The Top Three Must-Have Catering Supplies

There are many different ways that people enter the catering business. Some start out as a small operation out of someone’s household kitchen, and some are launched by successful restaurants because of customer demand. Whatever the case, event catering is an exciting and rewarding business for people who enjoy to custom-build quality onsite dining experiences for clients. You have the right kitchen, the right recipes, and the right ideas to make events special and memorable. But do you have the right equipment to deliver your food to the event and serve your guests?

At Don’s Supply, we carry an extensive inventory of catering equipment for sale from America’s leading manufacturers, including Browne Foodservice, Winco, and Hollowick, and we’re ready to help you find the right equipment for your business, whether you’re just getting started, or expanding a successful operation. We offer our catering supplies wholesale to our customers for maximum savings, and we love to help catering businesses grow. Here are some of the supplies that you’ll need to get started:

Table settings

Some venues may provide dishes and cutlery, but most don’t. We offer quality dishes and cutlery at a price that will fit your budget, and you can serve your food with class and distinction. And, if your event is more casual, we also have disposable items available.

Buffet equipment

Buffets are an easy way to serve a large number of guests, and you need to be sure that you have food warmers for each course that you plan on serving, as well as the proper serving utensils, and fuel. You can save money by purchasing equipment instead of renting, but storage may be a concern for a small home-based business.

Beverage equipment

You’ll need to be able to serve both hot and cold beverages to your guests, and the ability to brew coffee and iced tea onsite is convenient for you and your clients. You’ll also need to have glassware pitchers, and a way to store ice.

Catering is a rapidly-growing business that can be very profitable for people with the right mix of talent, drive, and preparation. At Don’s Supply, we’ve been helping caterers grow their businesses for 45 years and counting, and we’re ready to make you our next satisfied customer.
