When choosing a restaurant supply store, do you go with a single vendor to get all of your items, or do you take the time to pick and choose which one is right for you for the particular item that you need? The first, you might not get the best pricing for specific goods, and the second adds hours to your sourcing efforts.
Every restaurant supply store, whether online or brick and mortar, has its strengths and weaknesses. They’re much like the local grocery stores that you might have in your area – one might be fantastic with the meat deals, another might be very good with produce, and still another might have those hard to find items available. Restaurant supply stores work in the same way.
In this situation, you want to go with the one that has the strengths that cater to your needs. If you’re consistently making lots of salads, you might want to find a restaurant supplier who has more emphasis on the True Worktop refrigerators or one who has the best produce. The name of the game is to get the restaurant supplier to play to your strengths.
We’ve found that online restaurant stores offer several advantages over the offline ones. We’ve written about them over here, but it truly comes down to your commitment on price and ingredients.
