If you’re about to dive into the world of puff pastries and pies, you’ve got an adventure ahead of you. Opening a bakery takes a lot of planning (from the right restaurant equipment to an excellent selection of treats), but its rewards can be sweet. After you’ve crafted a mouth-watering menu, you’ll want to start putting together all the necessities to get your kitchen up and running. Here’s what restaurant equipment you’ll need for ultimate bakery success:
Keeping things organized, both in the kitchen and out front, are key components in making a bakery run smoothly. Though decidedly unglamorous to implement and maintain, good organization will make life a lot easier, allowing you to keep supplies within easy reach and making food inventory easier.
You’ll need all the restaurant equipment basics to bake up a bevy of classic bakery treats. For example:
• Fryers will facilitate the creation of donuts, fritters, fried pies, and the like.
• Convection ovens cook foods more quickly and evenly, and cause the butter in baked goods to lose its moisture faster, resulting in a flakier, crispier food
• Commercial mixers make it easy to combine larger amounts of ingredients with minimal effort, mess, and cleanup.
What’s a baked good without a proper display case? Unlikely to get eaten, that’s what. Make sure your bakery items are well-displayed on display shelving or in glass cases so that customers can eyeball their chosen foods before selecting their favorites. After all, it’s fairly easy to resist a doughnut on a menu board, but much harder when all that glazed, sugary goodness is right in front of you.
