Buying paper products in bulk is a necessity for a restaurant. But what to do with the cases of paper towels and toilet paper rolls when they aren't being used? Kimberly Clark has cases of paper towels at 20 per case, for example. That's a lot of extra space being taken up! It's a good idea to keep your stock in stages. Place about five back-up rolls of paper towels in your kitchen and/or food prep area. Leave the remaining in your pantry or storage area.
For toilet paper, make a pyramid of three spare rolls on the back of the toilet. Alternately, keep a basket of a few rolls nearby the toilet. The overstock can also be kept in your storage area. Be sure to check supplies regularly -- both in the restaurant and in the supply area.
