Restaurant equipment is not cheap. And we all know the restaurant business is not an easy one. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication by everyone involved. Maintaining your equipment can save you money in the long run. Yes you may have to put up some cash to pay for routine maintenance and repairs, but the cost of one of your major equipment pieces breaking down could shut you down for good.
One restaurant owner of a large chain recently described the scene of one of his locations that had a fan go out. The belt on the fan broke above the grill and the kitchen filled with smoke within minutes causing panic and forcing them to shut down for the night. The loss of revenue plus the cost of having a repair company come by afterhours could have been avoided had simple maintenance been applied. Learning from this incident, the owner now makes sure he has a preventive maintenance plan in place at all his locations.
Equipment maintenance is one thing but having a reliable and available repair team in your area is very important too.

You should look at preventative maintenance as like that on cars. You can drive a car a long time without ever rotating the tires or changing the oil. But when it breaks down and needs to be repaired, it is going to cost you a lot more than the simple maintenance would have. And just like your car, preventative maintenance will also increase the longevity of the equipment in your restaurant and make it more efficient.
