A restaurant or catering business that is starting out, needs to think of everything; from the furniture, the equipment required to the crockery, cutlery and décor. Yet, it is not uncommon for some of the requirements to be neglected. Usually, certain “small” essential aspects of running a good restaurant or catering outfit can get lost in the chaos.
Of all the overlooked details of catering, cutlery is the most commonly neglected, even when it can be the most important aspect of any good catering business. Think about it this way; you use the best ovens, refrigerators, grills and cookers to produce the best food possible. But no customer will see the food making process or be witness to how perfectly your grill works. The end-customer is confronted by the mean on a plate with cutlery around it. As much as the quality of food, the cutlery and dinnerware can mean the difference between whether they are a repeat-client or customer or not.
How to Choose the right Cutlery
So, right after you’ve selected the furniture, catering equipment and décor for your restaurant ,it is time to settle on the cutlery your customers and clients are going to use. The first thing to think about when purchasing cutlery for your business is the theme of the restaurant or event. You may not be able to get just the right combination of colors unless you get them custom made. But you can choose cutlery that match the general appeal of your restaurant. For instance contemporary pieces will fit into any modern theme.
You should also settle on whether you want light or heavy cutlery. If you are opening or running a restaurant, it may be a good idea to get heavy cutlery since they last longer and will offer you better service. The same is true if you run a catering business and prefer to hire, rather than buy your cutlery. That’s because heavy cutlery indicates style and the pieces are less likely to get lost.
But while you are choosing heavy cutlery, it is just as important to take note of the people you will be serving. If most of your clients re children, it may be better to buy or hire light and colorful cutlery.
