Ice Rink Food Service
       The food service in ice rinks can range from vending machines to a full compliment of a food court and full service sit down dinning.

       The rink's skating clubs, associations, or leagues will host games, meets, tests, competitions, shows, and ice carnivals that require feeding the volunteers that make these events possible.

       The food preparation area does not have to be a professional commercial food preparation and service setup, but it should be at least equal to a kitchen in an average home that entertains frequent large parties. Suggested equipment includes:

  • Range with a minimum of 4 large burners
  • Oven with a cleaning cycle
  • Microwave oven
  • Large Refrigerator
  • Large Freezer
  • Commercial toaster
  • Large dual sink
  • Large prep table
  • Commercial dishwasher
  • Warming/holding table
  • Cold holding table
  • Assortment of pots and pans
  • Eating utensils and plates, bowls, glasses, coffee cups, etc.

Commercial Kitchen
       Good commercial kitchen design is important as no employee wants to work in an unorganized kitchen area where they are certain to get in each others way. A system of work stations and traffic is vital to avoid accidents as people move between refrigerated food storage, food preparation, cooking, food holding/service tables. 

       Every food preparation area must stress surfaces that are easy to keep clean. A large sink and automatic dish washer for  utensils, and large sink area for hand washing pots, pans, etc. must be provided with an area for trash, dirty dishes, and utensils to be returned.

       A one way access to the hot and cold food and the sit down tables must be apparent to consumers. A separate area for beverages should be provided to avoid congestion in the food service line.

       A full service recreation/training facility should incorporate a food service court, sit down restaurant, wine and beer, and liquor license plus banquet, wedding, and meeting rooms as the revenue stream can be an important factor in the overall profitability of the project. Various licenses and inspections are part of the process of the business of preparing and serving food commercially to the public.
