Commercial kitchen floor plans are needed if you want to open a catering company or a restaurant, although a restaurant kitchen floor plan is a better choice in the second case.
Generally speaking, a commercial kitchen is a room or a building where food is manufactured, processed, packaged, for the purpose of distribution. There are some rules regarding the types of products which are allowed to be processed in a commercial kitchen and you need a license to run specific activities in it.
Actually a commercial kitchen must meet all the requirements of NH Statutes and Administrative Rules. After you get the license you can run your business but you can expect unscheduled inspections from the authorities who have to make sure that everything is all right. This type of kitchen is not a residential kitchen, so it is not appropriate to install it at your home.
The floor plan is specially designed so that a large amount of food can be processed in a relatively short period of time. The designers know that they must provide the kitchen with a lot of available space as there is a lot of staff moving around to complete their task.
Efficiency and space is crucial in creating a commercial kitchen floor plan. Also they must have in mind the emergency procedures, because a kitchen has always a fire braking risk and people have to get out of there as soon as possible. First aid kits are absolutely necessary, as there is always a high risk of burns and cuts.
