The kitchen is the heart of any restaurant, café, bar, or other commercial eating establishment. Without the right equipment, properly maintained and serviced, these venues end up losing customers and revenue.
As the leading provider of catering equipment servicing solutions, we know just how important it is to keep your kitchen devices well maintained. These are just a few of the reasons for doing so…
Spot problems ahead of time
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that even the most robust and expensive catering equipment wears down over time. After all, they are being used almost exclusively in a high-temperature, high-humidity environment, which is rarely a good thing for mechanical devices. By arranging a regular servicing of your equipment, you can spot minor faults before they become major problems. If a component is in the process of deteriorating, it can be replaced before it fails, causing the entire device to break down.
Make sure your kitchen stays reliable
It’s important you keep your kitchen running regular as clockwork. With so many pieces of equipment operating at any given time – including refrigerators, ovens, air conditioning units, dishwashers, and more – regular maintenance checks and servicing is the key to a happy kitchen. If one item stops working, it can lead to a domino effect as work backs up – not something to look forward to in a busy commercial restaurant.
Keep your custom
Broken equipment in the kitchen can mean major delays for your customers at best, and the entire restaurant or café closing down at worst. While we like to think of our patrons as loyal customers, if you’re not there to serve them, they will go somewhere else… and who’s to say they will ever come back? Keeping your equipment in good order ensures you’re always there to give them the high-quality food and service they’ve come to expect.
Broken equipment doesn’t just mean you can’t cook. Depending on the particular fault, it could be a major health and safety risk for staff and customers alike. Anything from a leaking gas valve or a stuck dial to a clogged extractor fan and more could pose a serious fire hazard if left unattended. Frequent servicing will spot that in plenty of time to be repaired.
