When it comes to napkins, it’s important to consider what your business expectations are and who your customers are. Every napkin is different and because of this, you need to make a few considerations before buying napkins. In this blog, we will guide you on picking the right napkins for your business.
Key Things To Consider When Picking The Right Napkins
Types of Business
The decision to choose napkins stems from what kind of business you run. If you run a café, you most likely will need to choose paper napkins that are made to be disposed of after use. Paper napkins are cheap, and they meet the criteria for hygiene and serviceability.
If you run a restaurant, you may opt for cloth napkins that are highly absorbent and easy to wash.

When picking the right napkins for your business, consider your menu. Most restaurants and pubs use a static menu; one that doesn’t change quite often. If your restaurant happens to have these menus, both paper and cloth napkins will suit just fine. If your restaurant has a special birthday occasion or a large gathering, it’s best to use paper napkins as you can expect a high turnover of customers.
Be sure to choose napkins that are aesthetically vibrant and match the theme of your restaurant.
If your restaurant is a buffet, you will need highly absorbent and long paper napkins. Customers will be cleaning up very often so make sure you are prepared to order loads.
Material is everything when you are searching for napkins. For a restaurant, we recommend picking a material that is durable, reusable and highly absorbent.
Cotton napkins in particular are known to be extremely thick and durable, and they come with the reputation of being hypoallergenic.
In comparison, linen napkins are more lightweight but because of their soft material, they dry quickly after being wet.
Linen napkins that are organic and textured are great for outdoor seating as they add to the ambience of your restaurant.
Picking the right napkins for your business requires research and it’s not easy. We hope we’ve guided you in the decision-making process.
