What Equipment Do I Need for My Business Type?

Restaurant - The restaurant is the broadest style of foodservice establishment, and the type of food prep equipment you need will vary greatly by size and food type. Take a look at all of the food you plan to serve and which of our equipment types listed above will be beneficial in the process of prepping that food.

Pizzeria - Some essential prep equipment for a pizzeria includes large planetary mixers for making fresh dough, dough equipment that will form the crusts into perfectly flat, even circles in seconds, and slicers and dicers for preparing fresh toppings. For canned toppings and sauces, a can opener is a necessary addition. A baker’s scale can help in dividing your dough into even pieces. You also may want a vacuum packaging machine to prepare toppings in advance.

Bakery - Every bakery will need at least one planetary mixer for mixing fresh dough. You also will need a baker’s scale to weigh the dough to ensure it is being divided into equal pieces for consistent final products. In higher volume or fast paced bakeries, it may also be beneficial to include some kind of dough equipment like a dough sheeter, rounder, or divider to speed up your dough making process while creating a more consistent final product. Other equipment you may consider is food processors for making your own fillings or toppings. For a broader guide on bakery equipment, be sure to check out our Bakery Equipment Buyer's Guide!

Coffee Shop - While food prep isn’t always the first thing you think of when you think of coffee shops, there are still some basic pieces of equipment you may benefit from. For coffee shops that serve baked goods along with beverages, you may benefit from planetary mixers, scales, and packaging equipment for making these products fresh.

Deli or Sandwich Shop - The most important part of any deli or sandwich shop is a meat slicer to get fresh cuts of deli meat for each customer. If your shop makes their own bread, you will also want a planetary mixer. It is also important to have a legal for trade scale to weight and price your cuts of meat. For sandwich shops that top their sandwiches with fresh ingredients, it is also good to have handheld cutters and slicers for slicing cheese (which can also be done on certain meat slicers) and chopping up fresh veggies.
