3 Types of Serving Equipment for Your Restaurant

3 Types of Serving Equipment for Your Restaurant

No matter how busy your restaurant gets, you can’t succeed without the necessary equipment.

No matter how busy your restaurant gets, you can’t succeed without the necessary equipment. Serving customers in a timely fashion is important for keeping them happy, and most importantly, to ensure that they keep coming back for more. Capitalize on your success with these types of serving equipment.


The spoons that your guests have soup or dessert with are not the only spoons you will need. You’ll also need to have serving spoons in your restaurant too. Solid serving spoons, perforated spoons, and slotted spoons are all must-haves. For the best results, you will need different shapes and sizes to help accommodate the food that you serve. Different equipment materials will also perform differently, so you will need to think long and hard about whether plastic is better than stainless steel or not.


Whether or not you are running a buffet, serving trays make a difference too. Let’s say that you are planning a brunch event for an upcoming special occasion, such as Mother’s Day. It’s never too early to start stocking up for it. The trays you choose can be different sizes, shapes, and materials. Round and rectangular trays can help, depending on what you’re offering. Mirror trays are also aesthetically pleasing, especially for fancier foods, and divided trays can be a huge hit, especially if you are serving two types of food that are traditionally considered a set, such as chips and dip, or fruits and vegetables.


Finally, take a minute to consider what kind of bowls you might need. Soup bowls, fruit bowls, salad bowls, pasta bowls, and casserole dishes are all necessities. Then there are the materials to consider, such as metal, plastic, wood, ceramic, and glass. It all depends on what you’re serving and the aesthetic of your facility; a coffee shop and a dinner theatre will be different than a fine dining establishment.
