Design

 

Let Horizon's design team bring your vision to life.

Horizon designs professional cooking environments that harmoniously blend creativity, productivity and bottom-line results. Whether you're designing your very first kitchen, or you're an old pro, our seasoned design team will help you create a cooking space that will delight your staff service after service.

 

We'll work with you, your architect, interior designer and construction team to ensure that the heart and soul of your operation—the kitchen—is executed with the precision of detail you demand.

 

AT HORIZON, THE BACK OF HOUSE RIDES ON THE FRONT OF THE BUS.

 

Chef in Restaurant

 

How odd it is for some restaurant consultants to insist the front of the house is where the revenue is generated in the operation, and the kitchen is the money-sucking pit that should be made ever smaller and cheaper, until staff are pressed shoulder-to-shoulder, cooking over a barrel fire in the alley.

 

At Horizon, we recognize the back of the house for what it truly is—the heart and soul of the operation—with staff who deserve to work in a cooking environment that respects and maximizes their talents. We partner with architects, designers and general contractors who share our vision for empowering and prioritizing back of the house staff.

 

FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION FOLLOWS COOKING.

When you add Horizon to your design/build team, you're adding a voice to the mix that knows, respects and prioritizes the cooking process. We are dedicated foodservice professionals, with a chef, baker and cook on staff. We take the equipment and its intricacies every bit as seriously as other project partners take the visual aesthetics or the construction process. 

 

You can't expect design and construction generalists to keep up with all the advances in foodservice equipment. Let us keep you on the cutting edge, while ensuring you get the very best value out of every piece of equipment.

With years of experience designing, outfitting and building cooking spaces, Horizon will integrate with your design/build team on any level. Plug us in with your architect, designer or general contractor, or simply share with us your concept, menu, production goals, staffing and budget and let us create a unique kitchen design for you from scratch. We're team players committed to delighting our customers no matter what role we're assigned on a remodel or new construction project.

 

Our design team will optimize your cooking environment, matching menu selection to equipment specifications, analyzing workflow traffic patterns and improving cooking ergonomics. The result is what we call Chef Centric Design. For you it simply means a better shift, night after night.

THE FOOD PRO ON YOUR CONSTRUCTION TEAM.

Architects and general contractors like having Horizon on their teams because we have the experience to get the job done right. We think through all the details necessary to install foodservice equipment properly, and understand how these details impact every member of the build team. We coordinate with contractors to prepare your space for equipment installation. We get in and out of the job site quickly. We help you get the inspections and approvals you need. And, we finish the details that often get overlooked.

 

Our professionalism and experience helps the project stay on time and budget—and reduces stress for everyone involved. That's why Horizon gets asked to handle foodservice projects for the same architects and general contractors over and over again. Let us put our experience and reputation to work for you.
