Occasionally, we will temporarily run out of stock of an item due to high demand. If this is ever the case for an item you ordered, we will send you an out-of-stock e-mail within 24 business hours. If you have a time-constraint on your order, please respond to the e-mail and our Order Support team will work on a solution for you! You can also feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Specialist to check stock on the items you’re purchasing before your order is placed to ensure availability.
Please contact us immediately if you would like to cancel an order! If an order is already processing in our warehouse and being packed to ship, we cannot guarantee that the order can be canceled.
In order to maintain accuracy and efficiency in our order process, we are unable to modify any orders after they have been placed. If you would like to add to or modify your order in any way, please contact a Customer Solutions Specialist to see if the order can be canceled and then reordered with your desired modifications.
Our warehouse works on the weekends to package orders so they are ready for shipment on Monday morning. Although we do not ship on the weekends, if an order is packaged to ship over a weekend and billed out, the order is not able to be canceled.
If we cannot cancel an order that you no longer want or want to modify, please see our Returns Policy.
Please contact us immediately if you would like to ship your order to a different address than you indicated at checkout. Once an order ships, there are fees associated with changing the shipping address that would need to be collected before the change can take effect. The cost of changing the shipping address will depend on the shipping method and number of shipments. If an order has already left our warehouse before the shipping address change is made, we cannot guarantee that it will arrive at the new location. If a carrier tries to deliver a shipment several times and is unsuccessful, your order will be returned to us and treated as a standard return.
To ensure our customers’ safety online, all orders go through security checks before we start processing them. Please keep this in mind while ordering, as there may be a slight delay before processing for a small percentage of orders. If additional information is needed to help ensure the order’s validity, we will reach out via email.
All items on our website have real-time, wholesale pricing, which is subject to change. Product pages will list impending manufacturers' price increases, where applicable. For pending alternate payment / leasing orders, we reserve the right to enforce these price increases on orders not paid in full by the specified deadline. In order to ensure that you receive the most accurate pricing on your order, please pay in full prior to the effective date of the increase. If purchasing using one of our accepted forms of alternate payment, please allow additional business days for payment to be submitted and cleared.
In order to provide our customers with the most up to date information regarding products and orders, our primary form of communication is via email. All order updates will be sent to the email address used when the order was placed. For this reason, please be sure to use a valid email address when placing your order. If you have questions that need to be directed to our Customer Solutions team, you are welcome to contact us via email, chat or phone.
All prices are subject to change without notice. In the rare event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a website error, WebstaurantStore will resolve the discrepancy, at our discretion, on all orders placed for the product listed at the incorrect price. This resolution may involve coming to an agreed upon price with the customer or a cancellation of the order, resulting in a full refund.
Registered customers can sign-up for 'Shipment Updates via Text' in their account settings to receive an SMS text message when packages are out for delivery, delivered or encounter a problem. Text messages will be sent for all packages shipped after you complete the sign up process. This service may not be available and/or may not include tracking for packages that are shipped directly from one of our manufacturers.
Text messages may also be sent when there is an urgent need for information to continue to process your order. These situations could include (but are not limited to):
• Payment processing errors
• Expedited order delays
• Confirmation of order details
• Delivery requirements
Text frequency based on user orders. Message and data rates may apply. Customers may opt-out at any time by sending STOP to (717)288-7303 or unsubscribing in their account settings. (Note: if you texted STOP but would like to restart, text START, and make sure your number below is correct.) Responses are unable to be received via text.
Our participating carriers include (but are not limited to): AT&T, SprintPCS, Metro PCS, T-Mobile®, U.S. Cellular®, Verizon Wireless.
We ask that all orders be placed online via credit card payment. From the shopping cart, you have the option to check out using our secure server or PayPal. We accept all major credit cards including MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.
Prepaid Credit Cards
Most prepaid credit cards are accepted. Please note that credit card companies have differing policies for how long authorizations are held. Please contact your credit card company with any questions.
Charges are only billed to your credit card once your items ship from our warehouse. You will be charged for the total order at the time of the first shipment, even if your items will be shipped at several different times. When you place an order on our site, an authorization is placed on your funds in the amount of your order. An authorization is a communication from your bank to our payment system letting us know your card is valid and the required funds are available. On your bank statement these authorizations may show as “pending,” but please keep in mind they are not charges. They are only authorization requests and will only result in a charge when your items ship.
Please note that credit and debit card providers differ in how long authorizations are held. If the original authorization expires before the funds are captured, your card will automatically re-authorize upon shipment. Depending on your provider, re-authorizations and/or pending transactions will result in a hold on the funds in your account. Although these funds have not been captured, this hold can result in overdraft fees. WebstaurantStore is not responsible for any fees occurring from this type of situation.
