If You Are Opening A New Restaurant, Hire A Consultant
So, you’ve decided to open a restaurant! Congratulations! We are certain you have been dreaming about this day for months, years, maybe even decades. We know you have been imagining the people flooding your new dining room to enjoy the fantastic cuisine prepared by you and your team. You have probably spent hours upon hours daydreaming about dining room décor, seating, color schemes, and probably even cooking equipment. We know that by now you probably have a great idea of the food you will be serving, and the atmosphere in which your guests will be enjoying it.
How A Consultant Can Help With The Details Of A New Restaurant
We know that you have thought of just about everything. But, have you thought about the best way to lay out your kitchen in your new space? Have you identified what will be the best route to bring your food to a safe temperature in the right amount of time? What about the best shape of your ice cubes? The most efficient walk in cooler? Do you need a high temp dishwasher? Or a low temp dishwasher? Is there a floor drain in close proximity to the dish area? Have you thought about how your tables will be sanitized? Where will your employees hang their coats?
We understand that these things are not glorious and fun at times, but they are necessary topics to consider.
We will let you dream about the atmosphere, the drinks, and the menu; you let us help find ways to make your restaurant the most functional space possible.
Design And Planning Consultation
The first thing we will need is a drawing of your space, a pdf is fine. A member of our sales and/or design team will then begin to ask questions to gain a better understanding of the dream you are trying to make a reality. These questions will range from “what’s on the menu?”, to “how much of an emphasis will be on the bar?”. We will try to establish a concept that will pave the way for a better understanding of what you will need.
Maximizing The Flow
Once we have the opportunity to nail down your vision, we will then begin to move towards the overall flow of your space. For example, What is the best way for patrons to enter/exit your establishment? Can we design the kitchen in a way that the wait staff is not bumping into the line cook on a busy Friday night service? What is the path of least resistance for dirty dishes and so on?
Equipment Planning And Consultation
Then, we will move to what equipment will you need? We will take the time to walk through your menu items to determine what pieces of equipment will be crucial to your menu. We will give insight into the size of equipment necessary to feed the number of guests anticipated in your dining area. We will discuss equipment consolidation. Do you need both a convection oven and a steamer? Or just one combi oven? Do you need just a microwave? Or a speed oven? Will you need just an equipment stand? Or a refrigerated chef’s base? An overshelf or a salamander?

I can imagine that a business could really benefit from getting the right equipment in order to make sure that they can be more effective while making food. Making sure that they can buy equipment from a professional could allow them to have a more effective restaurant. It was interesting to learn about how they can help turn the area into a functional space by considering how they should sanitize the tables, where employees can put their things, and the more efficient walk-in cooler.
I like that you talked about how there will be a part of the process where the right size of the equipment will be chosen. I guess restaurant kitchens should really be handled by professionals. It's to place the equipment at the right area and to ensure that the space would be maximized for faster processes when finally opening your restaurant.

I like how you mentioned that continuing the process is better after you know your vision. A couple of nights ago, my sister told me that she and her business partners were hoping to find a new refrigerator and freezer as they are adding a new menu in their restaurant, and she asked if I had any idea where would be the best option to buy them. Thanks to this instructive article, I'll be sure to tell her that it will be much better if they consult a trusted commercial kitchen equipment service as they can help provide more information about the equipment they sell.

It was most captivating when you shared that a consultant can optimize your kitchen workflow. My friend wants to rent a kitchen for their business needs. I should advise him to look for a business kitchen rental that fits their needs.
