If You Think You Can't Afford Maintenance Costs, You Really Can't Afford Equipment Downtime!

When it comes to serving your guests, the only thing more important than your employees is your kitchen equipment! It’s vital to keep your restaurant kitchen appliances properly serviced and maintained, because you need them to bring your great menu to life!

Don’s Supply is proud to be Arkansas’ leading provider of restaurant and catering service equipment and supplies, and we’re a phone call away when you need to place an order, or have any service questions. We’ve been supplying restaurants and bars with premium equipment since 1969, and we service most of what we sell! Here are a few easy ways to lower your equipment service costs:

Train your employees in the proper use of all kitchen equipment-One of the most common causes of equipment downtime is when it’s used in a manner inconsistent with its intended purpose. You should never make any assumptions about what new employees know, and it doesn’t hurt to provide additional training as needed.

Develop a routine cleaning and maintenance schedule-Your kitchen equipment should be cleaned on a daily basis, if not more often. And if you develop a schedule for deep cleaning and routine preventative maintenance, you’ll often discover small maintenance issues before they become big ones!

Know when to call for service-Before performing any repairs on your kitchen equipment, consult the user’s manual. Unauthorized repairs can void your manufacturer’s warranty, so be sure to know which repairs that you can make on your own, and which ones will require making a service call. And if you’re ever unsure, give us a call!

There’s never a convenient time for your equipment to break down, but the good news is that if you develop and implement an effective cleaning and preventative maintenance schedule, you can manage service costs. We take pride in developing lasting partnerships with all of our clients, and we’re always happy to offer personalized recommendations on the care and service of your equipment. Most importantly, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all sales and service! Contact us online, or give us a call at (501) 568-1872, and let us know how we can help!
