Whether your restaurant is expanding or simply in need of repairs, establishing an efficient kitchen design is crucial to the success of the renovation. With careful planning, the Encore Construction team can ensure that your new commercial kitchen works with your team, rather than against it. Start the remodeling process off right with these four tips for an efficient commercial kitchen.
Bring In The Chef
No one knows what needs to be in your kitchen and where it should go better than your chef. Along with the flow being wrong for efficient work, you may find that your kitchen isn’t big enough, has the wrong front to backspace ratio, and it may even mean you have the wrong equipment.
Consider Your Menu
Your menu should be the basis of your kitchen design. It helps you to plan what equipment you need based on the things you make. Not only does this ensure that you have what you need to make everything, but it helps keep you from investing in products and equipment that will just wind up gathering dust.
Lose The Clutter
Kitchens can become chaotic at times, from urgent orders and backlogs of dishes and more. Ensuring that you have space to work amidst it all is critical. Every so often, take some time to look around and think about what products and equipment you have that are essentials and which ones you could possibly do without.
Understand Health Codes
Last but not least, become very familiar with your federal, state, and local health codes before you begin your designs. There are many different features and factors that you may need to consider when planning that can make a massive difference to your local food safety regulator. Knowing the specifics before you build can save you a significant amount of heartache.
