The right equipment for quick service restaurants is essential for a smooth operation; it can help you save time and increase efficiency. Customers dining at your establishment want a fast and quality meal. Here are some key pieces of equipment you’ll need to serve your customers in record time:

Ice Ice Baby – Refrigeration Equipment

Commercial refrigeration is a vital piece of equipment for any restaurant. It’s where perishable food items like meat, dairy, and produce are stored. There are many different styles, from reach-in refrigerators to walk-in coolers. The type will depend on the size of your kitchen and how many customers you plan to serve daily.

Also, as consumers continue to seek out healthy and made-to-order food creations like salads, bowls, and sandwiches, prepping ingredients ahead of time keeps the lunch and dinner rush moving seamlessly. Proteins and grilled vegetables can be prepped and cooked in an oven like the MiLO, quickly chilled in a commercial fridge, and ready for hotel pans in a Refrigerated Drop-In Well.

Heat Waves – 100% Ventless Ovens

Depending on the type of food that will be served, you may need a variety of cooking equipment, such as fryers, grills, ovens, and steamers. The available kitchen prep space will also determine the type of equipment. A multi-functional piece of equipment like an Ovention oven can save space, money, and labor.

The Matchbox features our innovative precision impingement technology, which allows the user to customize the cooking time, independent blower speeds, and temperature for each menu item. Additionally, the internal temperature can flex up to 50 degrees between menu items without downtime. With the touch of a button, this oven’s patented auto load and unload technology moves the cooking surface into the cavity to begin the cook cycle. Once the cook cycle is complete, food will automatically exit the cooking cavity and automatically load the next menu item to cook. This means no more burnt food and frees the kitchen staff to prep the next menu item for cooking—a great option for locations serving a variety of menu items ranging from quesadillas to boneless chicken wings.

Those looking for a closed cavity oven and conveyor will find the Shuttle is the perfect solution for both these needs. This oven combines the throughput benefits of a conveyor and the precision cooking needed from closed cavity cooking. When operating in “Shuttle Mode,” the cooking cavity becomes enclosed, allowing the user to program the top and bottom blower speeds separately for each menu item. The closed cavity holds moisture in food products while cooking 30% faster than a traditional countertop unit. Perfect for both back-of-house service prep and front-of-house made-to-order types of service.

Ovention ovens are great for quick service environments because several dishes can be prepared simultaneously within a compact oven with little downtime between menu items. These ovens are 100% ventless, making installation possible in even the smallest kitchens, and allow a wide range of menu items to be cooked while still delivering high-quality food. They are also more energy efficient than traditional countertop ovens, which has the added benefit of producing less heat in the kitchen.

I Want To Hold Your Ham – Heated Holding Solutions

Once menu items are perfectly cooked, you’ll need the right equipment to hold food at a consistent and safe temperature. Hatco holding cabinets are perfect for holding hot foods in the back of the house at safe-serving temperatures for longer, allowing staff to jump-start on busy meal rushes. Quick service establishments offering grab and food items should consider Hatco hot food display cases and merchandisers for customers looking for on-the-go options. These display cases hold food at the right temperature for serving without overcooking while taking up minimal countertop space.
