Investing in the right tableware can be one of the most important decisions a restaurant operator can make. Here are some useful tips from Nick Mowat of Churchill Canada for choosing new tableware for your establishment:
Continuity of design – No one wants to invest in a new tableware product line to find out six months later it has been discontinued. Check that your choice of china has good long-term continuity or ask about continuity guarantees from the manufacturer.
Local stock availability – Before committing to a line, ask about lead times or local stocking dealers for delivery. If you have a function on Saturday night and you realize on Friday morning that you are short on side plates, you want to ensure you can get them quickly.
