How do you convert a concession into a commercial kitchen?

Converting a concession stand into a commercial kitchen involves several key steps. First, you'll need to determine the appropriate concession equipment and appliances, which (depending on your business model) might include commercial grills, fryers, ovens, refrigerators, and food warmers. Ensure your commercial kitchen setup adheres to local health and safety regulations and obtains the necessary permits and licenses. Next, you'll need to plan your kitchen layout and consider factors like workflow, ventilation, and hygiene. From there, you can nail down the necessary storage options for ingredients, utensils, and equipment. Last, consider essential concession equipment parts like hood filters and replacement burners. These pieces are often forgotten, yet essential to maintain your kitchen's functionality.

How big are concession stands?

Concession stands come in various sizes, ranging from small, mobile setups to larger, permanent structures. Concession trailer equipment and concession stand equipment are designed to be compact and space-efficient, allowing them to fit into tight spots at fairs, stadiums, amusement parks, and other venues. These smaller concession stands are often around 8 feet by 8 feet or even smaller.

On the other hand, larger venues might have more extensive and permanent concession stands, which can vary significantly in size. These larger setups may include multiple service counters, cooking stations, storage areas, and even seating for customers. In such cases, the size of the concession stand can range from a few hundred square feet to over 1,000 square feet.
