Top Restaurant Design Trends of 2021

KITCHEN DESIGN TRENDS

Many restaurants are making structural changes to their kitchen layouts and food pickup services in order to make their food more accessible to customers and their service speed more efficient. Here are the major changes in kitchen and restaurant design coming in 2021:

EXPRESS KITCHENS


Heading into 2021, we expect to see the rise of express kitchens. Inspired by social distancing rules caused by the pandemic, this new design takes the concept of a ghost restaurant up a notch. While ghost restaurants are just for delivery teams, customers will be allowed to visit these "kitchen-only" establishments to order and pick up food. Most locations will also accept phone and mobile orders. Unlike a standard restaurant, express kitchens won't feature a seating area, just an ordering kiosk and waiting area. Some locations may provide a full view of the kitchen so customers can experience all the sounds and smells of a standard restaurant.
