We Are TAG, Commercial Kitchen Design Experts.
Procuring a new commercial kitchen can be a daunting process, that’s why TAG Catering Equipment offers a full design and consultancy service to help guide you (see our process below). We challenge the perceptions of commercial kitchen design and our award-winning experience has helped create kitchens that are more efficient, increase brigade wellbeing and reduce energy consumption. We work directly with owners, chefs, major corporate clients, consultants and architects to design commercial kitchen solutions and provide full turnkey kitchen installations.
TAG has delivered projects in all market sectors, from small local speciality restaurants to gastro-pubs, complete kitchen refurbishments in 5* hotels and dark kitchens. One of our strengths is that we are not tied to a single manufacturer and are free to specify the most suitable equipment for your project, regardless of budget. Additionally, practical knowledge gained through maintenance and repair services means we know what equipment is most reliable, easy to use and maintain. Whatever your project size, cost, or factors such as sustainability or brigade wellbeing, we will work with you to develop the right solution.
We would like to thank you and the Team at TAG for your help and support in managing this complex project. There were lots of changes before and during, not to mention the problems with the building itself. TAG were flexible and professional throughout, helping find solutions to the various problems we encountered along the way and quickly resolving them.
There were multiple changes to the layout, right up to strip out, TAG were so accommodating, they liaised fully with the manufacturers and Heinz Beck, going that extra mile to ensure the layout was exactly right. The finished kitchen is an absolute pleasure to work in, me and my team couldn’t be more pleased. We would be delighted for you to bring future clients to see our facility. Thank you.
Not only have we saved on energy by changing over to Induction, but the flow through this busy kitchen, has made both delivering service to a busy banqueting operation and preparing meals for 300 staff on a daily basis, a lot more user-friendly.
As well as decreasing the overall heat load, to make the kitchen a more comfortable place to work, it has increased the overall staff satisfaction with regards to working conditions.
All of this would not have been possible without the professional support and commitment, from design concept, product selection, installation and final handover, if it were not down to the TAG team and their commitment to deliver 5 Star quality.
We Are Multi-Award Winning
The commercial kitchen design process...
A new kitchen scheme starts with an initial consultation; taking into account everything from the menu, restaurant covers, budget and site restrictions such as power availability and location.
After this meeting, we create designs and present our recommendations using the latest 3D computer software including AutoCAD, Revit and SketchUp. This allows you to visualise how your new kitchen will look and feel once it is installed.
From experience, this stage may take some time but we are dedicated to delivering client-focused kitchen installations, so there are no limits to our design process.
Following sign-off of the conceptual designs, we will begin specifying the right catering equipment to suit your operational needs and budget. With access to the whole of market, all equipment is considered based on its features, reliability and overall suitability.
Our unique approach and ethos means that we can work with any restaurant, hotel or institution within the hospitality sector. From bespoke installations for plant-based vegan restaurants to local family-run pizzerias and Michelin-starred hotel restaurants and banquet kitchens.
Have you considered leasing or financing your project?
Catering equipment leasing or finance is an effective way to spread the cost of your equipment or entire project, over a term that suits you.
It is 100% tax-allowable so you can offset against your taxable profits and will mean you can maintain working capital to invest in other areas.
From one-off pieces of equipment to complete kitchen installations can be financed, including design fees, installation labour and training.
Efficient and sustainable commercial kitchens...
Whilst aesthetics and ergonomics are crucial in the impact and function of your kitchen, our philosphy is to create a kitchen that is not only flexible for the future, but meets the current demands of energy efficiency and sustainability.
We understand that return on investment will be a key consideration for you when investing in new catering equipment. Our award-winning designs can provide payback within three to four years. For more information on our previous commercial kitchen designs, please visit our Projects.
What’s more, using the latest energy management control systems, we can design a kitchen that utilise energy-saving induction systems, regardless of the power supply in your kitchen.
