Planned Routine Maintenance 

The best way to minimize downtime in your restaurant is to invest in a proactive approach to foodservice equipment maintenance. That’s why Service My Restaurants offers Planned Routine Maintenance as one of our primary services, partnering with your restaurant to help keep your critical foodservice equipment in ideal condition to help prevent or better plan around equipment repairs or replacements that may cause downtime or service stoppages.

Planned Routine Maintenance with Service My Restaurants includes thorough inspections and adjustments of all your foodservice equipment and provides detailed pictures and feedback on the condition of your store. Using this information, you will be better able to plan on upcoming repairs and installations or make necessary adjustments to meet the high standards you hold for your business.

Proactive cleaning and calibrations ensure equipment is operating properly for your employees and customers to address any issues with operations. Poorly maintained and dirty equipment will eventually break down.

When it does, the domino effect can severely impact the operation of your restaurant or facility, both disrupting the workflow of your kitchen as well as the quality of service you are able to provide to your customers. Our Planned Maintenance Program will extend your equipment life while significantly reducing the breakdown and repair expenses.

Changing a restaurant’s service and repair mindset from an emergency break and fix approach to one of prevention and proactive care and support not only creates a stronger environment, but is critical in reducing equipment downtime and expensive emergency calls. SMR currently has maintenance programs for greater Indiana and northern Kentucky markets.

Service My Restaurants Planned Routine Maintenance begins with an initial visit to your restaurant to review and log all the equipment inside your restaurant. This gives us a better idea of your business, how best to approach your unique situation, and allows us to create general report of equipment condition we can provide you as a starting point of reference for you that can be used to plan our next steps together.
