Nearly one in three Americans think hotels with great restaurants are more memorable than those without, according to a study conducted by global public opinion firm YouGov. Hotel F&B is widely recognized as an important contributor to a hotel’s market positioning, rooms revenue and overall asset value, and great hotel restaurants run on high-quality kitchen equipment and service accessories. HSM’s F&B category management team provides customers with superior pricing on the supplies and equipment needed for any kitchen construction, renovation or replenishment, but we also understand that F&B is a crucial part of the guest experience. At HSM, our experts continually monitor and relay industry trends to help our properties up their game while keeping costs down.

HSM’s procurement programs span a wide range of foodservice equipment companies and types, ensuring that each hotel’s specific kitchen production needs and budget are met. Our suppliers are skilled in not only prototypical back-of-house and dining room installations, but also customized equipment solutions to reflect individual property needs. HSM’s supplier network includes F&B industry leaders such as Vulcan, Frymaster, Delfield, True, Hobart, Champion, and Manitowoc Ice with some of the most frequently sourced large equipment items being refrigerators, freezers, ice machines, dishwashers and cooking appliances.

For customers looking to take on their next tableware project, HSM can offer insights and expertise to help select and negotiate top-quality tableware and buffetware accessories at rock-bottom prices. Leverage HSM’s global procurement reach to ensure cost-competitive pricing on pieces from everyday use to luxury dining, and keep your property up-to-date with F&B safety regulations through the use of touchless dispensers, automatic opening devices, buffet guards and covers sourced through our portfolio of vetted suppliers. Our category management experts evaluate individual products for the best price point and then bundle items for shipping to negotiate the most competitive freight solution, so our customers can elevate their guest dining experience while reducing overall cost.

Like fashion and design trends, F&B trends are continually evolving, and HSM’s suppliers have their finger on the industry pulse to ensure our customers always have access to the most current products and equipment. Energy efficient appliances have been trending for several years now, and as the manufacture of these items becomes more refined, our customers are seeing greater long-term cost savings while securing a more sustainable infrastructure. In a more recent F&B trend, some hotels are gravitating toward an open-kitchen concept. For designs that invite all eyes on the kitchen, our category management team and suppliers can help source attractive equipment and chef cooking suites to create the desired aesthetic vibe for your space.

HSM knows F&B. And we know how to deliver a unique, high-quality experience for your guests while curating a tailored, value-based solution for you. Connect with HSM today to begin leveraging our F&B value to enhance yours.
