As discussed in the previous post, there are many factors to consider when choosing refrigeration for your new restaurant. Knowing these tips will keep you from, possibly, making a costly mistake. Here are a couple more helpful ideas when looking to purchase your walk-in.
- Location of the Walk-In – The actual structure of a walk-in refrigeration unit is both loud and very warm to stand next to. Consider both of these factors in deciding where in your kitchen this unit will be located. If you are designing your restaurant space, this is the perfect opportunity to designate an area where your unit will sit. This will keep your staff cool and not disturb your guests if the walk-in is too close to the front of house.
- Accessibility for Staff – Another location issue is also important. Consider the “flow” of the space in your kitchen and get a feel for how the staff will move about the space. Try to consider if the kitchen workers will be coming from when entering the walk-in. If you can keep the space open and comfortable, it will increase the efficiency of your kitchen and increase table turnover.
