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

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

— Anja

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

— Anni S.
Oakland, CA

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

— Andrea Y.

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

— Beth

“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.”

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.
Livermore, CA

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”
