How To Choose the Right Linens for Your Restaurant

Choosing restaurant linens can be very challenging. Restaurants should consider a lot of key factors, and more importantly, get help from our industry professionals.

Whoever said opening a restaurant was easy has probably never opened anything more than a restaurant door. The food business has got to be one of the most difficult, demanding and critical industries around. There are just so many things to consider from hiring staff, to choosing a location, writing up a menu, hiring an accountant and don't forget the linens!

So newbie restaurant owners and veterans in the restaurant business, here are some tips for choosing the best linens for your restaurant:
• Material - there are tons of linen materials to choose from. There's always cotton, polyester, polyspun, and all sorts of other synthetic-cotton blends of different percentages. The important thing to remember as far as linen material is concerned is that you get something that suits your needs - don't get expensive cotton just because it's beautiful if it doesn't go with your venue; likewise, don't choose cheaper alternatives like vinyl and hope that it won't make your supposed high-end French bistro look tacky. Know your options!
• Color - like uniforms, linens also represent your company. But while it is very tempting to choose linens in the exact same color as your business' motif, keep your interior decor in mind. Always consult a professional before making the final pick because even a classy white may not be as classy as you think.
• Size - when you are buying the right type of linen and the right color, remember the dimensions of the table that you are using it on! It would be a shame if you invested money into an expensive cotton sheet, but it falls short on one (or more) sides, or the drop isn't long enough. Measure the table(s) and write the dimensions down in order to prevent sheets from falling short.

But more importantly, you have to remember that even the best quality restaurant linens would fall short if not maintained properly. That is why you have to find the right linen service company for the job - a company like ours that has decades of industry experience and knows how to handle different types of material.
