Today’s restaurateurs need to upgrade their kitchen equipment regularly to keep up with industry and consumer trends. This was not always the case. In previous generations, eating meals that had not been prepared in their households was a rare occurrence.
Dining out became commonplace about thirty years ago and the family- run storefront began to evolve into casual, mid-scale, and upscale eateries. Today a number of meals are either grab and go or from fast-food establishments. Upscale dining is no longer just to celebrate major family milestones, but in some households, a monthly or more common event.
Due to the popularity of food and dining-oriented cable TV networks, food preparation and its professions, from line-cook up to chef, have achieved a level of status. Dining franchises, once the bastion of burger and pizza takeouts, have expanded to offer international cuisine. Even institutional food services strive to produce meals that are worthy of white tablecloth establishments.
The Need for Additional Restaurant Equipment Financing
This interest influences consumers’ dining choices and restaurant kitchens are evolving to meet this new demand. While diners may focus on a restaurant’s menu, those who run the kitchens seek to incorporate restaurant equipment that may not have been commonplace even 10 years ago. These upgrades include sous vide cookers, blast chillers, and air purification systems for refrigeration that keeps foods fresh longer. Expanding menus mean a greater need for financial liquidity to expand their kitchens as well.
