Take Out Containers

Take Out Containers

We have an incredible variety of takeout containers on our site. But which containers should you choose for your establishment? In this video, I’ll go over some of the features you should look for and some of the considerations that should factor into your choice of takeout containers. Probably the most important and obvious consideration is what kind of food you serve. Of course, the size of your food is going to be important. Using the smallest container that works is your best bet to save money. It’s a good idea to have multiple sizes on hand for that reason. As far as style, a sandwich shop might do well with an inexpensive and insulating foam container, but a fine dining restaurant will want to choose a container that presents there food in the best possible light and allows the customer to warm the food properly. Some foods, like salads, look great in clear containers. If you are serving food that you want to keep crisper, make sure you choose a container with vents, to release condensation. If you serve liquid foods, a good seal is more important. All containers insulate food to an extent, but nothing beats Styrofoam for insulation. However, anything other than mild re-heating will melt Styrofoam in the microwave. If you want your customers to be able to microwave the food, we have many choices, including some environmentally friendly options and we also have microwaveable plastics that your customers will love, because they can be reused several times. We also sell that pizza shop favorite, foil takeout containers, which are great for putting your ziti or other foods in an oven. Cost is often the overriding factor, but don’t let it be the only one. Nothing is less expensive than Styrofoam, but keep in mind that you shouldn’t use it if your customers are looking to your restaurant for a fine dining on environmentally friendly dining experience. Whatever your choice, make sure you are using the smallest container that works. Are your snack bar customers taking the meal 10 feet to a picnic table? Foam is probably your most cost-effective option. Are you trying to promote curbside pick-up at your casual restaurant? Then consider sturdy, vented, microwavable clamshell containers to really help you promote the service be getting your food home in almost dine-in condition. If you are doing grab and go, you’ll definitely want containers that offer high visibility. And of course, the old doggie bag application will vary depending on the style of restaurant you run. Finally, there are environmental factors. Some of you will have customers that are very sensitive to environmental issues, you’ll want to cater to them by choosing some of our compostable or degradable containers. Thank you for watching.

Customer questions about this product

What do the 6" x 6" x 2" measurements refer to?
The 6" x 6" measurements refer to length and width, and the product has a total of 2" of height space when closed.
Will these containers work for any type of take out food?
These Green Wave compostable take out containers can handle hot or cold food. Based on feedback we've received from our customers, as well as our own personal experience with the containers, they do not work quite as well with saucy, greasy foods like wings, fried chicken, or Chinese food. If you'd like to offer those types of items, we would recommend lining the bottom of the container with waxed paper, or one of these environmentally friendly EcoCraft deli wrap products!

The Green Wave TW-BOO-004 biodegradable 6" x 6" x 3" take out container is an environmentally friendly way to serve food. All Green Wave products are 100 percent green and are an excellent substitute for non-environmentally friendly products, such as foam and plastic!

Each 6" x 6" x 3" take out container is made out of all-natural, annually-renewable resources like sugarcane, grass, and reed plasma. These materials break down quickly in landfills, and allow Green Wave to remain competitive without exploiting the natural environment or disturbing Earth's delicate ecosystem.

This durable 6" x 6" x 3" container is also microwavable and can withstand high temperatures, making it easy to reheat food. Green Wave dinnerware has a similar feel and texture to molded fiber Chinet dinnerware.

The TW-BOO-004 biodegradable 6" x 6" x 3" take out container is sold by the case. Each case contains 400 containers.

    Worked perfectly for my customers meals. Sturdy and keeps foods warm. Can pack light to heavy weight foods in these containers. Will order consistently fro my customers.

    from Le Spicy Mango Posted on

    These have a very nice look! And offer a very reasonable price between plastic and styrofoam. In my college town I certainly have a lot of customers that take notice of sustainability practices!

    used it for our ice cream take out, and it was the best. it locked up very well and very sturdy, too hold what we needed.

    from moosup fire dept. Posted on

    I am a big fan of these great compostable containers. I use them every day for salads and they hold up to the dressing very well. They can be used for hot foods with a liner as well.

    from The Lunch Lady Posted on

    Although these to- go boxes are a bit more expensive than your usual to-go foam boxes, I will always prefer these! They are eco-friendly which we love and are incredibly durable and nice looking!

    from Rubix Cube LLC Posted on

    Nice to have a eco friendly to-go product that is not too expensive. The only complaint is the latch on the box is not as sturdy as a styrofoam container.

    These are just the right size for sandwiches made using home baked bread. Great size and holds up to hot foods. No melted styrofoam with these.

    This box works really well for us. It's green, it holds up well shape wise. Good value for money. Our customers like it. Fits our pies and pasties perfectly.

    from Pure Pasty Co Posted on

    A good, ecofriendly solution ofr packaging to go. This is not good for wet items or you must use a coated paper liner which offsets some of the benefits, but if you have dry goods to pack, its great!

    Great to-go containers that are very affordable. They are a great choice for our customers and the environrment! Certainly a great bargain, beating many non-enviornment friendly items.

    from Shaharazade's Restaurant & Tea Room Posted on

    Great for baked ziti... I freeze my baked ziti and warm it up in these microwaveable containers. Sprinkle a little water on top of the baked ziti and its as fresh and fresh can get!
