Manual Soap Dispensers

Manual soap dispensers are a common choice amongst restaurant owners. They’re the universal option where you push a button to dispense the soap. These dispensers do not require batteries for less maintenance and have a traditional look that everyone recognizes. However, these can become a bit messy over time, and it is tough to control over a user’s portion size.

Automatic Soap Dispensers

Automatic soap dispensers are another common option and a more popular choice among restaurant and business owners. They have a touchless operation, reduces cross-contamination, and have a modern look that everyone can appreciate. It incorporates helpful indicator lights and has controlled portioning, so not too much soap is dispensed all at once. One con is that it runs on batteries that contributes to extra expenses.


How often will your restaurant’s soap dispensers be used? If you’ve got a few low-traffic areas, you might want to consider buying a liquid and foaming hand soap or sanitizer bottle. With push pumps that ensure simple dispensing, the bottle could be placed on the kitchen, bathroom, or work station’s stainless steel sink for easy convenience.


When deciding to buy a soap dispenser from H.C. Walterhoefer, consider where your dispensers will be placed. Will it be placed in a tight-fit spot? If so, there are space-saving units you could use for smaller restrooms or kitchens. If you decide to place them above your restaurant’s sinks, make sure to leave enough room between both the sink and dispenser so guests can effectively get their soap.
