Supply Costs: What to Consider
Posted by Guest Blogger Terri Mayer
Did You Know?
Total Cost of Ownership
When considering cost of ownership, the initial purchase cost is weighed against several operating costs. In many industries it is typically considered to be the period of a product’s serviceable life divided by the cost of the product. In the foodservice industry, the quality of equipment and supplies should also be a consideration when determining your cost of ownership. The quality of your supplies not only impacts the quality of food you are serving to your customers, but also staff efficiency and energy savings.
The cost of ownership story can be retold product by product within the Vollrath line. Consider utensils, which are designed and built with the Jacob’s Pride® Lifetime Warranty, ensuring years of superior use, and Super Pan V®, designed to withstand the wear and tear of commercial kitchens.
