The equipment that a restaurant needs depends on what it’s serving, how it is set up to serve, and how many people it plans to accommodate. In addition to the equipment mentioned above, a restaurant will definitely need fire extinguisher and cleaning supplies, dishes and utensils, an ice machine, warming and holding equipment, lighting and linens.
Commonly needed commercial kitchen equipment includes microwave oven and deep fryer, food processors and mixers, transportation racks and carts. However, the types of this equipment or more specialized items depends on several factors. A restaurant might need a charbroiler, griddle, steam table, and any number of appliances from vegetable peelers to industrial-grade mixers to a commercial steamer.
