Restaurant Equipment Tips
The restaurateur knows the difficulty that staying within a tight budget while choosing restaurant equipment presents. All the typical restaurant tools, food equipment, and general kitchen equipment can be painful to watch add up. Therefore, the importance of menu engineering cannot be emphasized enough. Although it may not be immediately clear why menu engineering is important for balancing the restaurant equipment budget, the reason becomes clear when you consider that if the menu is not set, then you may waste money on kitchen and food equipment that you simply do not need. In the simplest of examples, a bakery may not need to purchase the largest state-of-the-art freezer it can afford as it does not need to keep as many things frozen as a dinner restaurant known for its steaks. A gourmet sandwich place may not want to invest in that heavily discounted catering truck with counter-top ranges and induction cookers because it probably will not need those things to cater a party with its more limited catering menu.
Similarly, purchasing restaurant tools would follow the same idea. Once the restaurateur has a basic idea of its menu, then it can begin selecting which kitchen equipment it needs to get the best of, and which it may not use as much or need to buy state-of-the-art. A pizza shoppe, for example, knows that its primary investment will be in ovens and ranges to make dough and sauce with. On the other hand, it knows it will need to provide additional menu options, and select more budget-friendly utensils designed for preparing those menu options that are secondary. Finally, while staying on budget can be difficult for a restaurateur starting from scratch, many restaurants sell used items and are an excellent resource for locating restaurant tools.
