Restaurant Equipment Trends

Fast Food Restaurants Upgrading Interior

While full-service restaurants have always maintained unique, decorated interiors, fast-food restaurants have lagged behind. Recently, many QSRs (quick-service restaurants) have invested in hip and trendy design upgrades. For many this means "updated decor, using wood and metal touches." Doing a re-design means a close and “collaborative effort between a concept's designers and executives."

Sustainable Equipment/Décor

Going green isn't only great for the environment, but great for a restaurant's bottom line. Energy-efficient appliances and equipment can help cut energy costs and improve your environmental footprint. Energy Star provides a comprehensive list of cooking equipment products that are tested for energy efficiency.

Technology Additions

An increase in technology-loving customers means that restaurant owners are adapting new technologies to improve the dining experience. Expect to see lots of hand-on devices and entertainment equipment such as:

  • Digital media screens
  • Projectors
  • Self-ordering kiosks
  • POS tech

Whether it's new décor, sustainable products or technology upgrades, Tiger Leasing is ready to help your restaurant with an equipment leasing plan that fits your needs.
