Primary and Secondary Education Foodservice Operations Design Consultation

When it comes to serving students at your school, accessibility and efficiency are the key to a successful program. Chances are, most of the students will be eating around the same time, which means a large influx of people need to be able to move through your your cafeteria (and get their food quickly) without issue. Too expansive of a design will leave your employees scurrying to have all the bases covered, and too restrictive of a design will result in a long line or constricting crowd that will have students leaving to eat elsewhere.

This design should be influenced by a number of different factors, such as the amount of students expected during “rush hour,” the number of food options you plan to offer, and the workflow of your kitchen.

If you want all of this and more taken into account when building or redesigning your college foodservice area, contact Rapids Contract & Design today. Our professionals have both the experience and the know-how to create a cafeteria everyone will be happy with. Some of our cafeteria designs have even won awards!

CADD design for your college or university – Don’t wait to see what the end result will be – Rapids has computer-aided design and drafting that will make your design come to life before construction begins. You can even request a 3D walkthrough!

Interior design consulting – Make sure your cafeteria design is something that attracts students and encourages them to stop by again. Rapids has an LEED-certified interior designer on staff, so you can rest assured that your final project will look great and save you money with energy-efficient designs.

Cafeteria concept development – Food isn’t the only thing that will bring students to your cafeteria. The experience is also important. Rapids can help with that by working with you to put together an effective approach and incorporating your needs into every facet of the design.

Kitchen design for Schools – Having the right kitchen setup and equipment can be instrumental in improving your production process. Just tell Rapids what you need your kitchen to do, and we can come up with a plan that covers everything from storage to properly powerful equipment to convenience and more.

Project management and coordination – Communication can make or break a project. Don’t let that happen to you. Rapids has a team leader that will coordinate not only the design process but also all of the construction contractors, equipment vendors, and permitting officials to ensure construction compliance.

Don’t just take our word for it. Take a look our Kirkwood and Coe College project portfolios to see what we can bring to the table.
