Peace of mind with Roneford's Commercial Kitchen Design Service

Our commercial  kitchen design service offers the best in bespoke planning, layout, equipment and fitting. Our expert advisors will take you through our tried and tested 5 step process to ensure you get the most out of your commercial kitchen.

The importance of a great kitchen design

The success of a restaurant or food business can be significantly affected by the quality of the kitchen design. A carefully planned layout will inspire your team and make your kitchen run smoothly and efficiently.

Your commercial kitchen must flow - all staff will need space to move around quickly and have easy access to most-used points, such as cleaning stations.  Otherwise delays can occur, breakages and increased levels of stress.  Check out our completed projects, 5 step process and then contact us via the form below for further information or to book a site visit.

ABOUT STORY CAFE

Where?

The Story Cafe is a cozy cafe & restaurant in The Marlowes Hemel Hempstead. Our restaurant is ideal for all occasions with delicious food & friendly Services.

What was required?

This Café – Bistro nestled in Hemel Hempstead was looking to achieve a cosy environment with a front of house display fridge for all fresh Cakes & Sandwiches and a compact kitchen for all their cooking.

The result ?

For the Story Café, the main challenge was to equip a small kitchen with all the essential items as well as squeeze in a functional prep area. Here we supplied all bespoke Stainless Steel fabrications for the prep and wash area to utilise all the space in a compact kitchen. The equipment selection consisted of heavy duty Spanish Mainho Grill, a Lincat 4 Burner Cooker, Lincat double fryer and a Foster bespoke refrigerated Counter with well. We also supplied a selection of Crockery and Glassware to renovate their existing Whiteware, so as to add a touch of colour to the tables and more contemporary glassware.

ABOUT TASTY GYROS

Where?

TASTY GYROS, is new Greek Fast-Food shop in the heart of North London, Enfield Town that opened it’s doors in July 2021. Anyone that has ever been to Greece on holiday would have tried a Gyros (the Greek version of a Kebab) and this is becoming a popular fast-food choice in London.

What was required?

This family run relaxed Fast-Food business is a new concept for this part of London. They were looking to offer an eye catching, fresh and healthy fast-food offering to a buzzing community area. The brief was to be able to produce a made-to-measure prep, cook and serve area for multiple chefs all working simultaneously.

The result?

Here we proposed a fully bespoke Counter Display cabinet that would attract attention from the passing public as well as a back prep area and coffee station. For the shop front: Counter Bain Marie Display & Counter Display Fridge with outer Corian design. All the back and inside finishing’s of this display counter are in catering grade stainless steel. This was fully bespoke according to clients cuisine needs and clients brand colours. Also included in the counter is a bespoke Coffee Counter with Artemis Drink Mixer.

ABOUT THE ALBERT

Where?

THE ALBERT, based in the heart of Primrose Hill, London. This premises had been closed for six years and was fully renovated in Sept 2020, it has now returned to it’s former glory and is once again at the heart of its community.

What was required?

Having been closed for such a long time the premises needed a full refurbishment. This project also had the added challenge of having a small kitchen in the basement of this glorious establishment. As it was never serving a lot of food previously, it was necessary to create a fully functional kitchen in a tight space as well as a new preparation area and wash area.

The result?

Our design team were given free reign to propose a fully functional kitchen and wash area for old Traditional Pub project. One of the old cellars was transformed in to the wash area and just next to that a bespoke kitchen & prep station was designed, supplied and installed. A pully system was used to lower all the large equipment through the cellar trap doors just to the back of the premises (and yes, even the very large upright fridges and freezers were lowered through that)! Wash area: Bespoke Sinks for compact space & Maidaid Dishwasher. Kitchen & Prep area: Single upright Fosters Fridge & single upright Williams Freezer, a 3 door Counter Fridge with drawers & a bespoke Gantry (heated and ambient) as well as chest freezer. Fully bespoke Blueseal Cookline, Fryer and Naboo Combi Oven. Upstairs, we also supplied a Maidaid Ice Machine and 2 Door Williams Bottle Cooler to ensure there’s a cool drink for every punter.

ABOUT GREEK PITTA

Where?

GREEK PITTA, based in Neasden, London. Opened January 2021, this is the second premises of this new chain of authentic Greek Street Food.

What was required?

Having worked with the Greek Pitta team for their first branch, we managed to determine a layout and selection of equipment that worked for their concept and that was easily adaptable for their new premises. Full takeaway service only at present (although with plans to add some seating once permitted). It was necessary to establish enough space of their front cooking area and back preparation area allowing at least 3 chefs to move easily around the front service section. Another requirement was to ensure quick and efficient access to the back prep-area and utilise the more generous space.

The result?

Supply and install of kebab machines, Mainho Grill, Lincat; fryer, griddle and chip warmer. Foster double door refrigeration ample storage of foods, Williams counter fridges for the front service and cook section. Bespoke fabrications to meet customer needs of full use of all the available space for preparation. Williams vintage made-to-order wall built in Bottle Cooler, visible to customers at eye level behind the counter. As well as all the kitchen utensils, COVID-19 social distancing signage and kitchen hygiene signs.
