The term “smallwares” encompasses hundreds of different products – everything from utensils to cookware for the kitchen, and glassware to dinnerware for the dining room. Cleaning supplies including mops, brooms, and buckets are also considered smallwares.
While going through the design process and choosing new equipment is the first thing people think of when opening a new restaurant, smallwares should never be put on the back burner. After all, your customers probably never see the equipment in the kitchen, but they do see the dinnerware, glassware, and flatware in the dining room.
Every detail of your dining establishment has the ability to make an impression for the better or for the worst. Smallwares are no different. Since a customer’s perception is strongly influenced by your tabletop, cheap flatware paired with elegant Homer Laughlin china is never recommended. Your tabletop should always compliment the quality of the food being served.
At Dine Company, we stock smallwares from Browne, Carlisle, Cambro, Winco, Homer Laughlin, ITI, Libbey, Anchor Hocking, and many more of the foodservice industry’s leading smallwares manufacturers in our Louisville, KY store. We have trained sales people who can help you determine the correct quantities needed in your new kitchen or dining room.
Free dinnerware, glassware, and flatware samples are available. We also offer discounts on opening smallwares packages as well as free local delivery on smallwares orders over $150. See a Dine Company Customer Care associate for more information.
