The national average of a newly constructed restaurant facility is $75 sq/ft; for a 4,000 sq/ft building. This of course is just the cost of construction; without land, equipment, furnishings, etc. The mistake of specifying an indoor walk-in can be very costly, as it’s the literal equivalent of paying for the same space twice! So, when purchasing an 8’ x 20’ indoor walk-in unit, you’ll have to add $12,000 to the cost of your walk-in. (8’ x 20’ = 160 sq/ft x $75.00 = $12,000).
On the other hand, an 8’ x 20’ outdoor walk-in cooler or freezer from Polar King is easily set on a concrete slab outside of your building and is an attractive match to your exterior décor. Plus, you’ve now gained $12,000 worth of interior space to use for something else.
