Matching and Comparing Flatware Patterns Between Brands

Matching and Comparing Flatware Patterns Between Brands

Flatware is a commodity item that nearly every restaurant needs. It is often an afterthought, but it is a critical component to a successful eating establishment. Problems arise, however, in that keeping a complete set of flatware is virtually impossible. Knives and forks invariably get tossed away with the trash or sprout legs and walk away.

So what do you do when your supply has dwindled and you need to replace it? Do you want to keep the same pattern? What do you do when that pattern is discontinued by the manufacturer? What do you do when your business is booming and you want to upgrade your 18/0 stainless with sturdier 18/8, but you know that your pattern has played a role in establishing your popular atmosphere? Maybe your restaurant is struggling and you want to keep your pattern, but you realize you can trim some costs by replenishing your stock with 18/8 rather than 18/10 stainless.

Below, you'll find a reference to help guide you through your initial purchase or your replacement pieces to make sure you get the right flatware to suit your needs. We've taken fourteen of our most popular flatware design types to allow you to see how they compare among vendors, so you can match existing flatware or décor with ease:
