Designing Food Shops requires different sills compared to other retail spaces. Firstly of all you need to consider the complexity of a public space that is subject to stringent hygiene and health and safety requirements. Also there is the functionality to consider. the space needs to work in that it is planned to avoid overloading, maintaining the flow of both workers, consumers and the food itself. Colours, Furniture, Materials and Lighting all need to be carefully selected to show off the food. With separate chapters on Exterior Design, Space Design, Food Service Counters, Display and Fixtures and Fittings the book uses full colour examples from different stores including Snog, Polka Gelato, Raoul's, Bea's of Bloomsbury and William Curley's in London alongside many other's from around the world.
