In the foodservice business, there are certain things you just have to spend money on, but are linens one of them? Losing the linens in your buffet business could save you thousands.
The skirts and tablecloths that have traditionally gone with buffets are beaten up on a daily basis. From spaghetti sauce stains to people tripping over the skirts, it can be hard to keep table linens in good shape.
Are the tablecloths really worth the hassle and the rising cost of linen services?
Whether you rent or own linens, the cost of cleaning them, especially professionally, has increased dramatically over the years. According to Restaurant Business Online, the cost of linen service has gone up by about fifteen percent each year.
The rising costs of natural gas, water, and gasoline have caused this increase over the years. An Atlanta restaurant manager quoted spending $2,000 per month, strictly on linens. Some companies have taken to cleaning their linens themselves, but the cost of the proper equipment can cost thousands of dollars.
So, why use table linens at all? In the past, tablecloths have been used to hide ugly tables used by many buffet businesses. What if you had tables that don’t need to be hidden?
