Food Production Kitchen Design and Layout Services
Our food production kitchen design and layout services are the most unique and complex projects we create. Unlike most commercial kitchens, food production kitchens are designed to produce specific products or groups of products manufactured and packaged in large quantities to be sold at retail outlets, keeping accurate to the quality of the product that brought you to the market in the first place.
Every food product on the market starts with an idea and a base recipe, so who better understands what it takes to scale that formula up to reach the masses than a team of classically trained chefs? Whether we are bottling an old family barbecue sauce recipe, individually frozen gluten-free meals, locally famous baked goods, or therapeutic cannabis edibles, our professional chefs work with you through each step of the design and development process so you can reach your production goals.
Growing From a Commercial Kitchen to a Production Kitchen
Many of our food production kitchen design clients have established businesses and efficient commercial kitchens where they produce their products. Still, demand is simply exceeding their ability to supply. They know they need to scale up production but are not sure where to start, and that’s where our consulting and design services can help.
To know where you are going, we first must understand where you have been, so, our team starts with an overall business production assessment. We look at your current commercial kitchen layout and the production processes in place; to understand the factors preventing you from meeting your production objectives.Once we determine your pinch points in production, we work with you to outline your options for your growth. These may involve a simple space reorganization to include a small amount of automation or a complete kitchen relocation into a larger facility. The goal is to create a growth strategy to reach your current and future production needs.
Food Production Kitchen Design for Human Labor, Automation, or Both?
Most of us have heard the phrase, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” And we in the food service industry know all too well that Newton’s third law applies not just to the forces of physics but also rings valid in every decision we make in formulating a food product. We firmly believe this law is no less critical when applied to your food production kitchen design process.
In our over 30 years of food service industry experience, the most successful operations we have seen all share one unique quality, Balance. As classically trained chefs, we were taught the “classic” way to do things… But in the real culinary world, we quickly learned that we might need to improvise for reasons outside our control, so we searched for new tools to help us reach our objective. This adaptation is equally faithful when designing a food production kitchen. We help you find the perfect balance between human labor and automation to maintain your product’s integrity while maximizing profitability.
