One area that your restaurant can specialize in is catering. Whether you need to help plan a large company event on your own site or you need to go somewhere else, having the right catering carts can make a big difference. Here is some more information about the options that you have!
Catering carts come in many varieties. As such, they’ll be made up of several different materials. You’ve got to choose the one that will serve you the best. Most of the time, you’ll come across carts made of metal, plastic, or some composite of the two. Although a metal cart is more durable, it can eventually dent, and whether you are running a buffet or a dim sum spot, that can look unappealing to your diners. Be wary of height problems with plastic carts, too.
Number of Shelves
Catering carts also have different configurations. This means they might have more shelves or fewer, depending on their design. Sometimes, vertical clearance is more important than overall storage space. It all depends on what food you need to transport from one part of the site to another. Two shelves should be enough, at least in most cases.
Types of Food
Next, consider the food that you are serving. Insulation can protect hot food and cold food at the same time. Depending on what you need, you can choose carts that are fabricated specifically for hot food, and some for cold food. Take a minute to think about the carts on airplanes, and that might give you a better idea of what to expect. As long as you can prevent the food from slipping into the temperature danger zone between 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you should be fine.
Repairs and Replacements
Now, let’s have a quick look at repairs and replacements that could become necessary over time. Casters will need to be fixed, especially when they break. Without them, the catering carts won’t roll as smoothly. Brakes are also crucial, especially when you need to protect hardwood floors.
