Efficiency of of Using a Dumbwaiter in a Restaurant

While dumbwaiters may seem like things of the past, they are regaining popularity in the both food service and hospitality industries. They offer convenience, efficiency and labor savings. This includes restaurants, bars, banquet halls, and hotels. They eliminate the need for having kitchens on multiple levels and allows for the delivery of meals in a sanitary environment. The ease of transporting prepared foods as well as soiled dishes and utensils between floors is why restaurant dumbwaiter lifts in Singapore provide many benefits. The range of dumbwaiters goes from 50kg to 300kg.

History

When dumbwaiters first came around in the 1840’s, the technology was very simple. The dumbwaiter was a movable frame that was dropped by a rope, put on a pully and guided by rails. Later, around 1920, electric motors were added. Luckily, they are still around today to be a reliable tool in the service industry.

Efficiency

Going to a restaurant is about great food and enjoying a relaxing atmosphere. However, convenience plays a big part as well. Restaurants need to be efficient, or they will not make it very long. The sooner the food arrives to the table the happier everyone is. Then, when the meals are finished, and the customers leave, tables can be cleared and set up for the next party. This making turning tables much more efficient and can allow those that are in the restaurant business to see immediate dividends.
