Soup cups provide a fast and convenient way for hot foods, deli foods and leftovers to be served and presented to guests as to-go containers. These wide, stout cups are made from the same materials as hot cups but feature a wider brim to facilitate eating directly from the cup itself. Many soup cup sizes and materials are available, so it is important to consider what is important to your establishment. If soup cups will be used often, you may want to consider a more economical plastic or Styrofoam model. However, if environmental concerns are important to your business or your community, a biodegradable model will be the way to go.
When looking into biodegradable models, it is also worth taking into consideration your type of business. If most people will eat at your restaurant, then the soup cups can easily be placed in a compostable container by you or your guests. The cups will make a great impression regardless, but if your guests are taking them home then the soup cups are much less likely to be properly disposed of.
