Making money in the restaurant industry is not easy, and this is especially true if you are constantly calling in a restaurant appliance repair technician. Are you suffering appliance anxiety at your new restaurant? You might wonder if you should subcontract your restaurant appliance repairs or fix them using an in-house repair technician.
Why You Should Consider Subcontractors
Subcontracting in the restaurant industry is cost efficient and reduces risk. Don’t hire an in-house appliance repair technician full-time. Save money by enlisting a subcontractor when your appliances need service. A subcontractor alleviates the need to pay an employee a full-time salary when you don’t need any services.
Increase Your Productivity with Appliance Repair Technicians
Don’t bog down your full-time technician with mundane tasks. Increase your restaurant’s productivity by hiring a subcontractor for short-term projects. Hiring a subcontractor also frees up your time to work on other valuable projects. Properly functioning appliances are critical to your restaurant’s success. A subcontractor can perform routine services that alleviate the hassle of daily breakdowns.
Use Repair Techs to Avoid Hefty Bills
By maintaining a consistent routine maintenance service with a professional contractor, you can avoid hefty repair bills when a major appliance malfunctions. Subcontractors can change your air conditioner’s filter, clean the condenser coils on your freezers and beverage coolers, service your ice machines and perform routine maintenance on your commercial ovens. After all, it is cheaper to maintain your appliances using a subcontractor than to repair your equipment when it malfunctions.
Appliance Repair Techs Bring Specialized Knowledge
Keeping a specialist on staff to maintain and repair your appliances is not cost effective, especially if you don’t have an ongoing need for a technician. However, a subcontractor brings specialized appliance repair knowledge when you need it. Having a specialist on hand when an exhaust fan malfunctions is handy, but you never know when it will happen. A professional contractor with specialized knowledge can resolve the problem in minutes. You can avoid shutting down your operation because your restaurant is full of smoke.
Setting Aside a Percentage of Sales for Appliance Repair
Most restaurants have fixed and variable expenses. A big portion of the variable expenses are a direct result of unpredictable maintenance and repairs. A subcontractor will help you build a budget that prevents your appliances from malfunctioning, and you can use that budget to set aside a percentage of your sales for unexpected maintenance costs. By building a preventative maintenance schedule with an experienced appliance repair subcontractor, you will increase the longevity of your equipment tenfold.
