Hey there! As a business owner, I understand the importance of keeping the customer happy. If the customer isn’t happy, I am not happy! If I fail to keep the customer satisfied, the community will know about it and my business will begin to falter. I cannot allow this to happen, as I depend on my business for my living wage. In the past few years, I have discovered a new way to improve my productivity, as well as that of my employees. With the addition of many under the counter appliances, my customers can receive what they want quicker and my employees won’t be bogged down unnecessarily. Below, you’ll learn about the enormous benefits of these appliances.
Being a business owner means you will have unlimited responsibilities, but food prepping will require reliable appliances. Commercial grade appliances will definitely make my job easier, as well as speed up my overall productivity. You would be surprised with the constant use and abuse that these appliances would have to endure, which is why I selected my appliances very carefully.
It is crucial to take the time to review each appliance brand carefully and thoroughly, so that you can compare them to see which one will work better for your foodservice. While I knew that I would have to spend a little more cash on a higher quality appliance, I was willing to do just that to ensure my success in the foodservice operation.
Saving Money In All Areas
As a business owner, I understand how important it is to pinch a penny here and there. Anytime I am able to save a little bit of money, I do so! Each time I am able to save money, I am able to make extra money. When I explored the under counter kegerator, I saw an opportunity to save an immense amount of cash and I took it. The most notable way to save will be the item’s low price tag. When compared to purchasing a full sized appliance, the under the counter models are much less costly. This will save you more upfront, but it doesn’t stop there.
It is also vital to remember that under the counter appliances can be much more energy efficient. Many of these appliances are Energy Star certified and they will not use a great deal of energy. This can help you save even more money! Once you’ve switched to this type of appliance, the electric bill for your establishment will begin to shrink.
In order to protect my business from financial devastation, I was sure to select brands that offered an extended manufacturer’s warranty. This was not that difficult to achieve, because many of the undercounter appliance brands included some hefty warranties that covered the mechanical components, digital touchscreen, electronic features, exterior finish, and the labor.
I recommend anyone that owns a foodservice business to only purchase appliances that include a 5-10 year full warranty. This way if any malfunction occurs, the company will replace the parts and send out a mechanic to complete the repairs.
One of the biggest benefits of all is the convenience of these appliances. With under the counter ice makers and kegerators, your employees will be able access ice and alcohol much easier and quicker. They’ll never have to step into a backroom, in order to grab these amenities. Instead, they’ll be nearby, at all times. This will prove to be exceptionally beneficial and will enhance your employee’s productivity significantly.
This will help to ensure that your employees will be able to focus solely on keeping the customers satisfied and won’t be bogged down with something silly.
Takes Up Less Space
Many local establishments have a limited amount of space in the kitchen area. This can present a major problem and can slow down your employees, as they attempt to duck and dodge one another. Instead, you will want to do your best to keep the kitchen walkway free of clutter. Your employees should be able to rush right through, without worry about colliding into someone or something. At the same time, all trip hazards should be eliminated.
This is where under the counter appliances come into the picture. They’ll prevent clutter, since they can be placed directly under the counter. They’ll remain flush with the counter and will not protrude into the walkway. This will help to guarantee that your employees will be able to walk through freely, without concern.
Interior and Exterior Construction
When my employees are working diligently to prepare meals for my customers, they are truly not giving much thought to the appliances. This means that the appliances are going to be taking a lot of abuse such as slamming doors, utensils being dropped on them, and liquid spills. The overall construction of the appliances plays a huge role in the appliance’s ability to withstand this type of abuse, along with the normal wear and tear.
I was expecting to get a very long service life from my undercounter appliances, which is why I chose the heavy duty stainless steel material. I knew from previous experience that this material would not rust, corrode, or breakdown after a decade of use. Of course, this does not mean that the other materials would be any less durable, but for my sake I was going to stick with stainless steel.
If you own a home or commercial foodservice business, you are most likely familiar with the reputable appliance brands. These brands did not gain their reputation just for having an eye appealing appearance. No, this reputation is based on the high-quality products that they manufacture. Consumers have taken the time to rate these appliances with genuine reviews and comments. If you are unfamiliar with any of these brands’ reputations, all you need to do is search for consumer reviews, because they are filled with some very valuable information.
These are only to name a few of the name brand appliance manufactures. I chose the Frigidaire brand, because it is very reliable and trustworthy. My mother always purchased this brand, so I was going to follow in her footsteps and do the same. I could have never been more proud of my new glamorous, high-quality kitchen appliances than I am today.
