Par level is how much you want on hand. Lets says you want 3 cases of brisket on hand. 3 Cases would be your par level. So when you are taking your order, you would mark down that you have 1 case on hand. Does that make sense? Some food venders will help you set up your par levels, and they will just go into you kitchen, and make your order based off of the par levels you have set. I highly recommend against this.

B-Side BBQ out here does the sheet pan and liner thing as well. I forgot about that, but, I love it for BBQ. Much better feel than a basket or plate for a BBQ place.

That is a 1/4 steel sheet pan, any baking supply store should be able to supply them in bulk, and for around $4 to $6 each. Not all that cheap, but, they do not break, rarely bend, survive the sanitizer easily and look better with age.

Just curious; how many of those can you expect to be stolen by customers, on average? Is it a significant problem, restaurant owners? They do look nice, for sure!

One down side to Aluminum / Steel sheet pans. They act as heat sinks and suck the heat right out of your food.

Also there is a restaurant at Lake of the Ozarks that serves all kid meals on a frisbee. Another one serves kids meals like fries, chicken strips, mini corn-dogs in a small plastic bucket w/shovel

something like this, but they were a little more rustic.
I use pie tins at Saddles.

Quinton's on E Grand uses the 1/4 sheet pans for their plates.

I would find a way to keep the pans warm for service. I would think a heat lamp would work.

Baskets, trays and anything else with that crappy paper in it SUCK. I tell every restaurant manager that has it.

A simple white plate is much better- for health reasons, durability and the customer will appreciate it.

As far as breakage, keep the trash out of your store and at Walmart...your plates will last just fine.

Yep and then I get to eat off of a piece of paper that has been in contact with the underside of a tray/basket/etc.

Whenever I see them pre-stacked, I either leave or ask that a new piece of paper be used.

As far as loss goes, it will depend if you are Fast Cas or full service. We are fast casual and do our best to bus tables quickly, but customers like to help by throwing away plates, forks, side dish cup etc.


Amazing.

We use baskets for our kids menu stuff and some appetizers. Plates for everything else.

Have used them 3 years now and never lost a single one.

The paper guards against that.

Really???
A plate that has been stacked by a dishwasher with wet hands is cleaner?
