Equip your kitchen properly-When it comes to commercial kitchen equipment, you often get what you pay for. This doesn’t mean that you have to buy the most expensive equipment available, but this is no time to go cheap. Make sure that your kitchen is always equipped to quickly serve all of your guests during peak hours, and plan for future growth!
There’s no such thing as too clean-You should have a detailed cleaning schedule for every shift, and your kitchen staff should always remember that “when it’s time to lean, it’s time to clean!” You should also have a rotating schedule for deep cleaning on a regular basis.
Follow routine maintenance recommendations-Unauthorized repairs can void your manufacturer’s warranty, which is why it’s important to know what you can and can’t do on your own. The important role that preventative maintenance plays is helping you catch minor service issues before they become major ones.
