    Hello everyone,

    i am planning to starting up a new small cafe business, i have found the exsisting business (currently take away business).
    question is:
    1. kitchen set up: does it have to be industrial/heavy duty (bench, storage) or can we use custom made by carpenter or even use ikea’s products)
    2.kitchen equipment: stove top and oven can we use the home appliance, ( industion stove etc)
    3. Range Hood: does it has to be industrial?

    Note: the take away shop currently operates with electric appliance and household exhaust fan, just wondering if it fit in with the regulation.

    fact: small shop with not more 30 seats.

    thank you,
    o

    Cafes are hard work, and only a few make good money.

    Anyway, here is a good start (if you’re in NSW?) – http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/retail/cafes-restaurants-and-retail-outlets

    Cheers

    HI [USER=101046]@octora[/USER] – you should checkout this post: https://www.foodagent.com.au/single-post/2017/09/01/How-to-avoid-buying-a-business-you-cant-operate You will need to make applications to council for your food licence, and it doesn’t matter what the current operator has, you will need to meet the current standards.
    Generally kitchens will need to be easily cleaned so the risk of passing any bugs on to customers is minimised. You should contact council for the area the shop is in as a first step to make sure you understand what you need to do as they can vary.
    Happy to help out more if you have more questions!
