Whether you are a restaurant owner or perhaps work in a food and catering environment, chances are you haven’t given much thought to table linen. I think it’s even safe to say that for most restaurant diner’s who have a discerning taste for a fine dining experience may well certainly dine without noticing anything on the table other than the food itself. As with many of us, very little thought has perhaps been given to the history of table linen.
Table linens are the lifeblood of a restaurant. Soaking up any spillages, covering the furniture, linen napkins for wiping faces – the list is truly endless. This is the reason why we need to take special care of linen tablecloths, napkins and even tea towels. Follow these top tips and you can keep your kitchen linens in the best possible condition. As we mentioned, table and kitchen linens take a real hammering, what with wine spills, candle wax drips, lipstick marks and food staining.
Let’s be honest; the first thing you think about when walking into a hotel room is the bed and the linen. We’d all be lying if we said we didn’t look forward to sinking into the crisp sheets and thick, soft pillows on a hotel bed after a long day, whether you’ve been attending business meetings or simply exploring. There’s something quite special about staying in a big, luxurious hotel bed - but only if the bedding is right. Thin, scratchy sheets are the difference between a restful night or an uncomfortable sleep.
Whether you’re in the planning process of opening a restaurant or you’re going through a renovation, getting the decor right in your restaurant can make a world of difference to your success. Of course, the quality of the food and service must always take precedence. However, having an alluring design and paying close attention to the details will ensure people come back and tell their friends. To give you a helping hand, we’ve listed some great decor ideas for your restaurant.
As a restauranteur, the single most important thing to your business is getting enough custom through the door. Having excellent quality food should always be your first strategy, but it’s just as important to have a coherent and effective marketing plan too. Building a website, designing a beautiful logo and being active on social media are great places to start. However, if you would like to explore some more innovative marketing strategies, we’ve listed some ideas to get you started.
