    What Type of Foodservice Equipment Do You Need?

    Firm decisions must be made about the scope of the menu offering.

    Once you have assessed your store facilities and business volume — as well as company talent — and decided you have what it takes to move forward with a new or expanded foodservice program, firm decisions must be made about the scope of the menu offering. This is what will drive your foodservice equipment needs. For example, you need different equipment for burgers — which will require a grill — vs. fried chicken that would call for a pressure fryer, etc.

    While there are cost considerations for foodservice equipment procurement, equally important is how easy the equipment is to operate and maintain, the type of manufacturer training and support included, and how much it costs to operate the equipment on a daily basis.
