As Americans, we know our pizza. In reality, we're actually the experts. Consider these statistics:

The numbers don't lie. And if so many American's know pizza, it's up to Pacific Northwest operators to provide the quality and variety that today's diners are looking for on pizza night.

As a result, today's pizza operators face an increasing range of challenges: Expanding topping variety, providing higher quality, efficiently handling capacity, ensuring customer safety, space and storage issues, and more.

There is rising demand for doing more in a limited amount of space, as some operations even look to menu items outside of pizza in order to attract and please a wider audience of diners. In such a fast-paced market, it's more important than ever to adapt quickly while attracting these selective customers and raising profits.

Pizza prep tables can be an easy solution to help solve some of these problems. 

Pizza prep tables allow pizza restaurants the ability to do more with less. Whether standard or custom designed, a prep table can hold foods at the exact temperatures needed, regardless of the ambient temperature of the kitchen. This is possible with Randell's wrapped wall systems that provide specific temperature control in even the toughest kitchen environments.

At the same time, a well designed prep table will facility kitchen workflow — not only increasing productivity, but making cleanup more efficient than ever. Operators want consistency in their menu items and Randell prep tables provide one less area to be concerned about providing consistent food temperatures. And with more prep tables to choose from than any other manufacturer — including options for pizza, sushi, sandwiches, salads, Mexican and chicken chains in addition to the fastest growing fast/casual chain in the US — Randell is truly a one-stop source for a full spectrum of foodservice applications.
