Whether you’re an established restaurant or just starting out, you know how important the right commercial refrigerator is to your business. The ability to keep your produce, proteins and meis en plas chilled properly means the difference between being open for business and serving your customers tasty dishes, and not.
If you’re opening your first 30 seat bistro and shopping for necessary appliances, or you’ve been at this foodie game for a while and need to update your failing system, here are some tips to consider when shopping for that all-important commercial refrigerator.
Like most products you buy, your commercial refrigerator’s brand matters. There are a lot of manufacturers out there, so it’s important to find the manufacturer you know you can trust.
These units aren’t cheap, by any means, so you want to be sure that an extended warranty will cover faulty parts and labor for commercial refrigeration repair. Knowing what each brand offers for warranty and service will help you choose the unit that’s right for you.
Size matters! Refrigerators and freezers come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. To find the right unit, start by measuring the space in your kitchen so you know the exterior dimensions when shopping. From there, you can shop around for the best interior space to suit your restaurant’s needs.
