A great and successful commercial kitchen layout; meets the restaurant needs, is simple in application and propel your staff to deliver an amazing restaurant experience.
In a Commercial Kitchen, every section needs to work intuitively; you need to ensure you have the right kitchen equipment at hand and your space has been optimized to make your culinary magic happen.
This means, you need to understand the different types of layouts and the components that make up the commercial kitchen.
Types of commercial kitchen layouts include;
Island/central type layout
In this design the cooking area is centrally placed in the kitchen with the other various section or components surrounding it in a manner that encourages easy flow of operations. This layout promotes staff communication during production and makes it easy for the executive chef during supervision.
Open Kitchen layout
Any commercial kitchen can be turned into an open kitchen by taking down the wall. This usually to let the customers have an experience of what usually takes place behind the scenes.
Assembly line layout
This sort of layout is ideal for restaurants with a limited menu where the preparation is similar. This layout employs a midline or central spine where the process starts from food preparation and ends with the final product ready for service.
This layout usually has the equipment on both sides of the kitchen. This is majorly because of the tight space allocated for the kitchen. Galley layouts are ideal for food trucks.
Zone style layout
In this layout, the kitchen components are each designed to be in a separate zone and sometimes more division occurs like in meat preparation where white meat, red meat and sea food is separated.
The Components of the Kitchen
The main components of a commercial kitchen include;
- Receiving area
- Storage area
- Cooking area
- Wash up area
