Blueprints of Restaurant Kitchen Designs
Choosing the right blueprints for your kitchen is one of the most critical decisions any new proprietor must make. While the vast majority of customers will never set foot into the kitchen, it will be the determining factor if any customers will set foot into your restaurant. Due to the many different types and configurations of restaurant kitchens you should enter into this process with a clear sense of where you want to take your restaurant. They’re many different categories for restaurants and even more configurations for their kitchens. Among those that we will preview today are Casual Dining, Upscale Restaurants, and mobile catering.
Restaurant Kitchen Design
Example of a Casual Dining Kitchen
The first blueprint of a restaurant kitchen is the casual dining format. This configuration is popular in the United States with most sit down chain restaurants. The kitchen is equipped with various tools and stations that allows for an organized and efficient area to prepare food. The design also reduces the number of cooks needed by placing all the stations close enough to one another.
Example of a Full Service Kitchen
Full Service Kitchen
The next example is of a full service kitchen that one would find in an upscale restaurant. What separates this design from the casual dining kitchen are the various stations. These stations allow for a wide range of foods to be prepared and served to the paying customers. While this is an impressive design it does require a large amount of skilled labor to function properly.
Example of a Mobile Kitchen
The next class of restaurant is the mobile platforms for consumption. Catering companies serve large groups of people at remote locations primarily using these vehicles. This type of kitchen is restricted in the amount of space available. Therefore it is extremely important to utilize every square inch of space and to equip the vehicle with only what is needed.
