From choosing your restaurant concept to menu curation to layout and design, these choices and purchases are critical to your restaurant’s success. Whether you’re shopping for the front-of-house or back-of-the-house, the equipment you purchase is a long-term investment. In addition, your choices impact the food quality and help determine your staff’s workflow and output. So what should you consider to help you make the best choice? Let’s take a look at some tips to make the process easier.
While purchasing the cheapest kitchen equipment available is tempting, this can have long-term financial consequences. Opting for the lowest-priced option can mean more breakdowns, which leads to unaccounted-for repair costs, staff frustration, and slower output. The combination of these things can affect customer satisfaction.
A great place to start is by outlining your kitchen requirements and seeing what suits your operation. Your kitchen floor plan will ultimately determine your space for prepping and cooking your dishes. Choosing expensive, oversized commercial kitchen equipment can not only be costly but can mess up the flow of your kitchen staff. This Oven Quiz can help you find the best cooking solution for your situation.
While it’s normal to be focused on your return on investment, there are many critical factors you should consider besides the upfront costs:
If you’re not the one doing the menu planning and cooking, it’s best to get input from your head chef. They can give insight into what features are essential to cooking your desired menu. Purchasing equipment with fancy specs that will not be utilized can be a waste of your limited budget. Want to get a second opinion? Schedule a culinary consultation with our first-class chefs. They can help you with menu development and equipment installation.
Choosing Energy Star rated products will help reduce your power consumption and utility bills. This Energy Savings Chart can help you see how much energy your operation will utilize during a typical business day.
Time is money. Take the time to check specs like BTUs, RPM, and hourly output; it is important that the unit matches your expectations. Our handy Pizza Calculator can help determine if the equipment can keep up with your busy operation.
What’s more frustrating than your equipment breaking down? Not being able to reach a human to assist you with those unexpected equipment failures. Consider the type of customer service available for the equipment you choose.
