Having the right food transport cart can help you optimize workflow when moving food around a large service area. Food transport carts are versatile pieces of equipment that come in a variety of different styles and specifications. There are both hot and cold commercial food delivery carts on the market. You can also choose a food transport cart based on various factors including weight capacity, handles, and caster types. All of these factors come together to allow you to create the most simplistic food transportation experience in your restaurant or institution.
Meal delivery carts can deliver anywhere from a few to a few hundred meals at once more easily. Low capacity meal delivery carts hold less than fifty meals, mid-sized ones hold up to a hundred meals, and anything more than that qualifies as a high capacity cart.
Food transport carts are also separated by the materials they are made of. You can purchase carts that are made of stainless steel, aluminum or plastic. The material you choose will determine the quality of the carts, whether they retain heat and moisture, as well as the durability of the unit.
Temperature controlled food transport carts are available for applications that need to keep meals hot or cold. Refrigerated and heated transport carts allow you to maintain the freshness of your food even better. Some electric food transport carts even have programmable controls that ensure a higher level of precision for your food’s temperature. Cambro food transport carts are very well insulated and can retain heat or cold for several hours.
Although each style of food transport carts has clear advantages depending on your goals, no single style succeeds the other. The Kitchen Spot looks forward to connecting you with local restaurant supply store experts who will help you find your next food transport cart.
