If you own a restaurant, or are fortunate enough to have some of this great equipment in your home, here are a few resources to help you find the best deals on restaurant equipment and supplies.
Katom.com claims to be, “The Restaurant Equipment & Restaurant Supplies Superstore,” and I’ve found this to be pretty accurate. They have over 60,000 products at wholesale prices, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding what you’re looking for. They’ve also been around for 23 years, so you can trust they know what they’re doing and can help you with your purchase if needed.
One thing that makes Katom unique is that they are a recycling drop off for their newspaper. They use this recycled newspaper in their packing, instead of foam peanuts to ship your products. They also have a separate section of their website devoted to “green” products. These are mostly just their most energy-efficient products, but at least they’re making an effort to promote these products.
Food Service Warehouse
Another great restaurant equipment supplier is FoodServiceWarehouse. FSW also has a huge selection of restaurant equipment, but they also carry catering supplies and equipment. They have a good selection of stylish, and affordably-priced catering display stands.
FSW also has a section of their site dedicated to restaurant education. They have several resources available to help you decide if running a restaurant is something you really want to do, as well as how to run it if you decide to take the plunge. Check this section out if you’re just getting started in the restaurant biz.
Restaurant Depot has locations all over the United States and is one of our suppliers that also has food available for sale. Restaurant Depot locations are actually set up very much like a Sam’s Club, Costco, or BJ’s Wholesale depending on what part of the country you’re in. In addition to this, Restaurant Depot also has a great selection, much like our other suppliers.
I think these are some great sources for your restaurant equipment needs. Do you have any that you’d recommend?
