What You Need to Know to Choose the Right Restaurant Equipment, Charlottesville, Virginia

Opening a restaurant is no easy feat. Finding the right real estate space, crafting a menu, and developing an identity and branding strategy are complicated and critical processes. Fortunately, choosing restaurant equipment for your kitchen is easier. Tech-24 has been installing and servicing commercial kitchen equipment throughout the United States since 1982, so they know what you need. These appliance repair specialists understand that brands and models differ, but the process of selecting equipment tends to be the same for every establishment.

How to Choose Restaurant Equipment

Start With Your Menu

Your menu is the cornerstone of your restaurant equipment choices. Every dish has specific cooking techniques that will determine the appliances you need. Go through your menu and note items that depend on ovens, steamers, fryers, griddles, pizza ovens, and other options. Evaluate every need, from refrigeration to preparation and plating.

Consider Volume

Restaurant equipmentAfter you've broken down your menu and decided the types of restaurant equipment you need, consider the amount of cooking you will do. For example, a restaurant that primarily serves pizza will require more ovens than a typical restaurant, and a sushi restaurant will need more refrigeration equipment. Review your menu to determine the demand you expect for each appliance in your kitchen.

Plan for the Busiest Day

Imagine your eatery filled with diners — will your restaurant equipment let you keep up with serving them? Unless you opened a pop-up restaurant to conduct market research, you probably won’t know what dishes will be popular with customers when you’re first starting out. Make sure your kitchen can handle a large workload without waiting times for equipment that would cause delays for diners.

When you're ready to have your commercial range, convection oven, heat lamps, and other restaurant equipment installed, choose the right company to handle the job. With locations in cities across the nation and more than 500 skilled service technicians, Tech-24 is an excellent choice. Visit their website to find a location near you and learn about their products and services, including commercial kitchen equipment repair.
