Commercial Kitchen Design and Layout Services
The commercial kitchen design and layout services at Mise Designs are the perfect solution for your production cooking needs. We expertly develop cost-effective and safety-focused work spaces so you can maximize your productivity. Commercial kitchens prepare food to feed the masses, and we know what it takes to make the design process seem effortless!
Our commercial kitchen designers are classically trained executive chefs, so we view your project with a hands-on perspective. We understand how difficult it can be to prepare such a large volume of food, because we have done it. Regardless of the type of project, we create well-designed commercial kitchens that will give your chefs the ability to cook in bulk with the same speed and efficiency as an à la minute kitchen.
A Commercial Kitchen Designed Around the Process
A great commercial kitchen layout is like a roadmap for success. As chefs, our first step is to get an in-depth look at your food offerings and a deep understanding of your methods for creating them. It is our unique perspective that provides the framework for creating a commercial kitchen, designed around the process.
Designing a commercial kitchen is like organizing the steps to a recipe. We create an outline, or product flow, from the raw ingredients all the way through to the finished product. We break down each individual step into basic culinary principles and implement strategies to execute them while maintaining the highest quality and sanitary standards. No matter what type of food products you are creating, our knowledge of culinary methods and techniques can take a commercial kitchen that is “workable” and turn it into a powerhouse of production.
The Importance of the Right Commercial Kitchen Equipment
A major advantage of creating a commercial kitchen designed around the process is the cost savings. By focusing on functionality, we select only the equipment necessary to carry out the process, as well as plan for the growth and the evolution of the business. We are your guide through the world of foodservice equipment so you can make the decisions that are best for you and your business.
Finding the right equipment solution is where our commercial kitchen designers bring true value to your project. We work with you to develop the strategy for success and combine it with our extensive knowledge of commercial equipment to create a kitchen that will perfectly execute your process. Since we have no brand affiliation or bias, we guarantee that you will get the equipment that is right for your concept and budget.
Your Commercial Kitchen Concept Is Unique
A well-designed commercial kitchen is just as unique as the products they create, and our designers know what it takes for them to be successful. Unlike many other firms that design based on rules of thumb, we tailor our approach to your needs. As professional commercial kitchen consultants, we meet or exceed all recognized standards in sanitation and construction, so you can focus on starting your business, not the construction process.
Our design and development team provide entrepreneurs the resources they need to develop a successful business. We optimize the flow, function, and efficiency of your kitchen so you can focus on quality, not compromise. This translates into a more pleasant work environment for your staff, a better product for your customers, and a more profitable bottom line for you.

Examples of Commercial Kitchen Design Concepts
Catering facilities are unique commercial kitchens. The design approach is like developing a large-volume restaurant kitchen. Although every caterer will have their own specialty, each kitchen typically requires a wide variety of multi-functional equipment. These businesses may offer on-premise dining, but most operations will only prepare food on site and then deliver it to the event. Working with a design team that has culinary expertise can be a great value for these types of projects. As chefs, we understand the complex task of preparing food safely and for transport, so you can be sure that only the highest-quality product reaches your customer.
Bakeries & Specialty Production Kitchens
Bakeries and specialty production kitchens are customized projects. A bread baker and a pastry chef will both build a bakery but will have different equipment needs. So, a commercial kitchen designed around the process is essential for success in these types of projects. As with bakeries, specialty production kitchens focus on a few or several unique product offerings that require a specialized design approach. Whether your business concept is making sauerkraut or your grandmother’s jams and jellies, outlining the ideal production process is the first step. We help our clients perfect these processes and develop the plan to make them a reality.
Stadiums & Event Centers
Stadiums and event centers are often like hotel kitchen design projects, but on a much larger scale. Most of these facilities will have a centrally located commissary kitchen, designed to prepare meals for up to several thousand people. Stadiums will also typically have a smaller, fully equipped kitchen, used by a nutritional staff to prepare meals for athletic teams. These commercial kitchen projects also often feature many retail food and beverage operations in various locations throughout the venue to feed event goers. These smaller retail locations require strict process planning to serve many customers in only a few minutes.
Healthcare facilities are ever evolving to meet the more sophisticated needs of their clientele in a less institutional type of setting. The industry is moving away from simply providing balanced, nutritional meals to a more conventional, restaurant-style dining experience. These projects include hospitals and senior or assisted living facilities, as well as larger health and wellness centers. Food safety is critically important for every type of commercial kitchen, but these projects also need to create a process for it, called a HACCP Plan. Our team understands healthcare, so we know what it takes to deliver a high-quality product safely.
Colleges & Educational Institutions
Colleges and educational institutions require the most flexibility of all commercial kitchen project types. An important aspect of these projects is knowing that what is popular today may not be the case tomorrow. These dining guests are also the most educated consumers when it comes to healthy eating, food quality, and responsible product sourcing. However, these same consumers are typically on a tight budget, so it is common to see a bountiful salad buffet placed a short distance away from a fast-food franchise concept. We make sure that your commercial kitchen layout is adaptable so you can change as quickly as the trends.
Military Bases & Government Installations
As a certified veteran-owned small business, we take great pride in developing the perfect commercial kitchens solutions for our armed forces. Foodservice operations on military bases and government installations require cooking equipment that is highly durable with the longest possible lifespan. These projects provide high-quality dining services to many men and women, so volume preparation and speed of service are key factors to success. We are proud to create such commercial kitchen design projects that will ensure that these brave men and women receive only the very best possible product, whether it be home or abroad. Semper Fidelis!
