We don’t need to tell you that your commercial kitchen relies on properly-functioning equipment to run from day to day. But have you considered just how many ways you can lose money to downtime, and how quickly those costs can mount? Having a dedicated food equipment service partner can make a huge difference in terms of how much financial damage is done if one or more pieces of equipment in your kitchen break down.

In a lot of cases, the right equipment servicing partner can make the difference between a minor annoyance and a major disaster!

Situations You’ll Be Glad to Have A Dedicated Food Equipment Service Partner

  • Your refrigerator or freezer malfunctions

A refrigerator or freezer breakdown is, of course, among the worst possible breakdown that can happen in a commercial cooking environment. When you discover a cooling system malfunction, the clock is literally ticking. Hours, even minutes, can make the difference between being able to preserve the food within, or having to throw out hundreds or even thousands of dollars’ worth of inventory.

This is exactly the sort of situation where having the right repair partner can make all the difference. When you can pick up the phone and call people who already know your kitchen and your equipment, they can get your food cooling again with the shortest possible delay.

  • The oven or stoves malfunction

While not as serious as a freezer breakdown, having your primary cooking surfaces break down can make for a serious PR problem. It’s easy to lose the business of customers if they sit down only to be told that menu items are unavailable.

The right service partner can ensure your equipment is down for only a short amount of time, avoiding disruption of your service.