We accept check payments for orders totaling over $500. Please note: once we receive the check there will be a five business day waiting period prior to processing your order as your check clears. To expedite the waiting period, you may send a certified check for payment. We can begin processing your order as soon as a certified check is received. If you are interested in paying by check, all you need to do is continue through the checkout process and click on "Alternate Payment" located in the "Credit Card Information" box on the Review Order page during checkout. This will provide you with our account information to transfer the funds for the order and also get the order placed. You can contact us after the order is placed if you'd like to mail a payment or complete a wire transfer. Please note, the order will be on hold until funds are received.
All of our pricing is listed in US dollars ($). When ordering outside of the United States, the funds are converted to the local currency of the ordering country on your credit card statement. Since we only charge items as they are shipped, the rate of exchange is locked in at the time your order is shipped, and not when the order is placed. Additionally, credit card companies may charge a currency conversion fee. Please contact your bank for further details.
For your convenience, we now offer leasing on qualifying orders. TimePayment, a third party equipment leasing company, handles leasing if you meet all three of the following requirements:
Rates will vary from customer to customer. A few factors that will affect your lease are:
We recommend having the following documents ready to fill out your application:
As an added level of security for our customers, we accept PayPal payments. A major credit card is still required to complete the transaction as we do not accept gift cards, store cards, or account credits from either of these services. To pay for your order using one of these services, login to your PayPal account during checkout and then select the major credit card registered with your account.
Because of our business model, we are unable to accept Purchase Orders. All orders must be placed online and paid for in full at the time of purchase. Our preferred method of payment is via credit card through our secure server. If your order is over $500, you may also pay by check or wire transfer.

Compatible Models are listed as applicable and kept as accurate and up-to-date as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Specialist before placing your order.
Equivalent Items Equivalent items and any associated illustrations or descriptions are presented for your reference. These are items which, based on available manufacturer information, are suitable replacements for the stated original item. These equivalent items are not necessarily authorized, sponsored, or endorsed by the manufacturer of the stated item, or by the manufacturers of equipment compatible with the stated item; any OEM names mentioned are registered trademarks.
On our site, some of our lowest priced items are listed as generic. In other words, we do not have a specific vendor name associated with the product. The product is sourced from a variety of vendors according to price and availability so we may both quickly and fairly accommodate your needs. We do our best in updating our site with any changes in the products and there may be instances where there is a slight variance in the look and feel of the product due to a change in vendors. However, the intended application of the product will remain the same. If you find that this is not the case, please contact our Customer Solutions team immediately and we will look into the issue for you!
We strive to provide the most accurate images of our products as possible. However, despite our best efforts, some product images prove difficult or impossible to obtain. In these cases, we will use the closest representative image we can find for the product. These representative, illustrative images may show optional accessories or features, or may be an image of a similar product.
Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read the product description and other related product literature such as Specification Sheets, MSDS Sheets, etc., before placing your order. If you have any questions or concerns about a product even after reading the description and product literature, please contact us.
Image Color Policy
Our Images Department makes every effort to portray the color of an item as accurately as possible on our site. However, depending on your monitor settings, the color of an item may appear different than in person. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the color displayed on your monitor.
Certain types of products, such as textiles and fabrics, are subject to dye lot variations inherent to their manufacturing process. If you are trying to match an existing product in your possession, please contact us and we will accommodate your request to the best of our ability.
Because we are a bulk distributor for food service supplies, we make sure to advertise our lowest prices on our website, including discounts we receive from our vendors that are passed onto our customers. On occasion we will provide sales and coupon codes to receive further discounts off the original price of the item. To ensure the discount is received for sales, items should be purchased as soon as possible. Coupon codes for items on our site will have an expiration date associated with them. Coupons and discounts will only be honored on orders that are placed while the coupon/discount is valid. Discounts do not apply to already discounted products and cannot be used in conjunction with other offers.
Pricing that is advertised on sources outside of our website may reflect incorrect prices compared to what we currently offer. The prices on our website are regularly updated to ensure accurate, real-time pricing; however, search engines and coupon code websites may not always provide the most up-to-date prices. Please visit our website to view the current pricing of our items. Prices and coupon codes that are not valid will not be honored at checkout.
If a warranty is available for an item, the details of the warranty can be found as a downloadable PDF labeled 'Warranty' on the item’s page. All warranties are handled based on the manufacturer’s warranty policy. If problems arise with an item that is covered under warranty, the warranty process will be handled directly through the manufacturer or vendor of the item. Should a customer need help contacting a manufacturer or vendor about a warranty issue, our Customer Solutions team will be happy to assist. For items being used internationally, please confirm if the warranty is valid in your area.
