Optimizing Space in Compact Kitchens

Serving Solutions
Original Post 2012.11.07

One of the many challenges that restaurant operators must deal with is managing space limitations in the kitchen. When commercial kitchens are initially designed, considerations are made to optimize the available space to insure operational efficiency. In the course of business, menus evolve, limited-time-offers are introduced and new equipment is brought in to support new offerings. The new equipment that is brought in will hopefully fit seamlessly in the existing space. Equipment manufacturers such as Server Products design compact, customizable equipment to make the most of available space.
