When it comes time to purchase a new dishwasher, be sure you get one that fits your capacity needs. Take the number of seats in your restaurant and multiply that by the number of meals per table you serve during your average rush period. After you have that number, multiply it by the number of dishes used for each place setting.
For example, let’s say your restaurant seats 100. If you serve six meals per table during a rush period, take 100 x 6 and arrive at 600. Let’s say each place setting utilizes four pieces of dishware. 100x6x4 = 2,400. That means you need a washer with the capacity to clean 2,400 dishes an hour.
