Effective Strategies to Maximize Space in Your Commercial Kitchen



When planning a wedding one of your tasks may be to find and book a reputable caterer. Delicious food is important to having a memorable event. Many catering companies offer tastings for prospective couples to try their food. These caterers should be mindful when choosing their space to entertain clients. There are so may things to keep in mind when finding the perfect kitchen to prepare meals for event guests. 

Nowadays, food is not only a necessity but a source of experience. People love to try new dishes and derive pleasure from it. Many aspiring business owners jump into the food industry. They have new concepts of food presentation and restaurant ambiance to offer.

But space is one of the considerations of having a new restaurant. Not all can start with a big commercial space. The kitchen is one of the areas where one can maximize space. Here are some strategies to do this:

Get the Right Equipment

To help you decide, you may consult a good kitchen equipment supplier. They can provide you with the proper equipment according to your specifications. They may also help you plan or give you choices on what equipment will work best for your kitchen.

There is some basic but non-negotiable equipment to start your restaurant business. One thing that you must also keep in mind is to pick commercial equipment over residential equipment. The work that your restaurant needs will wear down household equipment. Another way to maximize space in your kitchen is to use multi-functional equipment.

Look at Your Storage Space

When dealing with storage space, think of different options for your cold and dry storage. Refrigerators with sliding glass doors are a practical alternative to those with conventional side-hinged doors. Under-counter fridges are good space-savers, too.

For dry storage, there is a wide range of stackable containers on the market. Always make sure that everything has proper labels and codes. Empty vertical spaces are good areas for non-food storage. Kitchen pans, pots, and other tools can be stored in hanging racks or cabinets. This strategy is also a time-saver. Everything is just within reach. Check the weight capacity of these installations to ensure safety. Also, choose prep tables that have a provision for storage underneath.

Direct a Good Flow

A good kitchen layout helps create a seamless food preparation. Organize your kitchen well. Food must be handled naturally from preparation, production, and service areas. Prep stations should have both the storage and the cooking station nearby. This layout avoids backtracking and eliminates heavy kitchen traffic.

Comfort and effectiveness must be considered when following a good kitchen layout. When tasks are completed with ease, clutter and chaos are minimized. Thus, space will be maximized.

Train the Staff

Equipment and tools are not the only factors to consider. On a regular day, your staff will go in and out of your kitchen area. Being clear on the workflow inside the kitchen will help maximize space. Proper training on how things should be done will ensure that nobody is stepping on another person's toe literally and figuratively. Avoiding clutter is also a good way to save space. Train your employees to always clean any equipment, tools, and the area right after use.

A potential restaurant owner usually is caught up with concepts for the dining area. It is only natural to think of this because it is what your customers would see. Still, having a functional kitchen means that there is a good production of food. This will reflect on what is on the plates. Good production does not need to be compromised by a small space. Careful planning will turn those small spaces into functioning areas.
