Commercial kitchen remodels are complex, requiring careful planning, attention to detail, and extensive experience. At Smith & Son, we’re the go-to commercial kitchen contractor for businesses throughout the Bay Area, consistently producing superior results backed by a streamlined process that ensures on-time delivery. 

As a commercial kitchen contractor based in Walnut Creek, we have in-depth knowledge of stringent health and safety codes that businesses must adhere to. Our personalized remodeling process will ensure you get the results you need while meeting the demands of your industry.

Commercial Kitchen Services

From full-scale remodels to upgrades and retrofits, our team at Smith & Son can provide the commercial kitchen contracting services you need.

Design and Layout Planning

For any food service business, efficiency is key—and that starts with thoughtful design. As a highly experienced commercial kitchen contractor, our team knows the ins and outs of optimizing your workflow to ensure the final design of your kitchen makes work more efficient, rather than hindering your team. Our in-house design-build services can help you envision your space.

Upgrades and Renovations

Make the most of your existing commercial kitchen through carefully planned and executed renovations. From new counters, flooring, or ventilation to high-efficiency appliances that will save on energy demands, we’ll help you maximize your renovation budget and deliver excellent results.

Kitchen Equipment Installation

Enhance your productivity, streamline your storage, and maximize space usage with expert racking system installation from Smith & Son. Our team will work with you to identify key storage needs and ensure your warehouse storage system is planned for maximum effectiveness.

Expansion Projects

As your business grows, so too will your commercial kitchen. Our team has a knack for getting the most out of any space, and we’ll work closely with your team to identify key needs and execute a commercial kitchen expansion that will blend seamlessly with your existing space.

Tenant Improvements

For those renting out their commercial space, it’s essential to have the commercial kitchen ready to use from day one. Our professional team will work with you to determine the ideal client and develop a space that will attract and serve high-value tenants for your space.

ADA Compliance Modifications

Accessibility is a crucial part of planning for any commercial space. If you’re working within an existing, older design, it may not be fully ADA compliant—and failure to comply can lead to significant ramifications. Partner with Smith & Son to plan a remodel that will meet accessibility codes without disrupting the established processes and workflows of your space.

Rebranding and Reconceptualizing

In some cases, an existing business model simply isn’t working—and your commercial kitchen shouldn’t hold you back from making necessary changes to meet market demands. Whether you’re rebranding or fully overhauling the operations of your business, our team can work with you to build out a new commercial kitchen design that will maximize your chances of success.

Seismic Upgrades

Here in California, all contingencies must be accounted for. Commercial kitchens are filled with valuable equipment and are a high-risk space during seismic activities. Protect your employees and your commercial space with seismic upgrades that will help to maintain the continuity of your business.

I have several reasons for highly recommending Smith & Son Inc. Our project was the installation of a composite deck over a worn out cement patio. Out of the three quotes we received, Lance Smith not only provided us with a detailed quote quickly, he was the only who followed up to discuss his quote. This discussion clarified our project and saved on the overall cost, putting us within budget. Lance recommended a decking material which we are extremely pleased with. Knowing we were eager to start, Lance found a way to begin our project much sooner than expected. His three man crew was led by a seasoned and experienced foreman, Noe, who checked in with us frequently to make sure we were satisfied. Noe took great pride in his work and was very eager to please. We are very happy with the finished project which exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to use Smith & Son again!

As a Real Estate Director with a portfolio that contains both commercial and residential properties, I am always managing construction in some capacity. After using Smith & Son for one project, they have become our go-to contractor for any and all construction needs. They have completed at least 6 major projects for us (not counting minor alterations and repairs) and the work has all been impeccable with all details paid close attention to. In addition to the quality of the work done, Lance is fantastic to work with. He is responsive, proactive, and up-front. Every project has been completed on-time, and, when any issues have arisen Lance has communicated them clearly with a plan already in place to address them. He will provide multiple options for projects and recommendations as to how things could be done better, more efficient, and less costly. Everyone I have interacted with at Smith & Son has been equally as fantastic, whether working in their office or onsite at jobs. I cannot recommend Smith & Son highly enough; you will not be disappointed.

I hired Smith & Son to remodel the home office in our backyard. After getting quotes from several contractors, meeting with Lance was like a breath of fresh air -- he was clear, detail oriented, on top of everything, and took ownership over the project. He cares about quality and is not in the business of squeezing money out of customers -- I feel like he was giving the advice he would give to a friend.

I knew the project was in good hands with him and his team in charge. We had great/easy communication throughout, Lance stopped by to check in on the details, and his team was great. We are really happy with the result and I would hire Lance again in a heartbeat.

If you are deciding between contractors for your project, hire Smith & Son!
