What to Look for in a Restaurant Equipment Supplier

Industrical Kitchen Supplies

You’ll be working with your restaurant equipment supplier constantly—ordering more products, equipment, and business services that will make your operation run more smoothly. Because of this constant contact, you’ll want a supplier that you can maintain a good relationship with and one who will meet your needs every step of the way. Consider these factors when comparing restaurant suppliers:

Comprehensive Inventory

A good restaurant supplier should supply every non-edible product you’ll need to run your restaurant. Look for an equipment supplier that carries cooking equipment, janitorial equipment, dining room displays, disposables for your pick up orders, washing equipment, and any other products you’ll need on a daily basis. Going through one company for all these things will save you time and money.

Added Services

A great restaurant equipment supplier will not only give you the equipment and products you need, but also offer some other equally valuable services. These include design and consulting services, IT services, menu cover and design, and POS system installation and support. POS is a dominant force in the restaurant service industry, found in most modern restaurants today in one form or another. Look for a restaurant equipment supplier who will install a POS system for you and train your employees on how to use it.

Good Reputation

You restaurant equipment supplier should have testimonials that reflect its business practices. Consider customer reviews regarding timeliness in delivery and customer service. Every restaurant is different, so look for a supplier that focuses on tailoring their service to meet the needs of specific customers and businesses.


Keeping your finances in the black is vital to a restaurant’s success. Consider a supplier that keeps your budget in mind when making product and equipment recommendations for you.
