With the New Year comes new reasons to celebrate, and most importantly, a fresh start. In the foodservice world, this means getting your kitchen and your bar amped up so that customers new and old will flock to you and remain loyal patrons. Get your establishment to that level by outfitting your bar with the essential supplies so that you are ready for the crowds. Being prepared can help increase production and eliminate delays. Furthermore, your bartenders can work best when adequate, professional tools are supplied. Need a run down on some of the most common and important things you will need? Here are some ideas:

Essential Bar Equipment and Supplies

We have a large array of Bar Refrigeration, the nucleus of any bar scene, from bottle coolers, direct draw beer dispensers, and back bar coolers in all different configurations. This refrigeration equipment is imperative to your day-in-day-out operation. Having everything you need, from glasses, bottles, and  garnishes properly stored at the right temperatures and within arm’s reach is both expected by your patrons and necessary for your bartenders and staff to increase output and diminish wait times. For years we have been outfitting bars across the country with dependable refrigeration from True, Turbo Air and Metalfrio, to name a few. Our price point varies from higher end models to some very reasonably priced units, but every item is priced competitively and we do our best to offer additional bonuses like Free Shipping when it applies or discounts whenever possible.

When managing a bar, it is a fact of life that things, particularly glassware, is going to break. Glassware makes all the difference when serving up specialty drinks, and replacing such is an important task to stay on top of. Visit our glassware page to order more and get a feel for the different styles available to you through MissionRS.com!

Commercial Blenders and Bar Supplies

Making mixed drinks and other tantalizing beverages takes having the right tools. Shakers, strainers, the right glassware, all of these things go into making some of your bar menu’s most popular beverages. However, one of the most important pieces of bar equipment you can invest in is a quality blender. At Mission Restaurant Supply, we have a wide array of blenders to meet your every need, and we carry models by many different manufacturers, including Vitamix, Hamilton Beach, and Waring. The commercial durability and powerful blending motors ensure that cocktails are blended thoroughly and to your customers’ content.  Make sure to have spare parts on hand to help you avoid delays, should components fail!

Bar Sinks and Mats

Proper sanitization is not only required but imperative to every public establishment, particularly in the foodservice industry. Many of our products on MissionRS.com revolve around the importance of food safety, (have you seen our Janitorial and Cleaning Supplies Page?) and manufacturers all around the country are cranking out new and innovative products to keep your establishment in tip-top-shape. We have an extensive supply of single, dual and triple bay sinks online by manufacturers like Krowne Metal and Regency to make washing your bar utensils and supplies easier and also more regimented. These stainless steel sinks are built to last and are scratch-resistant. Need a new sink? Shop our selection here. We also have a large selection of bar mats and mesh liners, which as any bar owner/manager knows, helps to eliminate messes from incorrect pours and spillage on your expensive bar top. Our selection is easy to clean, easy to use, and is a must-have for your business. Shop liners and mats here!

Additional Bar Equipment and Supplies

When it comes to bar supplies, there are so many things, many of which are essentials, that help make your bar profitable and efficient. Liquor pourers are great cost control devices. Bottle openers, ashtrays, serving trays and money maids help keep the bar operating as usual and with ease.  A good supply of spoons and additional equipment like muddlers and jiggers allow error-free drink making and mixing as well. The list goes on and on… Thinking about updating your bar? Check out all of our Bar Supplies here.
