The best option for anybody, whether it is a restaurant or office break room, is to use as many reusable dining supplies as you can. Reusable items may cost more initially and require chemicals to keep them clean, but in the long run, they will actually cost less than having to constantly replace disposables.
Cups, plates and silverware, those are the essential break room dining supplies. Even though your break room is not a trendy or upscale restaurant, that doesn’t mean you can’t have some wacky or fancy dining supplies. In fact, since these items are all commercial grade, they will be more durable than anything you can pick up at the thrift store or receive as donations from employees.
