Restaurant Design: Optimizing Your Kitchen Layout

Oswalt Restaurant Supply specializes in creating well designed commercial kitchens for efficiency in food preparation. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how great the quality of your kitchen equipment is, if your kitchen has not been strategically laid out, the quality of the food and the time that it takes to prepare it will suffer. Here are some helpful restaurant design and kitchen layout tips from Oswalt Restaurant Supply to keep in mind going forward, as well as some advice when it comes to investing in the right equipment for your establishment.

Have the Right Equipment for Your Restaurant Design

To start with, you will want to invest in most, if not all, of the following kitchen supplies and essentials:

Kitchen Supplies
  • Commercial Ovens
  • Commercial Microwaves
  • Fryers
  • Griddles
  • Dishwashing machines
  • Mixers
  • Slicers
  • Cutters
  • Work tables
  • Equipment stands
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Shelving
  • Sinks
  • Warming and holding equipment

Organize Wisely

Try to keep the tools most commonly used grouped together. For example, everything that your staff will use to prepare the food, such as the mixers, slicers, cutters, and work tables should be placed in one area of the kitchen. All appliances and equipment used to cook the food should be kept in one group, all the equipment necessary for cleaning dishes (dishwashers, sinks, etc.) in another, and all storage essentials in another. In doing so, you will effortlessly optimize all work processes, resulting in a faster, more effective kitchen.

Ask Your Team’s Opinion

Seeing as they are the ones working in the kitchen, they will have a good idea of what would work better where. While you don’t have to use every suggestion, it helps to know that you will be making the process of kitchen design (or redesign) a team effort. Happy staff members equal happier customers, after all!
