Well-considered bussing and clearing best practices can save time, labor, and reduce the number of broken and lost tableware by helping your staff keep organized. It can also improve your customers' dining experience by reducing the noise generated by staff clearing tables and cut down on the number of trips required to properly clean tables. We have dozens of styles and colors of bus boxes to choose from so you can order a variety and keep different wares separated with a color coding system. More
Bus boxes are available without dividers for simple bussing routines, or they can be purchased with multiple compartments to help separate items as they are cleared from the table. The latter practice can make life a little bit easier in the dishroom and avoid lost flatware. To further simplify the process, special flatware bins allow the separation of forks, knives, and spoons so staff can spend less time sorting those items.
A bus tote is useful for more than just clearing tables. These pieces are also commonly used to pre-soak flatware and other wares to help remove tough debris so it comes off after just one trip through the dishwasher. This practice can help your dinnerware come out cleaner and ensure customers you have their best interests in mind. Some bus boxes are even available with lids, so they can be used to stack and store wares when they're not in use, or they can even be used to keep other items in a pinch.
