What is the usual connection method of commercial cooking equipment in the center of a room. When there is no kneewall.
I saw one example where the wires were in a tubelike flex conduit, which looked strange to me. Perhaps it was temporary or a replacement of equipment required rerouting of power? Odd, what's your opinions?
As someone who worked in fast-food (yikes!) for years, go with the ceiling drop cords. We had those, the floor junction boxes, & the poles. The floor boxes provide a fantastic fireworks display when mopping, and both pole & floor boxes are easily destroyed when moving equipment around. We finally installed ceiling drops with (quick disconnects?) - they were the only reliable & safe connection.

For taller equipment like the stand up friges I like the twist rec on the cieling. Strut mounted to the floor and structure with a pipe and a bell box. It can be solid but they are limited to making adjustments to equip. locations. It tame more time to do. If you get some place that gets what ever used eqipment that is on special it's not the best chioce. Before your done they will have replaced the bad equipment with something different. I like the SO twist cord idea. More flexable in layout.
