There are several businesses that can benefit from using storage units, particularly if the company is growing but is not ready to move out of their current location. Growth vital, and storage units enable your company to expand in an efficient and organized way.
This is quite common in the restaurant industry. Relocating a restaurant can hurt sales as long-time customers might take time to adjust to the new location. If the new location is out of reach for regulars, it could take even more time for new patrons to replace them. Often, storage is a boon to restaurants that want to serve more customers while keeping their location in tact. Restaurants can become super-busy places once the patrons arrive.
As a restaurant owner or manager, you understand how quickly you can run out of space. Storage can help you optimize the design of your kitchen, office space and delivery area for maximum efficiency.
How Do Restaurants Benefit from Self-Storage?
Restaurants typically have a receiving area where food items are delivered and food gets temporarily housed. Since deliveries often take place daily, the food storage process begins here, so it’s a section of your restaurant that you want to keep very well organized to maximize efficiency.
Since most restaurants purchase supplies in bulk due to the cost savings or to be fully prepared for busy times, there could be a definite limit to how much you can store at your location at any time. If you’re feeling that squeeze, know that you have a good option available by renting storage from a company like CRS Movers.
Renting a storage unit for your restaurant provides needed flexibility. Running your restaurant more smoothly will only serve to increase your patrons’ satisfaction with their experience.
What Kind of Items Can Restaurants Put in Storage?
Restaurateurs rely on a variety of tools daily, while some crucial materials may not be used day to day. Finding a place for these items when they’re not needed helps to remove excess equipment, furniture, and supplies from your location, freeing up space so your restaurant can be run more smoothly. Those kinds of items vary, and can include:
- Tablecloths and place settings.
- Table items like silverware, dishware and napkins
- Outdoor patio furniture
- Excessive dining tables and chairs
- New pots and pans
- Holiday or seasonal decorations
- Notebooks and pens
- New menus
- Excess supplies purchased in bulk
All of these items take up space in your restaurant that makes it harder for workers to maneuver and get around, slowing them down. That’s in addition to the increased foot traffic you may have in your dining area.
Using self-storage, you have the ability to purchase more supplies and stock up on them, but not have to worry about finding space for them at your restaurant if they’re safely in a storage unit. Once business starts to pick up, you can easily access your storage unit and retrieve whatever you need.
Why Self-Storage Is Ideal for Restaurants Serving Wine
Patrons love having a glass of wine with their dinner, and you can expand your wine list without putting additional pressure on your available space by using a storage unit.
The added benefit of using a storage unit is that they’re ideal for proper wine storage, being climate-controlled to keep out the heat, humidity, moisture and cold. Once placed in self-storage, your wine can mature naturally and not be negatively impacted by the elements.
