Bringing Efficiency and Convenience to Your Kitchen
Posted on: March 9, 2017 by RMS Hospitality Group
When your restaurant is busy, you know you’re doing something right. However, in the frenzy that are weekends and nights, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all of the orders and madness. Upholding consistency and quality are keys to any restaurant’s success. So, how do you pull this off? First, a well-organized and convenient kitchen is a must. Next, an iron-clad Restaurant Insurance Program. Here is how to implement an efficient and convenient kitchen for success any night of the week.
Keep it simple.
Rather than have various complex components for each of your dishes, look into simplifying the menu without compromising flavor. According to the National Restaurant Association, streamline your recipes to ensure consistent quality. When training new kitchen staff, walk through each recipe, especially signature dishes and their ingredients – proteins, produce, spices and ready-to-eat components – to ensure employees execute them in the same manner every time. Consider preparing or stocking what you can, such as sauces, in batches, so they’re ready when needed.
Use data to make decisions.
Track how many dishes your restaurant sells each day and which ones are the most popular. This way, you can do the necessary prep work to prepare for those dishes ahead of time. Make accompanying condiments ahead of time, as well, and store each product in a sanitary way that follows food safety protocols.
Assess your layout.
Are you maximizing your space in the pantry? Are things laid out efficiently? Is stored food easily accessed? Organize your pantry so that food service time is minimized and you’re not shuffling through items each day trying to find the right ingredients.
