Catering Trays

If you own a catering business, a delicatessen, or even a food-service establishment that specializes in banquet dinners, you will want to stock up on catering trays or buffet trays. Catering serving trays are specifically designed to hold an assortment of food items for various events such as business meetings, parties, dinners, luncheons, large outdoor picnics, and other events.

There are also affordable disposable catering trays available that can be readily thrown away after use, thus helping you do away with potentially tedious clean-up and washing.

Needless to say, plastic catering trays are ideal for holding a variety of food items that can be found in catering events such as sandwiches, various kinds of spreads like cheese and meat and even vegetables, fruits, different kinds of desserts, and hors d'oeuvres.

Catering food trays are also available in various styles, colors, shapes, and sizes, depending on what you require for your business and, more importantly, your presentation needs. Lids are also available with most models to facilitate transport and storage. Most catering display trays are also perfect in displaying sumptuous appetizers such as sushi and shrimp and other seafood as well as deviled eggs and Swedish meatballs.

There are also metal catering trays available in the market today that are perfect for use for dinners and other feasts. Metal catering trays are ideal for use in both the indoors and outdoors.

Buffet Serving Trays

Buffet serving trays are one of the most important accessories used in the catering business. Needless to say, catering serving trays are great for food displays as they help accentuate not the displays themselves but also the restaurant’s overall décor and ambiance.

Buffet serving trays are often made of various materials, which include stainless steel for the more casual events and porcelain, silver, and wood for the more upscale and stylish events.

There are also catering serving trays made of plastic, the most common of which is melamine, that is considered some of the most durable, heavy-duty, and shatter-proof catering serving trays used nowadays. Other plastic serving trays include plastics that mimic stone or crystal. At the opposite end, when durability is concerned, are buffet serving trays that are made of ceramic. They are one of the most fragile types of catering serving trays, but they make up for this perceived fragility by being some of the most elegant types of serving trays today.

Looking for That Perfect Cold Crock Pot, Serving Bowls, or Food Pans?

A hot or cold food pan, a cold crock pot, or a serving bowl should be a mainstay in your catering business. Any of these can be used—apart from tabletop displays—to display hot or cold foods in an elegant and stylish fashion.

These containers can effectively hold both hot and cold liquids (like hot soups, broths, and stews for instance, and cold punch and juices). Choose from different materials, the most common of which include metal, ceramic glass, and more. Different shapes and styles range from the more fancy looking to the more casual, and all are guaranteed to add a unique aesthetic, not to mention an added element of fun to your buffet and catering displays.
