Business and Industry Employee Cafeteria Design Consulting


Cedar Rapids, IA

There are a lot of companies out there competing with you for the best employees, and perks like an on-site kitchen and cafeteria can definitely play into their choice about where to work. Not only will this make it easy and convenient for them to get food, it also gives them a chance to socialize with coworkers over their break, building friendships that will increase their job satisfaction and longevity.

When you come to Rapids for your employee cafeteria design, you can rest assured that our experienced professionals will work with you to create a kitchen and dining area that streamlines the way your employees will get their food.

One of the most important aspects is facility planning and layout. If you have a great cafeteria that offers a ton of meal options at affordable prices but it takes 25 minutes for an average person (with a half-hour lunch break) to get their food, chances are employees will start going elsewhere. Rapids will create a layout that makes choosing food, paying for food, and finding a place to sit as efficient as possible.

Another crucial focus should be variety. While some people are happy to eat the same food day in and day out, many are not. You also want to be able to appease both those people who want to eat a healthy meal each day, and those who prefer a few more comfort food choices. Ensure you are able to provide a number of different options throughout the week with a flexible kitchen setup.

While full-service cafeterias are an excellent asset to have, if your company is only comprised of a few employees, that might not be a feasible option for you. Rapids can also create a staff kitchen and dining area that provides all the necessities for your employees to prepare their own meals!
