Which is best for my specific set up?
From coffee shop to cafe kitchens, there are distinctive differences in equipment requirements for each of these operations. Differences relate to style of service, menu and the catering output of the business.
Essentially, type of operation, food style, menu, staffing and customer numbers will ultimately dictate which and how many of the equipment is required to deliver succcessful services..
Cafes and Coffee Shops are often food led with beverage sales adding much needed turnover. If the food is freshly prepared on the premises, the kitchen will need to reflect the need for equipment that can produce these.
