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
. 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.
