As a leader in the hospitality space, Morgan Services understands the needs of our customers when it comes to inventory management. Making sure you have the correct amount of table linens at your disposal on a given day is critical to the success of your business. Too much and you’re running out of storage space. Too little and your banquet service falters. That’s why we take pride in our inventory management solutions – ensuring your linens are tracked efficiently so you always have plenty of product on hand until your next delivery.

Assured Stock Availability Program

As part of our inventory management solutions, Morgan Services has made a commitment to a program we call “Assured Stock Availability” (ASA) – sometimes referred to as “safety stock.” Safety stock is an additional stock of linens that is used as a buffer to make sure you’ll never run out at an inopportune time. By making sure you always have a little bit more inventory on hand than you usually need in a week, you’re prepared for anything – a surprise event, severe weather or even natural disasters that might delay the next inventory delivery.

New Handheld Device

In addition to our Assured Stock Availability program, Morgan Services is making other changes to ensure we are on top of inventory supplies. Starting this summer, our service reps will come to each linen delivery appointment equipped with a handheld device that is linked to our customers’ account. In the event that the customer wants to make adjustments to their delivery for the following week, these changes will be logged on the spot and made in real-time. Gone are the days of clumsy paper forms that are hard to track and have the potential to be lost or damaged. These new devices allow our team to make changes on the fly, making sure your requests are properly logged and take effect right away.

Seasonal Inventory Changes

This new tool can be extremely useful as we move into the summertime, when private events or banquets may be held in hospitality spaces that require more inventory that usual. These seasonal changes to inventory needs will be easier than ever for the Morgan team to track and provide to our customers – giving them the flexibility necessary as seasons change.

Cost-Conscious Inventory

By maintaining a close eye on your inventory, with the help of Morgan Services inventory management solutions, you can work to make your table linens as cost-efficient as possible. Between our Assured Stock Availability program and our ability to make real-time changes to delivery instructions, we work with our customers to ensure total inventory management that is cost-conscious every step of the way.

Picture this: you’re headed out to a restaurant for dinner on Friday night. You’re with a group of friends and you’re celebrating a birthday or maybe an anniversary. You’ve had your eye on the new restaurant that just opened in your neighborhood - you’ve heard the food is delicious and the service is great. After making a reservation, you show up on Friday night and see that it has… paper tablecloths.

No big deal, right?

But suddenly the evening feels less special. You had your heart set on a nice dinner and great service, and now it’s feeling a little lackluster.

You’re not alone. A recent survey states that U.S. consumers associate cloth table settings with:

  • 88% better service
  • 75% better food quality
  • 82% better appearance and ambiance
  • 84% environmentally friendly practices

Paper alternatives just don’t have the same pizzazz.

Benefits of Linen Table Settings

Consumers’ preference toward linen tablecloths isn’t that surprising. They have a ton of additional benefits:

1. They elevate the restaurant’s décor.

It seems like a small thing, but linen tablecloths can bring a new ambiance to a restaurant. They make a restaurant seem elegant, and as such, patrons are oftentimes willing to spend slightly more money on their entrees. The allure of a white tablecloth meal is a real thing.

2. They help trap spills.

It doesn’t matter how upscale a restaurant is – spills can happen anywhere. And when they do, it’s important to contain them as quickly as possible so as not to cause more mess or ruin a diner’s clothing. Linen tablecloths can soak up spilled drinks so that they are confined and don’t run off the table onto the floor or a patron’s lap.  

3. They help the environment.

Did you know that, on average, restaurant patrons use 3 paper napkins per meal? Investing in reusable linen tablecloths and napkins helps to reduce the amount of paper products that end up in landfills. And, they can be easily laundered and restocked so you always have a fresh supply.

4. They help absorb sound.

Have you ever been out to eat at a restaurant that is so loud you can’t enjoy a conversation with the people at your table? Linen tablecloths can help absorb noise in a restaurant, bringing the overall volume down and making it easier for patrons to enjoy their meals.

Make a Change

If you’re a restaurant owner, consider making the change from paper or vinyl tablecloths to linen. It’s a simple change, and it can make a big difference in the dining experience you offer.

Chef coats have long been worn in commercial kitchens. Often made with double-thick material, a chef coat helps to protect chefs and line cooks from common dangers, like hot grease and steam. In high-end restaurants and those with open kitchens, the chef coat also helps to elevate the professional appearance of the kitchen staff.

But let’s face it – though necessary, chef coats make you hot.

According to OSHA, kitchen temperatures can get up to 110 degrees when chefs and line cooks are working in front of hot grills – any time of the year.  Cooks often find themselves taking frequent trips to the walk-in refrigerator for temporary relief from the heat.

So how do you maintain the professional appearance and safety benefits of a chef coat and keep cool? Morgan has the answer: mesh.

Mesh chef coats from Regent are designed for comfort without sacrificing the advantages of a traditional chef coat.
