Written by on June 25, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Food businesses are fun to run, with customers walking into satisfying their food cravings. The sight of a happy customer leaving your eatery has a satisfaction of its own. While establishing a food business has pretty much the same protocols as establishing any other business, newbies in this industry often struggle with determining what type of equipment should they be investing in. Here is a list of key equipment and supplies that every eatery should have at all costs.

Commercial Oven

Even if you been running the most amazing cakery from your home, if you are going commercial with an aim to cater to full-scale customer orders, you will need to invest in commercial grade ovens. Regular household ovens do not have the capacity to give the same level of output and quality as the commercial ones.

Meat Slicer

Imagine you serve steaks or chicken fillets, but all your fillets are cut in uneven sizes and shapes. The presentation of food is also one of the most important areas to focus on. Moreover, the perfection of your cut will also ensure that your meat is done evenly rather than being overdone, or undercooked at different places. Even the most expert chefs struggle with making perfect meat slices and that is where a meat-slicers come in. Some meat slicers also come with multi-purpose attachments that can also help you cut vegetables.

Chef Knives

Commercial Refrigerators

Commercial Ice Makers

Once you start off with your eatery, you will realize, how often your customers will be asking for ice, either with a beverage or separately. It is practically impossible to freeze ice cubes, for every time a customer requires them. Do not undermine the need for having commercial ice makers in your kitchen. These marvelous machines make sure that you have a running supply of ice cubes whenever you want.

Commercial Dishwasher

This is a no brainer. There will be lots of dishwashing that will be done at your eatery and a regular household dishwasher cannot cater to that need. Invest in a proper commercial dishwasher that can accommodate a larger number of dishes and can run quicker cycles.

Grease Traps

Installing grease traps can save you from a huge nightmare waiting to happen in your kitchen.

Keeping it All Clean

Cleanliness is an essential part of customer service, and is a key determining factor for the vast majority of your customers when deciding whether they will be repeat customers.
