Tips for Choosing the Right Commercial Kitchen Solution for Your Restaurant

by Deepak Kumar Thakur Digital Marketer

It can sometimes take months or longer to design, plan, build, allow, transport and set up a more complex or more extensive commercial kitchen solution than one would have done from scratch. Planning well in advance of time will ensure no problems and no downtime. Often, there are tricky issues like competing architectural designs, access to utilities and space for prep space and storage facilities. Disruptive technology in restaurants usually means a temporary solution until the permanent solution is found. Disruptive technology in restaurants is more common in fast food chains and less often in fine dining.

The advantages of a commercial kitchen renovation over a complete remodel depend on what is to be changed and why. Disruptive technology in restaurants is not about changing the look of the place but more about changing the way things are done. This can include new equipment, a new way of doing things, menu options, working procedures, menu advertising and price point. It may also mean adding a retail outlet or liquor store, which adds up to increased revenues.

One restaurant in San Francisco has added "Robo eaters" to its existing kitchens. These machines can make pizza, chilli and burritos in bulk for the restaurants' take out customers. The San Francisco Examiner called this "a brave new world." Robo eateries in other California fast food outlets are also referred to as "Robo eaters".

The advantages of this kind of system for Disruptive technology in restaurants use are that it takes up very little space and does most of the work for you, which is a big plus with these days of shrinking kitchens. The downside, of course, is that it costs almost double what a traditional kitchen set-up would cost, even after considering the custom made equipment and labour costs.

This kind of kitchen renovation for new construction can add two to three times the value of your total remodelling budget. A restaurant can increase its value by hundreds of thousands of dollars simply by incorporating a more efficient kitchen. You'll quickly get an idea about what your kitchen renovation will have by looking at real estate prices in the area where you plan to build or by using the information provided on the website.

A popular renovation is a conversion from one room to another, such as moving a break room to a kitchen or converting an eating area into a bar and creating a family room. While this would seem like a complex and expensive project, most of these kitchen renovations have a very high success rate. For example, a report published by the Society of Home Builders found that single rooms added with new appliances and custom made equipment increased the sale value of a property by between thirty and forty per cent in most cases. In addition, research indicates that homes that are remodelled using state-of-the-art kitchens rather than remodelled conventional kitchen units increase in value by an average of twenty per cent over the first five years.

Another simple way to increase the value of your restaurant is to add a commercial kitchen that can accommodate a full complement of employees. Most commercial kitchen solutions offer a twenty-four-hour on-premises management service, which allows the cook to focus on preparing food.

In contrast, the management team schedules deliveries, pick up food ingredients and clean up after customers. Commercial kitchen solutions also often include high-speed internet access for ordering and monitoring orders, ample prep space, a fully stocked refrigerator, and an extensive range of professional cutlery and speciality foods. As a result, many restaurants can quickly and efficiently serve customers their best dishes without having the luxury of an actual kitchen on site. Modern commercial kitchen designs can provide the customer with a delicious meal in less time. In addition, they can save the restaurant money by allowing employees to focus on their core cooking and food preparation business.
