The minutes you spend on maintenance today will save you hours in the future!
We’ve all heard the old saying about “a stitch in time,” and that definitely applies to your restaurant kitchen equipment. There are a lot of other popular sayings, such as “if there’s time to lean, there’s time to clean,” “if it only takes two minutes, spend the two minutes,” and many others. But they’re all true. Complacency is the silent killer in any operation, and unpopular tasks are unpopular for a reason. That’s why it’s so important to instill a culture of pride in cleanliness. In addition to making sure that the food is safe and the equipment remains operational, it can also have a huge impact on employee morale. No one’s too important to pick up a rag or a mop, and there’s no such thing as “not my job.”
Don’s Supply has been partnering with bars and restaurants since 1969, and we service just about everything that we sell. We carry premium quality barware and kitchen supplies at value prices, and quality advice at no additional charge. Schedule a time for a consultation at any time, and we’ll learn about your business and how we can help.
When we deliver your equipment, we don’t just drop it off and plug it in. We’ll make sure that it is installed properly and that all of your staff is trained on its use. We will also review the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations with you so that you can schedule your preventive maintenance, and catch small problems before they become big problems.
We cannot overstate the importance of making sure that all of your equipment is properly cleaned on a regular schedule. There need to be procedures in place for each shift, business day, week, month, and year. Everyone should hold each other accountable, and be motivated to work together for a clean kitchen. Additionally, one of the most common reasons that we get for a service call is equipment that is not being used properly or for its intended purpose. It’s everyone’s job to keep a clean and well serviced kitchen, and no one is ever off duty!
