  • 3 Simple Ways To "Go Green"

    Celebrate EARTH DAY on Sunday, April 22, 2012
    With the undeniable push towards eco-friendliness and "going green" there is a conscious effort that should be made by each of us to do our part. Your kitchen- whether that be at home or in your commercial establishment- is a great place to start. 1. Recycle Throwing glass, plastic, paper and other recyclables into the right trash bins is a great way to make a big difference without very much effort. Buy separate bins-one for regular trash and the other(s) for recyclables. We have a big selection of trash bins, including our "Slim Jim" container that's narrow and doesn't take up too much space.

    2. Buy Local Next time you go out to buy groceries-think about investing your money in food products that are grown locally. Investing  money in local farmers and agriculture is a simple way to support your community while eating food that is local and fresh. 3. Fill your Kitchen with Green Supplies Today's market has lots to offer in the way of kitchen supplies so why not stand out and buy unique items that offer an eco-friendly advantage? Doing so will not only set yourself apart but will help make a difference. Remember, a little goes a long way. We stock a number of product lines that are built with eco-friendliness in mind, including Epicurean, Proteak, and BioPlanet disposables. For the commercial customer, think about Energy Star-rated items the next time you're shopping for new equipment.

  • Need More Kitchen Storage?

     

    For any of you that have worked behind the scenes in a commercial kitchen, you know that space is at a minimum and synchronization is key. There are countless moving parts, people included, that have a job to do and limited space to do it, therefore, properly utilizing your space is key to the success and efficiency of the back of the house. One of the ways we recommend you keep your kitchen organized is with Shelving Units. Below are a few perks to buying Commercial Shelving for your facility:

     

    1. Customized Look Every kitchen set-up is slightly different with its own set dimensions to work with. Our wire shelving at Mission Restaurant Supply is completely customizable so you can build a unit around whatever limitations you  may have. All you have to do is buy the posts and shelves individually to create a shelving unit that will fit in your unique space. As you grow, you can simply add to it as you go along. 2. Easy-to-Assemble/ Adjustable Shelving Our wire shelving is simple to assemble and features easily- adjustable shelves so that you can alter the heights of the shelves depending on what you are storing and to meet your changing needs. All you need are your two hands to assemble these units- no tools required! 3. Temperature Whether you need storage for your dry goods or added organization in your walk-in cooler, we have a range of shelving types, from chrome, to zinc, to epoxy, that will fit your needs. For instance, epoxy shelving can withstand the cold temperatures and wet conditions of a walk-in, while chrome shelving is to be used solely for dry goods storage. Continue reading
  • Invest In High-Grade Cookware

    When you hear the word commercial- what do you think? For most, a commercial kitchen conjures up images of a bustling restaurant, clanking pots and pans, sizzling food on the griddle, timers going off, and in a word, commotion. The key ingredient to a commercial kitchen is having the industry-grade supplies and equipment that can handle the rigors of this fast-paced setting.  However, there is often a misconception that commercial kitchen products are only suited for industrial use. At Mission Restaurant Supply, we are trying to change that mentality. Many of our customers are not "commercial" at all, but every day people leading lives entirely opposite that of a foodservice professional. So then why do they come to us? These are people who are committed to quality and they look for this quality for their home kitchens.  Though the cost of commercial-grade products may be at a higher price point, the benefits of investing in industry-adept products will stay with you for the long haul. These products perform under the hardest conditions, and in your home, they will get the job done each and every time.   One such example of this is commercial cookware. Both in our Texas showrooms and online, we have an extensive selection of commercial-grade pots and pans that will handle themselves beautifully in the kitchen. From Stock Pots and Double Broilers  to Fry Pans, Sauce Pots, Braziers, and Roast Pans, our selection ties together the highest quality materials with the reputation of trusted industrial brands like Crestware, Alegacy and Browne-Halco.    
    Deemed "the best non-stick on the market" by one of our customers, this heavy-duty, 12 inch fry pan distributes heat beautifully and never fails to please.
      Mission Restaurant Supply is Open to the Public- that means you don't have to own a restaurant or be buying for your business to shop with us. So even if you're looking for something other than cookware- such as a powerful blender by well-known brands like Vitamix, or perhaps a new undercounter ice machine for your home bar, Mission Restaurant Supply will have what you need.
    There's something to say about investing in quality products that will last while demonstrating their expertise in the kitchen. We are grateful to share this commitment and love for quality products with both our industry professionals and home cooks alike. Start experiencing the quality of commercial and begin cooking with sleek, industrial finesse.

  • The Garland Reputation

    One of our strongest commitments as a foodservice dealer is to represent brands that our customers can trust. When we sell a piece of equipment or any kind of product to you, we stand behind the quality and the reliability of both the product and the manufacturer.

