About Us

It is our goal at Insight Foodservice Consultants to provide our clients with an independent, positive and integrative experience while presenting them with an exceptional design that exceeds their expectations.

Our foodservice design team work closely with each client and their preferred design team to identify their individual needs and ideas and help bring them to reality.  With the given budget in mind, we strive for creativity in our design solutions in order to maximize efficiency that best suit the operational needs of our clients within the given spatial parameters. We are not affiliated with any one manufacturer or supplier of equipment therefore we carefully select each piece of equipment with consideration of client budget, functionality, menu and energy efficiency.

Once approved by the Client, our foodservice design team will develop the kitchen plans into working construction drawings and obtain approval from the local Environmental Health Officer. Our design team incorporates the latest trends in food service design, incorporating functionality and flow into each and every project.

Our design team is in constant communication with the client and entire design coordinating plan details as the project develops. This is essential in order to ensure a seamless and successful project from start to finish and help ease the mind of the Client as they watch their project come to life.
