e have several friends who are in the restaurant business and bed and breakfast business. One friend started from scratch – had to totally remodel and home and start off with the very basics to get their business up and running. Another friend purchased a coffee shoppe that she had been working in for many years that was well established and had the required equipment that was needed. With both businesses, either for starting out or to replace or add too, items eventually have to be purchased from a Restaurant Supply source.
I can only imagine for a business starting out, all the Restaurant Equipment that needs to be thought of, even if it’s just for a part-time cafe! The list may begin with a toaster, coffee pots, flatware, cleaning supplies, dinnerware, cleaning supplies, linens . . . even simple things like can openers and paring knives.
For a bed and breakfast, even more needs to be purchased such as bed supplies, bathroom towels, shower curtains, bath mats, radio clocks, an iron, hairdryer, etc. This is just the beginning of the things to be checked off that needs to be purchased for Hospitaliy Supplies & Hotel Catering Supplies.
Take a look the next time you go into a little cafe or your favorite Bed and Breakfast. There’s lots of details that need to be thought of in making the business even take-off, just as it does the common household.
