New Dishware Freshens Up Look of Restaurants

Dinner plateThe other day I was out eating at a local sports bar. I happened to notice the dishware brought to our table was of different patterns. It seems that businesses do not fully realize the impression they are leaving on patrons by serving food on old mismatched, out-of-date dishware. Adding new dishware is a simple way of creating a new look for any restaurant, bar, deli, bakery, or pizzeria. Next time you feel you may need new dishware for your business, you’re probably right.  Dishware is not costly and running low on dishware regularly happens in fast-moving restaurants where plates and dishes are easily broken.

Check out Burkett and browse our complete line of quality dishware at a very affordable price.

Used Restaurant Equipment And Your Business

If looking to buy restaurant equipment, you may be considering the option to buy used. Know what you’re getting into before jumping in head first. Used restaurant equipment has many pros and cons. Let’s examine a few of these.

PROS: You save money! Used restaurant equipment can be nearly half the price of that same new product. More often than not, used restaurant equipment isn’t so old.  Many restaurants go out of business within the first two years leaving many used units available for sale.

CONS: Using used restaurant equipment can be a risky choice by some owners. Whether it be too old for your staff to figure out how to work it or simply old parts corrupting the unit to go bad. Used restaurant equipment may not look as good as a brand new unit. If your customers plan on seeing the unit on an everyday basis, such as merchandisers and display cases, you must be sure it is free from defects.

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO AVOID THE CONS:  Avoiding risky used restaurant equipment can be simple. Look for warranties on your used restaurant equipment. Is your equipment reconditioned or refurbished? If so your unit will last much longer than a normal piece of used restaurant equipment. You can often negotiate special pricing when dealing with used restaurant equipment.

Check out Burkett Restaurant Equipment’s website for a great selection of used restaurant equipment. All items are reconditioned and come with an industry-best 90-day parts and labor warranty!