"You May Also Need" items are products that are guaranteed to work with the item you are viewing, such as lids that will fit a cup or casters that will fit a piece of equipment. If an item is not listed in the "You May Also Need" section on a particular product page, then we do not guarantee that it will work with the product you are viewing and do not recommend that you purchase them for use together. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Specialist before placing your order.
A restocking fee will be deducted from your return credit to cover the cost of processing the items back into stock. This fee is 20% of the item(s) cost for commercial locations and 30% for residential locations.
All regularly stocked items, with the exception of consumable products, can be returned within 30 days of receipt, so long as they are unused and in the original packaging. A return credit will be issued to the original payment method upon receipt and inspection of the product(s). Shipping charges paid at the time of checkout will not be credited along with the return. An applicable restocking fee will be deducted from the amount due. Customers are responsible for the cost of return shipping. This includes any brokerage fees, duties, and taxes for international returns.
Return requests for Special Order products and products shipped direct from the manufacturer must be issued by our Customer Solutions Specialists. Not all Special Order items can be returned. Click here to learn how to create a return.
Select this FREE option for your common carrier order on the final review and payment page of checkout. By requesting a "Call Before Delivery," the carrier will contact you approximately 24 hours before the estimated arrival of your order, to schedule a delivery appointment. A 4-hour window of time is typically provided, however this may vary by carrier and shipping destination. Selecting this option may add an additional day to your order's transit time. A "Call Before Delivery" is required for residential deliveries and recommended for businesses with irregular hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., EST).
The phone number associated with your shipping address, provided during checkout, will be used by the carrier to schedule the delivery appointment. Please note that the "Call Before Delivery" appointment will only apply to the items on your order that are shipping by common carrier. It is not available for any shipments that ship via ground.
If a delivery appointment is missed by the carrier, they will reschedule a new appointment. If you are unavailable to accept your delivery during a scheduled appointment, you will be responsible for any redelivery fees owed to the carrier, so please choose a time that best fits your schedule. Additional fees will apply if you require a time-specific delivery in which the typical 4-hour window needs to be shortened.
Orders shipped via DHL into Canada may incur additional duties, taxes, and other fees to cross the border. These charges will be billed to you directly from DHL. The charge shown on our site’s shipping calculator will not show these fees.
Orders shipped via common carrier require a broker to facilitate the import of your items into Canada. We will contact you before processing the order to inquire which brokerage company you are using if this information has not yet been provided. If you have already determined a broker for your shipment, please note this in the customer comments section of your order!
Keep in mind that we do our best to ship orders to Canada in one shipment but it is not always possible due to stock levels in our warehouses. On the occasion that we cannot ship in one, complete shipment you will be responsible for the extra brokerage fees that your broker may charge.
If any item or packaging is damaged or missing, or if you have any doubt about possible damage, you MUST do the following:
Great care is taken when packing your order, but on rare occasions damage may occur or an item may have been missed. Upon receiving your order, please inspect it for any damages or missing items. If any part of your order is missing or damaged, please keep the items and packaging, and contact us within 5 business days of receiving your order so we can find a solution for you! Pictures of damage may be requested to help with the process.
We’re dedicated to getting your order to you as fast as possible, so our warehouse strives to have orders processed and ready to ship within 1-2 business days (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., EST). Most products ship from one of our warehouses across the U.S. However, some items will be shipped directly from the manufacturer, in which case the delivery times may vary. Common carrier deliveries range from 1 to 10 days for delivery, depending on your proximity to the shipping origin. Ground shipping can take anywhere from one to seven days. All delivery times are estimates.
For additional shipping charges, Second Day guarantees delivery of your order by the end of the second business day from when the order was picked up from our warehouse. Next Day guarantees delivery of your order by the end of the next business day after your order was picked up from our warehouse. Expedited shipping is not an option for common carrier shipments.
Second Day & Next Day orders received after 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time will be processed on the following business day.
We also ship to U.S. based freight forwarders for larger orders; however, you would be responsible for contacting them to set up an account before placing an order. Please note freight forwarders will charge additional fees for their services. Any duties, taxes, or fees from your forwarder are separate from our shipping and handling charges. We are unable to accept and load customer containers directly from our warehouse locations. Unfortunately we are unable to ship to PO, APO/FPO boxes or Viabox at this time. If a shipping carrier deems your address inaccessible for delivery, they will make final delivery at the closest shipping terminal or return the shipment to us. If you are concerned about delivery to your address, please contact us before placing your order!
