Does size matter?… Yes. How to plan your bakery.


In this month’s post, we tackle an age-old question… how do you maximise the space in your bakery with the proper equipment?

If you’re overwhelmed by all the factors to take into consideration when starting a new bakery… don’t worry, you’re not alone. Getting started down this path isn’t easy but then again, nothing worth doing is.

To help all you aspiring entrepreneurs or those who want to optimise their current production, we’re helping you select the right equipment based on the size of your bakery. For this month, we’re taking a look at smaller sized facilities, 30m2 and 50m2… read on.

30m2 Bakeries – Big things come in small packages

plan your bakery 30m2

If you think 30 m2 of space is too cramped to offer any sort of efficient and comfortable workspace for your team… well, you might want to think again. Great leaps in technology mean that some of the most high-tech equipment can easily fit into the smallest of spaces… and deliver great results too.

What you’re looking for is equipment that doesn’t take up too much space, is relatively easy to move around, and packs a lot of punch when it comes to delivering the goods. As mentioned above, technology means that you don’t necessarily have to stick to the basics to fill up your 30 m2 of space. So what do you need? It’s all listed below:

  1. Spiral Mixer Spiral EvO TL 110
  2. Planetary mixer Saturne 3
  3. Mac Pan pastry sheeters
  4. Electric deck oven Orion EvO 801/4.120
  5. Paneotrad EvO
  6. Blast freezer BSP 46.15
  7. Convection oven Krystal 46.10
  8. Retarder-proofer cabinet BFA

50 m2 bakeries – 20m2 of extra options

plan your bakery 50m2

20 M2 of extra space gives you much more wiggle room to add important equipment to your bakery’s productivity. So, if you’re on the fence on whether to splash the cash on some extra real estate, you might want to consider the advantages before saying no. Here’s the floor plan and equipment below:

  1. Water cooler Fonto
  2. Water meter Domix
  3. Spiral mixer Spiral EvO
  4. Concorde 4 and Mercure 4 Dough dividers
  5. Convection oven Krystal 46.10
  6. Modular oven Soleo
  7. Blast freezer BSP
  8. Retarder-proofer BFA
