Equipment supporting bakery production includes island worktables with sinks, a baker's table, ingredient bins, a 30-quart mixer, a 60-quart mixer, a proofing cabinet, a pair of double-stacked convection ovens and a proofing cabinet. Cooking equipment in the catering production area includes a 6-burner range with an oven beneath, 2 combi ovens, a 40-gallon tilting braising pan and a char- broiler. Additional equipment includes a slicer, vertical cutter/mixer, mobile can rack and dunnage racks. An ice maker with a bin also sits in this area. A large custom outdoor air unit that supplies makeup air to the production kitchens' exhaust hoods sits in a service yard used for shipping and deliveries. "This was necessary because the roof has load-bearing limitations," Harrison says. "The exhaust hoods operate at variable rates depending on what's cooking below." The dishwashing area separates school meal production from catering pro- duction. This area contains a disposal, a high-powered pot sink and a flight-type dishwasher repurposed from a school site. A janitor's area sits nearby. The Chef Demonstration Kitchen and The Silo Eatery Foodservice training takes place in three meeting rooms and the chef demonstra- tion kitchen, complete with 56 seats and overhead LED monitors. Instructors prepare menu items in a mini production kitchen that includes a 20-quart mixer, a 30-gallon tilting braising pan, a 10-pan steamer, a 4-burner range with an oven beneath, a convection oven, a combi oven, and several mobile utility carts and pan racks. Windows allow visitors and employees to watch production. ON-SITE PROFILE Above: Employees take and assemble orders at The Silo Eatery.
