    If you are opening up a restaurant, bakery, cafe, or even catering business, you will need to seek out equipment and supplies from a wholesale manufacturer. Depending on what is in store for your menu, your kitchen may need anything from an industrial oven for baking to used tables and glassware for a dining room.

    Seek out many different manufacturers that specialize in what type of restaurant or food business you are opening. Many different wholesalers can supply you with various types of equipment, so be sure find a business that offers all the supplies your new restaurant needs. Also, take into account that it may be cheaper to buy all your equipment from one wholesale manufacturer because of bulk discounts.

    Different types of food restaurants and caterers need different types of equipment and supplies. For instance, if your new business is a bar, you will need an ice machine, bar stools, and lots of glassware. If you are a baker, look for a company that can supply your kitchen with quality baking equipment, including everything from multiple industrial ovens to mixing bowls. If you are opening a restaurant or cafe, you will need many cooking supplies from stoves with pots and pans to tables and decorations. If you are a caterer, you will need transportable commercial stoves for cooking, and even a refrigerated truck to transport your food.

    To learn more about what type of supplies your business may need, search online. It is important to be informed about what equipment you will need before going directly to a manufacturer. Also, ask experienced owners to get a better idea of what you are getting into.
