The kitchen is the heart of a restaurant. Customers don't see it (in most cases), but the food which comes out of it is what they have come for. For the staff, it's where they work. For the business owner, it's where the success or failure of the business is determined. To produce the dishes those customers come for and keep them coming back for more, the equipment must work properly.
Refrigeration is a key element in a commercial kitchen. From the walk-in to the reach-in, maintaining the proper temperature is critical. Food spoilage can cost you thousands. Not to mention loss of repeat customers.
Ice machines are another important piece of equipment. Producing ice that is clean and in sufficient quantity to keep up with demand. Maintaining and repairing these systems is not something left to chance.
What about the air quality and comfort? Do these factors affect the performance of your staff? The dining experience for your customers? Without a doubt. Smoke and grease hoods which do not remove contaminants properly, not only make for an uncomfortable environment, but one that is unsafe as well. Grease buildup on kitchen surfaces can be a fire hazard and also a slip and fall hazard. Odors and even smoke can emanate from a kitchen when the exhaust system is not working properly, causing customers discomfort. In the hospitality industry, one bad experience can cost you more than just one customer. An improperly adjusted kitchen exhaust system can suck out the conditioned air from not only the kitchen, but the entire restaurant, creating uncomfortable temperatures and costing you money with loss of repeat customers, higher utility bills and lost productivity from your staff.
The kitchen - it makes more than food, it makes you money.
