Tips and Updates for Your Commercial Kitchen

We offer one-stop shop for catering supplies and equipment, and all you have to do is provide the food!

In the catering business, supplies are a very important part of any operation. Even if you have the best menu and service in town, you need the equipment to deliver it from the preparation site to the venue, which are often in two different locations. You also need the equipment to keep your food warm for the duration of the service, and prepare for the possibility that the service may not start on time, or go longer than expected. No matter how well-prepared that you are, surprises are far from uncommon, and it’s important to have contingency plans for everything!

Don’s Supply has been Arkansas’ top provider of catering equipment supplies for almost 50 years, and we’re always a phone call or mouse click away when you need quality equipment at value prices. We might not be able to go with you to help out on your catering jobs, but we can definitely outfit you with the tools that you’ll need to take care of all of the event guests. Here are a few “must-haves” for any catering operation:

Chafers and Fuel-You might not always have easy access to electrical outlets, which is why portable chafers are a real asset to any catering operation. We also carry long-burning Hollowick® Fuel, so you’ll always have all of the clean, even, and odorless heat that you’ll need.

Dishes and Flatware-Some venues might provide plates and silverware, but with so much at stake, can you really assume they will be formal enough for your event, or that there will be enough to serve your entire crowd? Of course not! We carry China and flatware by World Tableware® and Syracuse China® in a variety of styles, and you can approach any job with the confidence that your guests will have an appropriately classy and memorable experience.

Disposables and cleaning equipment-For larger events, casual service makes a lot more sense, which is why we carry a wide selection of plastic and styrofoam disposables. And since many event hosts have to pay an additional security deposit on the venue, you’re also going to want to have an ample supply of trash bags and cleaning supplies.
