The search for your restaurant dishes

Apr 8, 2008
You may not be able to wait until it is time to open the doors of your restaurant and start servings food. Have you stopped to consider though what you will serve it on? This is an important part of the design and visual appeal of the foods you serve so give it some serious attention. There are many choices and so you can find what works best for you. Make sure it is going to last a long time though so you aren't continually replacing the dishes.

Think about the way in which you will have the dishes washed at your restaurant. Doing them by hand has definitely become almost obsolete. Therefore you need to make sure the dishes you choose are going to hold up well to the dishwashing method you have in place. You don't want the designs to come off or to fade during this washing process.

In your search for restaurant dishes you will find that the colors and the patterns are plentiful. Try to find what will fit very well in the current decor you have for the business. You will also notice several shapes of dishes you can purchase. You can go with round ones, oval, and even a square should you want something more original.

Don't forget that you will need to get the dishes in various sizes. Not all of your meals will fit well on the same size of plates. If you will be serving advertisers and side dishes you will need something to accommodate them as well. Try to choose items that will accessorize well with the style of restaurant that you are operating.

Dishes get moved around a great deal in a restaurant so they can crack, chip, and shatter. Make sure your staff is very careful with them so that they will last. Should they come upon one that has such issues it should be thrown out instead of continued to be used to serve foods on. This is simply too dangerous and not good business at all.

How many dishes do you need to buy? This can be a very tricky question. You definitely need enough for every table in your restaurant to be full of people and each one of them to have a plate in front of them. You never want to have to hold up being able to serve meals due to not having any clean plates.

The price of dishes for your restaurant is something you will also need to be very prepared for. It can be one of those high overhead expense initially so that you can get enough of them. Make sure you keep the information on where you got them and the identifying information for when you need to order them again in the future.

What are you going to serve your guests on? You have plenty of amazing choices in this area so don't stress about it. Enjoy taking the time to look around so you can narrow down what you are interested in. Once you find those that are the right design and the right price you can proceed with buying them.
