Serveries and Displays

Serveries and displays are used to house food or drink in catering establishments that have some form of self service, or a canteen set up (where food is served on to a plate as you wait). They provide a purpose of displaying food in a pleasing way but also a practical purpose of keeping food hot or cold and optimising storage space. Common types of serveries include hot cupboards, heated banquet cart, hot hold cabinet, serve over, salad bars, drop-in units, and reach-in counters. Serveries and displays are commonly found in buffet restaurants, snack bars, airports, cinemas, theatres and canteens.
