Choosing a Food Service Cart Guide
If you are running a restaurant, hotel, or school cafeteria, you know the importance of having the right utility cart for the job. Whether you are transporting full bus tubs back to the kitchen or delivering meals for room service, a transport cart with the right weight capacity, caster type, and handle design can make your job infinitely easier. This guide is designed to help you narrow down the search for the best food service cart for your application by outlining factors like plastic versus metal construction, wheel types, ergonomic handle designs, and actual weight capacity.
Safely Transport Bulky or Heavy Items with a Commercial Hand Truck
A commercial hand truck is a necessity for your warehouse, restaurant, hotel, catering business, or grocery store. These trucks and dollies make it easier for employees to transport large or heavy products from one location to the next. By having a restaurant dolly available for your staff members, you’ll greatly reduce the risk of back injury.
Our selection of hand trucks and dollies includes options with different configurations to meet your specific needs. If you’re looking for a restaurant dolly for foodservice applications, check out our flatware, beverageware, and dinnerware carts. These units are designed to safely transport stacks of plates or dishwasher racks. You can also set select models out in your cafeteria or buffet-style dining room to dispense essential dinnerware items to your customers.
If you need a commercial hand truck to accommodate items like lumber, dirty laundry, and beer kegs, we also have you covered.

You can even find dollies that are compatible with trash cans and recycling bins to make it easier to take loaded containers out to the dumpster.
