Servers need trays to carry food to the table, and those service trays can be stylish as well as functional. Bars, diners and casual full-service restaurants should consider plastic trays with rubber or anti-skid matting. For finer establishments and hotels, decorative metal trays are a good option.
Service trays are especially designed to be lightweight and easy to carry. While some of the metal trays will inevitably be heavier than their plastic counterparts, skilled servers should be able to pull it off. Lightweight trays and trays with handles are available to make it easier.
Hotels should stock up on decorative metal trays with handles for serving tea, coffee, breakfast or room service to their guests. To add a little luxury, look for trays with engraving or silver-plating. This will catch any guest’s eye and assure them that they are being appreciated and getting the service they deserve.
