How to select value for money commercial kitchen equipment

commercial-kitchen-equipment

Whether you are opening a new establishment or renovating your existing restaurant or café, one of your main purchases will always be the commercial kitchen equipment. In fact, since this equipment can take up a large part of your kitchen budget in Sydney, it’s important that you choose wisely.

So to help you select the best value for money equipment, here are five questions to ask yourself before making your purchases.


1.  What’s the cost of the kitchen equipment?

If you are on a tight budget, then cost might be your priority. This should, however, be tempered with quality, because there’s no point in buying poor quality kitchen equipment, just because it’s cheap.

2.  Does your kitchen have enough space for the equipment?

Th design features of any good commercial kitchen are ease of use, efficiency and safety, but you also need sufficient space for your equipment. With the right plan to hand, you can select the best commercial kitchen equipment for your space.

3.  Is this the best quality you can afford on your budget?

On a limited budget, you might not be able to buy the best of everything. So buy equipment with multiple uses and splash out on one or two essential, but high quality, items.

4.  Is the commercial kitchen equipment easy to use and clean?

The commercial kitchen equipment you purchase needs to be easily cleaned and easy to use. So do some research into your preferred items, making sure they are not difficult to operate and can be cleaned quickly and efficiently.

5.  Do you need advice refitting your commercial kitchen?

Designing an efficient kitchen with a good work flow and finding the right suppliers can be difficult, even if you are an experienced chef. So you might want to consider engaging a kitchen designer for your project. Someone who can help with the layout of your kitchen, select the best value for money equipment, and locate reliable suppliers.

Top 6 hospitality fitout trends in Sydney for 2021

Are you considering a hospitality fitout in Sydney this year?

Updating your restaurant isn’t something that’s taken lightly, but with the impact of the virus on the industry, it actually makes good business sense.

This is because you need to attract both old and new customers to your restaurant. One of the ways to do this is to give people confidence that you are handling their concerns about the virus in an appropriate manner. So some aspects of your hospitality fitout will most probably stay the same, but others will need to change.


Here are the top 6 hospitality fitout trends in Sydney that you should consider for your new restaurant design.

1. Shared condiments

Leaving condiments on the table or sharing them between tables can transfer the virus between customers. So these condiments are now being brought to the table on request and cleaned between tables.

2. Shared tables

Communal tables also pose problems for many people, so again, there’s a movement away from this type of dining towards a more innovative restaurant design that provides distance between diners.

3. Restaurant apps

Using apps to access menus and order food in your restaurant is gaining momentum as it plays on the use of technology and supports contactless interactions.

4. Outdoor dining

We have seen an increase in outdoor dining during the pandemic and this will continue as we start to return to a more normal lifestyle.

5. Social distancing

Whilst social distancing may be eliminated at some time in the future, it will continue to be important for many people. So layouts that foster a safe distance between diners are becoming more prevalent in restaurants.

6. Buffets

Even though we may return to normal, it’s likely that many customers will continue to have problems with the close social interactions around buffets. This means that the trend for hospitality fitouts is moving away from shared buffets to creating new dining experiences that allay these fears.

The perfect cheat sheet for opening your own café or restaurant – Part B

In Part A, we covered your business plan and now in Part B, we take a look at the final steps needed to start your own restaurant or café.

These steps begin with engaging the best interior project specialists for your new restaurant or café fitout in Sydney and ends with the launch of your business!



1.  Arrange your restaurant or café fitout in Sydney

With your business plan and funds organised, your next step is to hire interior project specialists to start your restaurant or cafe fitout. This includes the front end with its furniture and décor, as well as the back end kitchen and all the necessary equipment.

2.  Select the best POS for your situation

Now that your cafe fitout is well on its way to completion, you need to organise your Point of Service or POS as it’s usually called in the industry. This is a computerised system that helps you track sales, food inventories and cash flow for your business. It will make your bookkeeping and tax much easier at the end of the month.

3.  Organise food and liquor supplies

You might not be selling alcohol at your establishment, but if you are then it’s time to organise these suppliers, as well as suppliers for your food. Finding reliable providers is an important part of a successful business venture, so it pays to take your time and get it right.

4.  Hire staff for front of house and kitchen

Now is the time to hire a manager for your restaurant or café, as well as all the staff for the front end and kitchen. Having staff on board (particularly the chef) will help you with the final step in your venture, outlined below.

5.  Test your new menu on staff, family and friends

Your cafe fitout should be nearing completion, so it’s time to design and test your initial menu. This will also allow you to spot check your new suppliers for quality and reliability.

With all ten steps covered, you are now ready to launch your new café or restaurant!
