We wish to tell you how pleased we are with the Torbay Production Kitchen. It has now been operating for 2 months and we couldn’t be more happy with the results. Your design meets everything that we asked for. Your recommendations of equipment has worked extremely well. We are very pleased with the equipment specs and the way it complements each other. Our staff are full of praise for the new kitchen and conditions they are now working in. Overall this project has been a most satisfying experience and your expert advice and professional care has seen the project run smoothly from design to the production of the first meal.

I have enjoyed working with you and the team and the level of professionalism and design outcomes has been excellent. I look forward to keeping in touch and hopefully working together on more projects.

I would like to commend your team for prompt and accurate documentation for the International United Nations project at Africa Hall (UNECA headquarters / Ethiopia). It is a pleasure working with the team who are Revit proficient, action requests promptly and capture all instructions in one go.

We had a vision that Food Strategy understood where others had struggled to see what we wanted to achieve. We had tried to get a solid plan in place for 2 years and were only offered problems with no solutions until we met with Food Strategy. Once they came on board, they not only understood our vision but had it drawn and all approvals in place within 4 weeks – they offered us solutions. Food Strategy have supported us every step of the way especially when we wanted a little extra hand holding and now 6 months later are still around when we need them even after they have delivered the job.

I cannot thank Food Strategy enough. Everything, from the day we planned the kitchen to the day we opened, everything’s been really good. I feel like someone was holding my hand on this new project. The kitchen is superb now. They have a lot of experience on equipment, with a few chef’s behind, so they understand what we need. It’s been very practical. The kitchen has a very good flow, the equipment’s great. Happy days.

Piepers Pies I think one of the best things we’ve done in planning for this is coming to Food Strategy. I spent a lot of time researching companies: design companies, fit out companies – at the end of the day I started to get a little bit confused about who did what and what they offered. Coming to Food Strategy, Ben and Tim made the process quite simple and quite clear about what your scope of work is. I was very, very impressed with the level  of design that came through in regards to the design, layout, the functionality and the most important things for us was workflow.

Uncle Bob’s Bakery Our strategy in recent years has always been Food Strategy. When Food Strategy do it, they get it right. They deal with the council so you can focus on the other important aspects of your business: menu design, product development, the other areas where your expertise is. Leave the experts to do the things that are really important around the design of your business. I can’t speak highly enough and recommend highly enough that you consider using a specialist, like Food Strategy, in this area and getting your design correct.

Flour & Chocolate Patisserie I found the compliance stuff a little bit overwhelming. It’s a lot of information that has to be filled out correctly. That’s when I relied on Food Strategy to look after that aspect for me. There’s a lot of rules and regulations there. You think you might know stuff, but it’s too expensive not to know some things, hence, I went with you guys.

Grass Fed I don’t know all the regulations, I don’t know how to deal with councils. If I didn’t have a company such as Food Strategy to bring all that together for me, I’d probably waste another six months, another expense and it’s time as well. It just takes the hard work out of everything.

Do I need new commercial kitchen designs for an existing site?

When opening a new food business, it’s not uncommon to take over an existing site where another food business has previously operated. Many new owners question whether or not they need commercial kitchen designs for sites that have already housed other hospitality operations.

Does size matter in commercial kitchen design?

Space matters in most things – including commercial kitchens. You want to have ample space for your staff to move around as they go about the many aspects of food preparation. But you don’t want to take away space that could be utilised for the front of the house.
