What does it cost for a commercial kitchen fit out?

A kitchen fit out can be an expensive undertaking, easily requiring up to 75% of your budget for a new establishment. The cost of your commercial kitchen fit out of course, depends on the size of kitchen and on the quality of the equipment you need. On this basis, larger commercial kitchens will cost a lot more and need more heavy duty equipment than a small corner café.

At Jeb Built, we offer professional kitchen renovations in Brisbane that are both affordable and completed within your time frame. In general, the cost of a complete kitchen fit out can range from around $15,000 to $100,000 or more, according to your specifications. Let’s look at some of the costs involved in fitting out commercial kitchens for both new establishments and for renovations.

  • Design and project manager: The layout and design of commercial kitchens can have a big impact on the success or failure of your business, so it can be worthwhile employing both a designer and a project manager to keep everything on track. Poor layouts, overblown budgets and extended time frames can cause you no end of problems, so it is usually safer to bring in the experts at the start. Expect to pay at least 15% of your budget on hiring these professionals.
  • High quality equipment: A designer will help you to select the right equipment for your kitchen fit out, giving you a number of options at different prices and enabling you to stay within your budget. Installing top of the line equipment in a small family run business that simply needs an updated commercial kitchen fit out can sometimes be counterproductive. Expect to pay at least 70% of your budget on purchasing top of the line equipment.
  • Electrics and plumbing: We all know that trades can be expensive, which is why it is sensible to engage a builder who has their own trades and who is experienced in project managing commercial kitchen renovations in Brisbane. Expect to pay at least 15% of your budget on hiring trades for your kitchen fit out.
