You'll be surprised to learn that it takes more than just a coffee machine to set up a new venue. And the last thing you need when opening your venue is to realise that you’re missing an essential piece of equipment or that you urgently need hard-to-find commercial cooking utensils.

Of course, your individual needs might vary based on several factors, such as:
You can always accumulate more equipment as you go, but having the right equipment will set you up for success. It also means that there’s one less thing to worry about on the open day!

Every foodservice venue is unique in its own way. Review your menu and check it against your equipment list, ensuring you have the equipment to make every dish.
It pays to invest in high-quality equipment that will last a long time, so be sure to support where needed. If you’re just starting, you may not necessarily need a top-of-the-range coffee machine or the most expensive brand for your sandwich press when a more affordable one will do the job just as well. Think carefully about where you can save money versus where you’d like to invest a little more.