    One of the most dependable brands we have online at MissionRS.com is Garland, a distributor of the highest quality commercial ranges and ovens, amongst other things like fryers, broilers, and grills. Dating all the way back to the early 1860s, Garland began in a Foundry in Detroit, growing into the Michigan Stoves Company in 1873, and was later unveiled at the 1893 Worlds Fair. As the company has grown to the present day, they have maintained an impeccable reputation for quality products and have showcased a resounding commitment to service and efficiency. If you are in the market for a high-powered, stainless steel commercial range, look no further than Garland. The ranges are available in a number of configurations from your basic 24 in. unit with 4 standard burners and 1 oven, to a multi-faceted 60 in. range with 6 burners, a 24 in. raised griddle and 2 ovens. When you buy a Garland unit you become a part of a dependable foodservice veteran that will prove to be a mainstay in your kitchen.

    From chafing dishes to portable cookware, Mission Restaurant Supply has what you need to operate a successful catering company.

Our vast line of serving utensils gives you the option to serve all types of food. We offer tongs in several styles and materials, as well as serving spoons of many shapes, sizes, and materials. When you're throwing a party that is going to last for a long time and have food out for the duration of the event, caterers must take into account food safety. Foodborne illness is always a concern for a longer party as hot and cold foods must be kept at proper temperatures. MissionRS.com offers chafing dishes in many styles to help you combat this fear.  Whether you are seeking round dishes or elongated rectangular shapes,  a gorgeous stand with scrolled metal work elegantly stands out. These dishes come in many sizes, materials, and finishes to provide you with the option to customize your buffet according to your look and aesthetic. We also sell chafing dishes in sets.

    Often times, your staff has to prepare the food in a kitchen located miles away from the main event. If this is the case, you require an easy and affordable method to transport these dishes. MissionRS.com offers catering supplies that provide solutions for transport. Our insulated pan carriers come in a variety of styles and sizes. These carriers can make moving food a breeze. They come in several color options as well.  A simple insulated carrying bag can be just the thing if you are only transporting smaller items from the main kitchen to the event. We also offer portable cooking equipment for those businesses that do their cooking on site. The smallest, most transportable of such items is a butane stove that folds into a carry case. For larger events, we offer larger items like a portable grill or fryer which is sure to impress guests by assuring them that the food they are about to eat has been freshly prepared just for them.

    If your catering company finds itself responsible for beverages as well as food, you will require more tools. We offer a portable bar, which is an investment that looks great indoors, or out. We also offer beverage transport solutions. These dispensers are insulated to keep your beverages at proper temperature during the journey from headquarters to the event.

    You also need to set an atmosphere of enjoyment. For a little something unexpected, try adding a chocolate fountain. Chocolate fountains are an impressive way to provide guests with an easy dessert selection, without putting strain on your already busy employees. These unique items can help your business stand out. As with all products from Mission RS, these larger catering supplies are affordably priced and constructed to stand the test of time.   Did we miss anything?

  • Updating Your Concessions

    The practice of running a concession business, like running any foodservice business, means having all the right supplies and finding the right prices for your budget. What sets a concession business apart is the equipment that is needed and the demand for disposable supplies. Whether you're serving up hotdogs, snowcones, nachos, cotton candy, or popcorn, each type of concession needs its own kind of equipment to make it, along with certain disposables to serve it with. We can help you with both.We have a broad range of equipment and supplies that can be shipped directly to your business, from heavy duty ice shavers, hot dog steamers, and popcorn machines, to the foil bags, syrups, popcorn portion packs and everything else in between. Snow Cone Business If you're running a snow cone stand, chances are you'll need a few things we offer. One of which is a good ice shaver, and the other is syrup along with the supplies to serve the cone to your customer. Our Snow Cone Machines range in price and function, from a basic portable machine  that makes up to 500 lbs of ice per hour to a Hawaiian ice shaver that makes microflake ice out of any kind of cube. Browse all of our Snow Cone Machines at MissionRS.com. We also have a festive trolley made for the Snow Bank machine pictured below.

     

    Now for the supplies- snow cones just wouldn't be complete without all the right syrups. You can find online many different flavors {cherry, grape, blue raspberry, bubble gum, etc.} in large gallon sizes along with the customer-favorite red spoons on our site. Furthermore, we have the paper cone cups, cone cup dispeners, dipper spoons for filling just the right amount of ice, and starter kits for your use. Shop all Snow Cone Supplies.

Hot Dogs In the land of ball parks, stadiums, etc., hot dogs are an essential. Having the necessary supplies and equipment is equally as important.

Knowing what kind of application it will be used for is important as well- we provide broilers, grills, rollers and steamers for all different uses.
