Commercial Painting: Restaurants, Cafeterias, Food Service

In a metro region like San Francisco, there is a nearly limitless variety of businesses, which gives commercial painting a nearly endless variety in our work! Among the clients we serve, painting restaurants and food service areas can create some interesting dynamics and challenges. For example, these photos come from a commercial painting project we recently finished in Oakland, California.

Painting food service facilities extends well beyond restaurants:

  • Hospital kitchens and cafeterias
  • Nursing home dining areas
  • Coffee shops and delis
  • Corporate office cafeterias
  • Catering kitchens
  • Hotels and conference centers
  • School and university cafeterias
  • Food production facilities (factories)

Special Considerations when Painting Food Service Areas

One of the most important factors to take into account when we paint a restaurant, commercial kitchen, or a cafeteria is avoidance of food contamination. During our preparation stage, we need to thoroughly seal off our work area to avoid dust, paint, or chemicals getting onto food preparation surfaces. Also, we need to be painstaking in our cleanup phase once the painting is done, so that all food processing is safe and healthy.

Another key feature in areas where food is prepared or served is the odor. Nobody wants to be smelling (or tasting) fresh paint as they eat. That is why we are careful to use ultra low-odor paints with zero VOC’s, meaning the only smell will be your delicious food!

Finally, our scheduling needs to coordinate seamlessly with your operational schedule as much as possible. After all, nobody wants to miss a meal! That’s why our commercial painting crews are prepared to work nights, weekends, holidays, or whenever it works best for you, so that your downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.

Coordinating with Multiple Trades

When a food service area is experiencing a variety of renovations at once, it can seem like a crazy dance! All the tradespeople need to function in the same space, including plumbers, electricians, commercial painters, carpenters, and more, and every step needs to be completed in the right order.

MB Jessee is very experienced with this dance, and we deftly orchestrate our services so that we are not stepping on the toes of the other tradespeople!

Another way in which we can help this dance go smoothly is with our commercial carpentry division. When the carpenters and the painters all work for the same company, the coordination is much smoother and the job management is far simpler.

Customer Reviews

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

— Barbara

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Joshua Jansen

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

— Richard

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

— Jo

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”
