Is It Time to Buy New Restaurant Dining Sets?

Nothing is forever, and this holds true in the food and beverage industry as much as anywhere else. While items like café chairs and commercial restaurant equipment are long-term investments, they too will eventually need to be replaced. At what point, though, is it time to make the leap and throw out the old bathwater? Here are just a few signs that it may be time to purchase new restaurant dining sets.

Dining Chairs Are Sagging
When restaurant dining sets are starting to fall apart, it won’t be immediately noticeable to the naked eye. If someone sits in the seats and the cushions sag down, however, it’s a sure sign that a replacement is needed.

Of course, it may be unnecessary to replace an entire set if it’s just the one seat cushion that’s sagging. If a restaurateur bought additional seats in the first place, this is an easy problem to remedy. If several chair cushions in different dining sets are starting to go, though, it’s likely that all of them will need replacing soon enough.

Dining Table Repair Difficulties
While some culinary entrepreneurs do think ahead by ordering additional chairs, it’s far rarer for someone to invest in extra restaurant dining tables. This obviously makes sense, due to the fact that solid wood tables are expected to last longer than padded chairs, but eventually, tabletops will become damaged.

For owners who bought top-quality restaurant dining sets, minor damage can be easily repaired. It’s when major problems (e.g., names carved in tabletops) or consistent issues occur that it may be time to consider a new purchase. To protect these vital pieces of restaurant furniture in the future, consider utilizing tablecloths.

Time for a New Atmosphere
When restaurant furniture starts to wear out, it’s time to replace it. If an accident damages a chair, it’s also time to replace it. Of course, neither of these occurrences are necessary for that “time” to come along. In some cases, the restaurateur just wants a new feel to their eatery. Maybe they used the dining sets left over from the last eatery and just don’t like the feel of them anymore. Regardless of the reasoning, a culinary master who wants a different atmosphere for their eatery should make it happen.

Tightening Screws Doesn’t Work
With countless people coming through a dining establishment—oftentimes bringing rowdy kids along for the ride— it’s no wonder that restaurant dining sets see their share of harsh use. For chairs and tables that get wobbly, though, the solution is sometimes as simple as tightening the screws. Eventually, though, this will fail to remedy the situation. There’s only so much abuse these pieces of furniture can take, and when they reach that limit, it’s time for a new investment.

Of the countless expenditures that the owners of dining establishments encounter every year, their restaurant dining sets certainly hold their value better than other necessities. When it comes time to replace them, though, it’s smart to purchase quality items to avoid potential maintenance and replacement too soon in the future.
