Food Service Equipment

If your business utilizes food service equipment, you know that the key to obtaining and maintaining good equipment is finding the right distributor. A good distributor will be able to offer you a wide range of equipment, and will stand behind the machines it sells. There are several ways to evaluate food service equipment suppliers, including:
  • Selection. A good equipment distributor will carry various well-known brands of equipment, such as coffeemakers by Bunn, microwave ovens by Panasonic, and beverage dispensers by Zojirushi.
  • Showroom. Suppliers of premium equipment maintain a display showroom where you can look at the equipment and ascertain which models best suit your needs.
  • Warranty. Better equipment provides good warranty protection for both parts and labour.
  • Service calls. A good supplier has equipment specialists on call to make service calls to your business.
  • Parts department. A well-stocked parts department helps you to keep machines functioning.
  • Assembly and delivery.Pre-delivery assembly ensures that machines arrive ready to get to work.
  • Financing. Better equipment suppliers help you find ways to finance the purchase of the machines you need.
  • Refurbishing. A good distributor will offer refurbishing of machines to ensure that your equipment is always serving your evolving needs, and to help extend the life of each machine.
  • Educational programs.Better distributors will give in-house workshops to teach your employees how to get the most out of your equipment.
  • Informational programs. Your supplier should keep you informed about new products that may be useful to you.
  • Competitive pricing.Your wholesaler should offer pricing that works for your budget.

Evaluating Your Needs

The first thing a good equipment distributor will be able to help you with is assessing your needs. Perhaps you need a lot of large equipment for a full-service restaurant, or maybe you are looking mainly for beverage equipment. This may dictate which supplier you gravitate toward. If you require beverage equipment, you'll want to work with a supplier who specializes in that area. If you need all types of equipment, you need to find a distributor who was a large range of machines available. Another option is to work with different distributors for various areas of your operation.
You may know, for example, that you need several coffee machines for various areas of your enterprise. A good supplier will help you to ascertain which models will work best for different areas. For example, newer single-pod coffee machines are able to produce large numbers of specialty hot drinks per hour, yet many are compact in size. This type of machine may be best suited for your purposes. Cold beverages dispensers may be more appropriate for

areas where children will be present. And smaller, more conventional coffee machines may work better for administrative offices. As well, airpots can help to keep beverages hot or cold for extended periods of time, minimizing waste.
