The restaurant or catering industry is another industry where renting a self storage unit is a great off-site storage opportunity! Most restaurants and catering businesses do not have enough storage in their restaurants or kitchens and they can run out of storage room very quickly. They need to have a place to store their extra furniture, supplies, dishes, glassware and holiday displays. Stop N Stor has a variety of storage units sizes in both climate and non-climate controlled that are great for storing everything for the restaurant or catering industry.
Storage for Catering Businesses
Self storage is a great option for catering businesses, especially for those that work out of their home! Most small businesses do not have the room to store excess inventory, furniture and other needed equipment and a catering business is no exception. The busiest seasons for caterers are the summer months (for weddings) and during the holidays. During the “off-season”, caterers and party planners need a place to store their furniture, chairs, tables, decorations, dishes, glassware, silverware, serving utensils, pots, pans, linens and much more. It is much more convenient to store these items together in a secured self storage unit. Caterers can rent a storage unit that is central to their business and their events to make it easier to pick up the supplies when they are needed.
Storage for Restaurants
Restaurants can store excess equipment, chairs, tables, or supplies including flatware, dishes or cutlery in a self storage unit. A self storage unit is also a great solution to store a restaurant’s outdoor patio furniture during the colder months. When storing patio furniture, stack the chairs whenever possible in order to utilize all the room in the storage unit. A self storage unit is also a great place for restaurants to store excess pots, pans, dishes and appliances. Make sure that the dishes and glassware are wrapped and packed properly to prevent breaking during storage. Restaurants can store holiday decorations in self storage to relieve the clutter in restaurant storerooms. Store the holiday decorations toward the back of the storage unit until you need to use them again in the next year.
For any business, but more so for those who need restaurant storage and catering storage, it is important to keep a running inventory list in the storage unit as well as at your business of the items that you have in storage. This helps you keep track of what you have and what you might need for future engagements. Stop in to Stop N Stor to see how we can help with your restaurant or catering business storage needs.
