Restaurant Kitchen -
The commercial restaurant kitchen is the heart of your restaurant; and the place where your menu comes to life for all those special dining patrons. It’s where food is prepared, cooked, and plated. It's the center of the action in many other ways as well. The kitchen is typically home to the dishwasher, your food ingredients, and all the various utensils, dishes, and cooking equipment that is required to serve quality food in your dining establishment.
The restaurant kitchen can have dozens of people coming and going throughout any given shift, so it’s important to make sure that it is organized well. This not only saves time during the busy rushes, but it also helps the staff avoid accidents and reduces excess waste. All types of plumbing equipment, sinks, faucets, ice machines, cleaning supplies, and more are also very important issues that can also provide your restaurant with what is needed.
Commercial Kitchen Costs -
Often the biggest expenses for most restaurants is the commercial kitchen. A $250,000 loan might seem like a lot of money when you are first getting ready to open, but it can run out quickly after you've invested in new, or even used, ranges, grills, ovens, and coolers. Brand name equipment manufacturers, bar equipment, cooking equipment, refrigeration equipment, preparation, glassware, dinnerware, furnishing, furniture, sanitation, and storage equipment lines are always a necessity anywhere you prepare food for the public.
If you purchase new or used restaurant kitchen equipment, remember that, just as with a new car, these items depreciate the moment they leave the showroom. One way to save money during the rampup process may be to consider used kitchen equipment and supplies for pennies on the dollar. Main Auction Services specializes in being able to do that..
