Battling the Balance of Durability, Costly & Cheap

Posted on

When it comes to restaurant and catering equipment, restraining operating cost and investing in items that have the longest usable life possible is part of a greater picture of maximizing business profit. However, go too cheap, and the equipment not only doesn’t perform well, it also ends up costing more with too frequent replacements. Go too expensive, and the items might work extremely well but eat up any profit generated by the business and turn the operation into a loss. Neither alternative is really acceptable.

Finding a balance between extreme cost as well as reliability can be hard in restaurant equipment. The old principle of “you get what you pay for” is not always what restaurant and catering business owners want to hear, especially when the bottom line matter so much month to month and a big equipment replacement hit can be a serious burp on the business’ account books.

The trick to the balance is to find a budget number that the business is able to absorb, either in one cost or multiple payments, and then sticking with that budget as one goes through equipment procurement. The hard part is pegging the number; once that’s out of the way, one knows the box he or she has to work in and what equipment is then possible in the range of choices available.
