Tips and Updates for Your Commercial Kitchen

Let us help you with those overdue kitchen upgrades!

Most new restaurants struggle to keep their doors open for the first few years, but thanks to a lot of patience, hard work, and attention to detail, you’re doing great! Your phone keeps ringing, and your dining room stays full. In fact the biggest problem that you have now is long lines of customers waiting for a table. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade!

Since 1969, Don’s Supply has been Arkansas’ leading bar and restaurant supply store, and we have a 13,000 square foot showroom full of premium quality restaurant equipment for sale. But we consider ourselves to be so much more than your kitchen supply store: we’re also your partner! We’ve helped a lot of new restaurants grow their business from the ground up, and are always a phone call away when you have any questions, or need to place an order. We also recommend periodically asking yourself the following questions to make sure that you continue to be set up for success:

Do you have enough room to store perishable inventory? A working walk-in freezer and reach-in refrigerator are absolutely essential for any kitchen. All uncooked food must remain at or under 40° F until it’s prepared, or you risk spreading bacteria. You should also pay attention to expensive menu items that aren’t frequently ordered. If it costs too much to store those ingredients, you may be better off updating your menu.

Do you have the right equipment to quickly prepare food? Your oven, range, and griddles should be large enough to serve a lunch or dinner rush, while keeping ticket times under 15 minutes.

Is your equipment still performing at peak efficiency? Quality equipment is built to last, but if it’s nearing the end of its operational lifespan, the maintenance costs may begin to exceed the expense of replacing it. The commercial restaurant equipment industry is very competitive, and the newer models keep becoming more efficient, and more affordable.

If you have any questions, or would like to place an order, contact us online, or at 501-568-1872.
