Buying an initial bulk order of equipment
« on: November 07, 2018, 11:31:07 AM »
I did a bit of research and my conclusion led me to two places:

Not in any order of preference:

1)  "Webstauranstore".com

2)  "Lloydpans".com

Any experiences?

You are taking a chance with webstauraunt that your stuff will come damaged, I spend the extra money at a local supplier for the extra piece of mind, everything comes assembled and they put it where I want it for not that much more. Have been burned by webstauraunt a couple times too many and their customer service isnít great.

Yes - Lloydpans too expensive for me.

Webstauranstore - good deals to be had, shipping hurts on small orders.

Just got this via email.

When I was previously in the restaurant biz I was in NYC (Manhattan) so always bought everything local of course, but that was prior to 2000 anyway.  I have dealt with Websuarnstore a bit, but i was in the gas station/C store biz and never a problem, thought was great pricing and delivery, never damaged anything?? 

Never dealt with Lloyd, no experience. 

I have no local (like being in a major metro area) where i am at in the Midwest. 

This is for lots of staples and accessories, not heavy appliances, etc.

Don't give Lloyd your business. Junk.

Webstaurant will more than likely deliver product that is damaged. You have to check it upon delivery. I've had no issue getting refunds or replacement equipment with them, however.

I like webstaurant because, even with some of the hassle, it's still significantly cheaper than most restaurant supply stores. Some things aren't as good as name brand (the dough trays are pretty bad) but smallwares and other items are pretty good.

Can't comment on Lloyd's, but my webstaurant experiences match yours.
In grams we trust.

I know nothing about this company and I only mention them because they are local. Been watching them convert a large building for their business (yea, a new tax payer). It looks like they are up and running as I go by.
