When looking at their budgets, many restaurants wonder: does linen quality matter? In order to answer this question, the potential downsides of poorly made linens must first be explored.
Low-quality linens are a massive liability to any restaurant that wants to be successful. They are terrible for business and cause each of these important factors to go down.
Bad linens are noticeable even to an untrained eye. Customers will spot stains, rips, and tears no matter the product. The effects of this poor quality also mean that tables will be less clean and food less sanitary. This could lead to customers having a bad experience and not wanting to return. It could even go as far as forming a bad reputation and even potential first-time customers opting out of trying your restaurant.
Chefs and cooks work in hot, crowded environments with sharp objects. Hosts/hostesses need to maintain a professional look to do their jobs. Waiters/waitresses must clean stubborn messes and provide food quickly or they get an earful from everyone. If none of these positions have the linens they need for protection and to do their job, then their work suffers.
Providing staff with cheap, poorly-designed linens tells them their employers don’t care about them. If their employers don’t care and their work already suffers, then many won’t put in the effort and productivity goes down.
Spending less on cheaply-made linens will inevitably lead to restaurants losing money in the long run. The low-quality material used in these products will fall apart quickly and cost more money to repair or replace. Including the loss of customers and lower employee productivity, this cost could very easily put your profit margins in the red.
