A restaurant that is ready to enter the world of foodies needs to be prepared for anything. From the irresistible food to the impeccable interior, nothing is overlooked by you. With everything in place, you're both nervous and excited -- are you sure you've paid attention to every aspect? What about the restaurant's tableware?


Most restaurateurs, especially first-time operators, tend to miss one of the most important aspects of their business -- the cutlery. It may sound like an insignificant thing, but improper cutlery can have a significant negative impact on a restaurant. To avoid this, let's figure out what you need to keep in mind when buying tableware for your restaurant.


1. Refuse to buy limited edition tableware

While limited edition stock from premium brands may seem like enough to get your hands in your pockets, stop there. Anything that says "limited edition" is only limited. After a few months or years, the knives get dull and the spoons look scratched.


When you return to the store immediately to get the same set, the system will alert you to its "limited" status, which can cause problems. You will have to replace the entire cutlery because who wants to see two different spoons and knives in the same restaurant? So, skip it. 2.


2. Use specific cutlery

Forks, knives and spoons are almost everywhere. However, if you also serve dessert, you will also need a dessert spoon. Then there are seafood knives, steak and butter knives, oyster cutlery and soup spoons. When it comes to cutlery, there is no "one knife for all". Each dish requires a different cutlery. Don't be lazy. Find out what all the cutlery requirements are for your restaurant's dishes before you start your shopping spree.


3. Don't be cheap

Some operators may not want to spend a huge amount of money on cutlery, because it already costs a lot of money to open a restaurant. They try to save a few dollars while buying cutlery, but that may cost you a fortune instead. Cheap, quality dinnerware needs to be replaced more often than you think. Buying durable tableware one at a time will save you a lot of money in the future.


4. Maintenance issues

Choose stainless steel, the easiest to maintain and clean. The most common grade used in most restaurants is 18/10, meaning 18 parts nickel and 10 parts chromium. Stainless steel is very durable and easy to clean in the dishwasher because it is stain and scratch resistant.


5. What is the theme of your restaurant?

When it comes to style, you'll find plenty of options. Whether your dining room has vintage charm or is modern and vibrant, you'll need to find dinnerware that matches the style of your space. It also needs to be in sync with your tableware and furniture. Don't overdo the glitz and glamour. It will be difficult to clean.


6. Heavy or light?

You must have noticed that the tableware in fine dining is heavy. This is the most durable European tableware that will last for years and hardly ever get lost. Then there is the cheaper but less durable light tableware. It is not recommended to choose light tableware because it is also likely to be lost. Heavy-duty tableware is the most common. It is lighter than European tableware, but heavier than light tableware. It is hard and durable, and not very heavy in your pocket.


7. Thick or thin

Although cutlery is always similar in shape, you will notice that some forks and spoons have long, thin necks, while others are very wide. You can choose either one, depending on your choice, but make sure it's comfortable to handle and serve. Your customers won't want to eat something they can't hold properly, which may irritate them.


8. Try it out

You should never buy tableware in bulk until you try it for yourself. Don't make this mistake. What if you don't feel comfortable eating? Buy yourself a set and use it for a few days. If you're not happy with it, then go do something else. After all, it's your restaurant's reputation that's at stake.


9. Children's cutlery

The same heavy stainless steel cutlery is not possible for small children. Please prepare some brightly colored children's tableware for them. This is a great way to impress your customers by showing that you care about their children too.


10. Extras

If you are buying about one hundred pieces, buy two hundred pieces. This is just to keep the stock in case there is a loss or loss. You need to be prepared for such mishaps and not run to the store at the last minute to buy just one fork or knife.


The restaurant experience business may seem confusing at the beginning, but by making the right choices and using good restaurant software, it will become easy to manage. It is also necessary to choose a reliable vendor to buy from, such as Infull Cutlery, to get the right and superior quality products on the one hand, and to keep buying without worrying about things like out-of-stocks.
