Tableware is said to be the 3rd biggest focus in a restaurant after food & decor, so when purchasing for a new or existing establishment make sure you keep these 6 things in mind:
Consideration 1: Budget
Before making any purchase, buyers should know exactly how much they plan to spend. If necessary, shoppers can purchase the essentials and allocate more money for additional pieces later. Not only does it help you make quicker decisions but it also aids us with any help you may need.
Consideration 2: Number of People
Covers – How many people do you plan on covering at your restaurant or are you an events company who may serve anywhere between 50 – 500 people? Plan for possible changes in your calendar, for example, new years eve you may serve more than usual. It is also a good idea to have few extra pieces in case of breakage or unexpected guests.
Consideration 3: Level of Formality and Purpose
The right dinnerware is also dependent on how it is used. You should choose dinnerware that matches the environment you want to create. In some cases, it may be appropriate to buy two or more sets of dinnerware, one for lunch everyday use and one for evening settings etc. Shoppers should also factor in how the dishes are used, such as whether they are carried outside to the patio or only used indoors. Finally, if dinnerware is handled by children, shoppers may want to invest in something lightweight and durable for your younger customers.
Consideration 4: Material
As mentioned, dinnerware can be made from a variety of materials. These include porcelain, bone china, earthenware, stoneware, ironstone, as well as glass or melamine. And brand new in at Chefs tableware we now have our Eco-friendly range – Vegware!
Consideration 6: Tableware Shape, Color, and Pattern
No shopper should feel limited in his or her choices for dinnerware. There is much more available than simple white plates, so it is easy to find something that suits individual tastes and preferences. Look for rustic patterns , or square and other unconventional plate shapes with bold colors for a contemporary look. However, be sure the look of the dinnerware coordinates with the rest of the room and table setting. A space that is already filled with bright colours can benefit from neutral-colored plates such as an ivory, but use dinnerware to add a pop of color to an otherwise calm, neutral design.
Shoppers should also coordinate the color scheme with a tablecloth and napkins, as well as the stemware and flatware. It is easy to find both of the latter items in simple and contemporary designs.
