We have gathered up compact and useful foodservice equipment for a startup that fits a 20sqm space, or less, that we would recommend to any business-owners who are concerned with the floor space available.


Having a nice coffee shop and bakery always sounds so enticing until you have to think and decide which equipment works best, especially if there’s only specific space available for you to consider first and foremost.

Ice machine

There are countless numbers of benefits of having an ice machine, and having the right type of ice machine for your store, doesn’t only ensure the hygiene, but also economic, consistent and time efficient. A certain type of drinks may require a specific grammage of ice to be used in order to avoid a watered-down ice blended, or a certain type of ice can guarantee the quality of drinks you are serving. By choosing the right type of ice, you can easily project the type, quantity, and quality of drinks you are serving to the customers.

Running a restaurant, café, bakery, or any F&B facilities, takes a lot more than just buying and running foodservice equipment. Just like cars, any café or restaurant equipment requires a proper care, training, and service maintenance when the time comes. Most importantly, you will need a dependable distributor with a service team who offers consultation, service maintenance, spare parts, and availability when you need it the most, especially when you are looking for foodservice equipment for a startup.