In addition to the United States and Canada, we can ship most items via DHL Express to the following countries:
To be sure everything goes smoothly when it comes to installing your new equipment, please consult our handy equipment installation checklist at the following link prior to finalizing your order: Equipment Installation Checklist
Great care is taken when packing your order, but on rare occasions errors may occur. If there is an error with any part of your shipment, please contact us within 5 business days of receiving your order so we can find a solution for you!
While we put our best effort into making sure your items arrive on time, there are rare occasions where our carriers will lose a shipment. In these situations, it’s our highest priority to find your items and will work with the carrier to do so. For ground shipments, a trace will be started with the carrier that is delivering your shipment. If there is no movement on the tracking, the terminals that your package went through will be checked. If your shipment is delivered but you do not have the package, the driver that delivered the package will be asked to confirm where it was delivered to.
For common carrier shipments that are lost in transit, our Traffic team will begin a dock check with the carrier company, and the terminals that the shipment was moved through will be checked for the lost product.
Traces with FedEx and dock checks with the carrier will take approximately 3-5 business days to complete. We make it our priority to keep you updated as to the status of the trace or dock check while it is completed. If your shipment is found, we will continue the delivery to your location. If it is deemed lost, we will work with you to provide a satisfactory resolution.
WebstaurantStore ships the majority of its products via FedEx or another parcel carrier. However, for certain large and heavy items, a common carrier freight service is used. Common carrier items are noted in your shopping cart with an asterisk.
Shipping charges for common carrier and small package items are calculated by factoring in the weight, dimensions, and shipping distance.
WebstaurantStore strives to offer you the best price that we can. Some online retailers may offer "free" shipping but upon closer scrutiny, most customers find that our price is still one of the best out there even when shipping charges are added in! Some of our items do ship for free, and are denoted as such on our site. In this case, we're simply passing along savings from the manufacturer to you!
The vast majority of our products can be shipped with a parcel carrier to a residential address. Bear in mind that these carriers charge more to ship to a residential address versus a commercial address. This difference is usually several dollars, but varies by region, and will be reflected in your shipping charges.
If you plan to ship to a UPS Store location, please be aware that not all locations will accept packages shipped by FedEx or another carrier.
While WebstaurantStore is designed specifically for those in the commercial food service industry, we will ship most items to residential customers. As a residential customer, please consider the following information when placing your order:
It is important to keep in mind that many of these items may not meet your consumer-level expectations if used in your home. Commercial cooking equipment:
The right is reserved to deny shipment for residential usage; if this occurs, you will be notified as soon as possible.
If you have any question about the suitability of a particular piece of equipment you're considering for non-commercial use, please contact our Customer Solutions Department.

This difference is usually several dollars but varies by region, and will be reflected in your shipping charges.
Packaging that is used during shipment is designed to keep the contents of your order safe from damage or mishandling of products. On occasion a shipment will be received with damage to the packaging. Because the packaging is designed to protect the products that we ship, compensation will not be offered for packaging damage. If the actual items in your shipment are damaged, please contact us right away so we can arrange for compensation or replacement. Occasionally we will ship items in recycled boxes which may contain descriptions unrelated to the products inside in an effort to be more eco-friendly. This practice also allows us to cut costs on packaging which then is reflected into lower prices on our items. Be sure to inspect the actual items inside of the packaging before refusing a shipment due to incorrect information on the boxes.
In order to maximize the products we’re able to offer to you, some items on our website are not normally stocked in our warehouses. These items may be shipped directly to you from the manufacturer, or brought into our warehouse with our next stock order from the manufacturer and then shipped to you.
Please note - we are not always able to cancel special order items once the order is placed and may not be returnable.
While we do try to consolidate shipments as much as possible, we cannot guarantee every item will ship together due to where items are sourced from. If multiple shipments of your order are required, the full amount of the shipping costs will be charged in the first shipment. If you want part of your order sent expedited and the other part sent using standard Ground, please place two separate orders.
All orders placed through WebstaurantStore will be shipped to their destination via a commercial carrier. For safety, insurance, and logistical reasons, customers cannot pick-up orders from our warehouse.
Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more! The White Glove agent will call to schedule a delivery appointment within a 4 hour time frame, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises. Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. Onsite time will begin when the agents arrive onsite.
While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories.
If you are purchasing equipment, please be sure to carefully check the dimensions of your space and any doors the item may go through prior to placing your order. We do list all dimensions on the items page or in the specification sheet for our customer’s reference. If you are unsure if an item will fit into your location, please contact one of our customer solutions specialists for assistance. In the event that an item cannot be delivered due to conflicts with the location the order may be subject to a return and any associated costs.
