So you’re thinking about getting into the restaurant business. You have the perfect location selected, you know what kind of food and experience you want to provide, and you even have a few investors interested! Now it’s time to get into the logistics of what starting a restaurant would require, given you aren’t purchasing a space already fit with equipment.
First, you need to purchase a commercial gas range. This stovetop is the workhorse that your entire restaurant will rely on. If you have the space, it’s worth a buy. Not only will it last you for decades, but it has multi-functional capacities and comes with an oven to do the grunt of your restaurant work.
Next, you’ll need a good fridge. We like a large reach-in refrigerator to start things out in a new space. Purchase a solid door reach-in refrigerator for more durability, or a glass door reach-in refrigerator for more aesthetics. These types of refrigerators can hold enormous quantities of food and use hydrocarbon refrigerant to keep your ingredients fresh - crucial for passing that first restaurant inspection exam.
Beyond a stove and a good fridge, other important items to consider when creating a restaurant kitchen are multiple stove-tops, bar equipment, specialty cooking equipment, commercial broilers, breakfast equipment, and deep fryers. Depending on the functionality of your restaurant, your needs for these items can flux. Our team is always available to chat about your restaurant needs. If you’re starting from scratch or building on an older restaurant’s kitchen, we can help. Write us on our website www.restaurantsupply.com or call us at 855-838-1010 for all your restaurant’s needs.
