Oneida’s Plate Envy

July 20, 2018 | No Comments »

As many foodservice operators know, the experience the guest has in their restaurant is just as important as the food they receive on their plate. And like the presentation of the food, the presentation of the table itself needs to match that experience.

To accomplish this goal, the innovative minds over at Oneida Foodservice have recognized the need for an easy-to-use tool to help operators design the perfect tabletop to match their vision. Introducing Plate Envy!

Instead of flipping through endless pages of tabletop catalogs just to find that perfect piece, Oneida’s new Plate Envy 3D tabletop design tool eliminates the need to ever open another catalog.

So, how does this Plate Envy 3D tabletop work? By answering a series of questions to determine your restaurant’s style, setting, and cuisine, Plate Envy then provides a list of recommendations based on those answers. You are then able to pick and choose your favorite patterns, and Plate Envy will generate a realistic 3D rendering of your selections. The process then concludes with the delivery of a sample order so you can view your selections first-hand in your own space.

Give Oneida’s Plate Envy 3D tabletop a look!

Comparing Residential Blenders vs. Commercial Blenders in Your Restaurant

July 2, 2018 | No Comments »

As a restaurant owner, you are often faced with the cost-versus-benefit decision. When it comes to blenders, why would you choose a commercial blender, when a residential blender is cheaper, and looks almost exactly like a residential blender?

Remember, there are costs associated with:

  • Replacing a blender that can’t keep up with the demands of your kitchen
  • The disappointment of your guest’s satisfaction of consistency in blended products
  • More safety issues and fewer safety features
  • Failing to meet insurance and health code requirements
  • No commercial grade warranty

Choosing a commercial blender saves you more money in the long run, is built to last the demands of commercial use, has safety features to comply with insurance and health code requirements, and designed to use ingredients that you normally wouldn’t use in a residential blender.
