Commercial restaurant dinnerware should be bought with the expectations of your dining customer in mind. Are you offering an expensive fine dining experience at an upscale bistro? Is your restaurant a neighborhood coffee shop where people can find affordable dinners?
Things you should consider when buying restaurant dinnerware include:
- Value - Is it worth the price you are paying?
- Beauty - Will it enhance the dining experience?
- Durability - Will it last beyond the initial purchase?
Mix and match restaurant dinnerwareGive you restaurant an eclectic look with an assortment of commercial dishware. Look for plates and bowls in the same size, but with different patterns and designs. Mixing restaurant dishware also allows you to pick up discontinued patterns at clearance prices and not have to worry about finding matching pieces later on.
Consider restaurant plastic dinnerwareDepending on your menu, restaurant concept or theme, you may want to use restaurant dishware. Plastic dinnerware for restaurants is inexpensive and highly durable. However, plastic does not dress up a table setting the way restaurant quality dinnerware does.
Save money by purchasing wholesale dinnerware for restaurantsYou can save a lot of money when opening a restaurant by buying in bulk. Most vendors of restaurant dinnerware provide wholesale prices, when buying in large quantities. You may even be able to get a better deal if you buy all your restaurant dinnerware (plates, bowls, glasses, coffee mugs, etc.) through the same supplier.
Think beyond dinner platesWhile dinner plates are often the main attraction at any restaurant, glasses and serving containers are also important parts of any dining experience. Serving drinks in unique glasses is another way to dress up ordinary items, such as cocktails and beverages. Serve tea and coffee in colorful mugs and teapots, to make a statement with your table setting.
- Customize commercial dishware with your restaurant name or logo for added appeal. However, it can take up to two months, so order the dishes early.
