I am new to Chef Talk and wanted to say hello !
Currently I am a volunteer at a religious facility, my goal is to improve our facility by giving it a facelift and updating our commercial kitchen.
I have been in a discussion that I was hoping you could help with ?
Adjacent to our kitchen we have two rooms which should be used for servers set up and maintenance. One room has a mop sink the other is currently empty.
It has been proposed to put a washer and dryer in this empty room, this would require venting to the outside as well as drainage etc.
I personally feel this is not an appropriate place for the washer and dryer - just from a sanitation point of you. Also this room had work table for servers to set up before food service begins.
Hope this question and concern are clear ? Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback.
