Used Restaurant Equipment
The type of Used Restaurant Equipment needed for a restaurant depends on the type of restaurant being opened –
An Italian restaurant may need a pasta cooker & a pizza machine whereas an Indian restaurant may need used restaurant equipment to cook flat breads, such as roti & naan breads.
A fine dining restaurant would generally need all the used restaurant equipment to make, prep and cook food on the premises, though a fast food restaurant may purchase many of
the sauces and other food in bulk and premade so would not need as many pieces of food equipment or food machines for the restaurant.
