Before you pull out your wallet to pay for a piece of commercial kitchen equipment that looks like a great deal, stop and check to see just how much you’ll be paying. An enticing number might not include fees, the cost of delivery, taxes and the like. Get a full breakdown of the cost so you know what you’re paying both long and short term.
What About Maintenance?
Just like your stove, refrigerator and dishwasher at home, the appliances for your commercial kitchen might require occasional maintenance. Determine just what kind of maintenance each piece will need, how often it will need it and how much you can expect to pay. This is something you’ll most certainly want to factor into the overall cost, and something you’ll want to slowly save up for over time to lessen the financial burden.
Do I Have Room for This?
Take accurate measurements of your kitchen space before you head out shopping. Use those numbers to determine if you’ll have adequate space for whatever appliance you’re considering. It’s good to have a solid idea of where you’d like for everything to go in your kitchen and how you plan on setting everything up. Besides room for appliances, you’ll also need plenty of room for employees to move around and do their jobs.
Is This an Energy-Efficient Selection?
Know that appliances for both residential and commercial purposes are more energy efficient than ever. You don’t want to blow more of your profits than necessary on paying for outrageous electricity bills. One thing we’d like to point out is the fact that efficient appliances can cost more, but they often save you more money in the long run. Be sure to ask about special rebates and tax credits for buying an eco-friendly appliance.
