As one of the biggest industries in the world that employs more than 5 million people, many newbies in the restaurant industry look forward to being part of it because quite honestly, nothing seems more exciting and motivating than saying.
The fact that it promises to yield huge profits (assuming it is done right) may be one reason but then, there's also the fact that it also has one of the highest attrition rates which is why many restaurants that opened just a year or two ago have now either closed down or are operating under different management.
For these reasons, those who venture into this exciting but challenging realm will need to be prepared to work hard and to make informed decisions lest they suffer a sad fate and lose their investment. Often, the biggest problems new restaurant owners have is how to manage a steady cash flow as they know how fast startup cash can be spent and you can end up not knowing exactly where the money went.
Among the many important pieces of equipment budding restaurateurs need to spend for is commercial refrigeration. With more than 75% of the food we eat in restaurants being produced, packaged, shipped, stored and preserved via commercial refrigeration units, there is no doubt about how important an investment it is to any business in the food industry for without it, how else can the integrity and freshness of food be maintained enough for safe consumption?
Commercial Bar Fridges
Commercial bar fridges are free-standing commercial equipment used to provide cold storage for commercial establishments and facilities. They are available in a wide variety of configurations, from reach-in coolers to walk-in freezers. They provide restaurant owners confidence and peace of mind that the food they serve to their customers are always fresh and safe to eat as they are designed to maintain temperatures between -10 degrees Fahrenheit and 0 degrees Fahrenheit which are ideal for storing food.

To start finding the best commercial refrigeration for your business, you first need to determine what type of commercial refrigeration you need. Reach-in coolers are some of the most common types you'll find in most restaurants and they can usually store food that is menu staples and prepared every day in large amounts.
Walk-in refrigerators and freezers, on the other hand, are ideal for storing bulk supplies like alcohol or juices. They are designed to be installed with shelving options for maximum organization. If your establishment serves light refreshments like sandwiches, salads, and pizzas, refrigerated prep tables will keep your ingredients, dressings, and sauces fresh and also enable you to easily reach for anything you need for food prep.
Affordable, Small & Large Models Available across Australia
If you sell soft drinks or any other kind of beverage, upright storage display fridges are best for you since they are made with glass doors so customers can easily see what you have on sale. These are ideal for selling food items that spoil quickly and are best used by grocery store owners or restaurants that have take-out service. And lastly, if you own a bar, then you need to have excellent bar refrigeration to make sure the drinks you mix and the beers you serve are ice-cold. It also makes it easy for you to reach under the bar and serve the drinks immediately which is a plus for customers. Available in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Wollong & Perth).
You will also need to determine the right size by determining the amount of food and beverage you actually store on a daily basis, the uses you will put your refrigerators to and the location where you want to install your unit. Getting the right size is important as this will also determine your energy consumption - too large and you may find that you are chilling nothing but empty space and too small and you may end up with more spoilt food because your fridge wasn't able to evenly distribute the temperature. Either way, you end up with astronomical bills that could've been avoided had you put more thought into the size you need.
