Choosing the Perfect Commercial Refrigerator

Something as simple as a refrigerator could cost your restaurant more than your budget allows. Finding the perfect fit for your restaurant doesn’t have to be a strenuous task, in fact, you can narrow it down to a few crucial questions.

How Much Food Do You Carry?
Depending on how many people dine at your restaurant on a daily basis, you may need multiple refrigerators to stay stocked. However, smaller restaurants or restaurants with a slower paced schedule might not need the same amount of refrigerated storage space. Consider your shopping budget to analyze how much produce and meat you carry per day. Take into consideration how much if frozen and how much is refrigerated.  Do you need better and easy access to frozen products? Getting a refrigerator with a larger freezer section might be a better fit for your kitchen.

How Much Kitchen Space Do You Have?
Ideally, you want your commercial refrigerator to have its own place in the kitchen and move everything else to fit around it.. There’s nothing more stressful than having to weave through bags, cans, and packaged goods in a packed refrigerator during rush hour. You might end up with things falling on the floor or getting forgotten at the back of the fridge if you don’t clean it out frequently enough. Be sure to position your refrigerator in a convenient location for the kitchen staff. Keep it away from doors or in crucial hallways where people frequently walk.

When it comes to picking the perfect commercial refrigerator, there are plenty of things to think about.
