The Grand Difference

[Grand] has the experience that allows them to understand when an idea, or concept, will work or will not work. I really appreciate their willingness work with me through the whole design, build, and installation process.

We Take the Devil Out of the Detail

Each new restaurant build or retrofit includes a combination of off-the-shelf equipment plus custom-manufactured items. Specifying these products is more complicated than you might think.

Take a look at a commercial kitchen equipment catalog. You'll find a dizzying array of equipment. Multiple configurations of each model, each with multiple options, makes selecting the right product a complex task.

Things as simple as a door swinging left or right or the height of an oven door that drops open into a walkway can impact the use of a piece of equipment.

These and many other considerations must be made for each product specified. We constantly invest in educating our staff by working closely with manufacturers to understand the unique attributes of their products and their various models. We strive to match those attributes with the menu and the staff workflow so that efficiencies engineered into the design can be achieved.

Custom-manufactured products also require precision specifications. These are often driven by available space and regulatory requirements. Our specifications for custom product includes optimum material selection, review of engineering specifications for strength and durability, and the use of pre-fabricated components to reduce custom manufacturing costs.

When food service equipment providers fail to properly specify, you pay the price with returns, restock fees, and costly delays. We appreciate the importance of specifications and work diligently to deliver the very best to our customers.

Grand specification services are available to you whether or not we designed your project. Call us today to find out how you can save time and money with expert equipment specifications.
