If there’s one thing you can count on to change in foodservice, it’s the menu. The second thing you can count on changing is the dinnerware. Menu items will drive dinnerware selections. Plus industry trends in shapes, materials and colors will also influence dinnerware choices.
The one constant is that no matter the size or shape, these dishes need to be stored properly to avoid expensive breakage, such as chips and dings. A proper fitting dish caddy is the best solution to storing and transporting plates. Dinner plates, salad plates, bread plates, chargers … so many types of plates to store! An adjustable dish caddy that can be configured to fit various sized items in the same caddy is a space-saving and time-saving solution.
Why an Adjustable Dish Caddy?
“The ultimate feature of any kitchen is functionality and multi-use. If you can use the same dish caddy for four different plates, then you’re a winner,” says Ben LaFleche, Executive Chef at The Waterfront Beach Resort, A Hilton Hotel. Other attractive qualities are the durability and ease of maneuverability. A multi-use dish caddy will save the operator time, space and money.

“That’s why I love Cambro dish caddies, the s-series, the one that can morph in a bunch of different patterns. I can have all the different plates I need for one banquet in one caddy!” adds LaFleche.
