Find the Right Tray for Your Business 

The Cambro guide to selecting the right tray for your business needs.

Trays are everywhere, in every bar, restaurant, café and banqueting facility.  They go through a tremendous amount of wear and tear with many not designed to survive the daily rough and tumble and frequent ware washing cycles.  But they need to look good, they are at the customer interface, they make a statement about the business and it needs to be positive.

When it comes to selecting the right tray, Cambro is an expert in designing and manufacturing trays, making sure each tray is fit for purpose, getting food to customers safely and efficiently.

To help businesses get the best fit for their specific requirements use the Cambro Tray Selection Guide.  With this guide learn of the different types of trays available and what tasks they are best suited to, including which Cambro model fits the bill.  A handy grid makes it easy to make sure the choice of tray ticks all the right boxes.

For some extra help, we have pointers on what a tray can do for your business.

Cut Down on Accidents and Breakages

A non-skid surface prevents items from slipping off the tray and causing spills and accidents.  This type of tray gives staff the confidence to balance and efficiently navigate a tray full of dishes or drinks through busy bars and tables.

An example of this would be, the Cambro Camtread trays.  These trays have a durable, fibreglass construction featuring a heavy-duty, non-skid rubber surface that will not wear out or lose integrity from ware washing demands.

Get Your Brand Noticed  

Never miss a chance to make a statement.  In restaurants with cafeteria-style serving, customers get used to picking up a tray each time they enter the serving line.  That means you have a chance to make two impressions each time a customer comes in to eat.  First, with the tray, they’re holding and second, with the food they eat.

Cambro trays work for your brand. They can be personalised with logos, images or any type of artwork.  For a touch of sophistication, subtle surface embossing can take your brand to the next level.

Increase Profit while being Environmentally Friendly

Switching to non-skid trays can increase your bottom line while decreasing waste.  The non-skid surface of the Camtread tray keeps items in place without the use of paper tray mats and they are more stable and secure to handle than trays lined with a paper mat.

Be Stylish and Practical

Diners love wood trays.  They look great when new but they don’t wear well.  Solve this challenge with Cambro Century Wood Grain Trays, made of high-performance polyester for intensive use but have a textured woodgrain pattern that covers the tray from edge to edge for a real wood look and feel.  They are scratch, chemical and break-resistant, and are dishwasher safe, whilst being contemporary and stylish.

Give Long Service

Trays that damage easily are not only a hazard for staff and customers but they are also costly to replace.  Cambro trays have a sturdy construction combined with the ability to resist scratches, chips and cracks, they offer built-in cost savings by reducing the frequency of replacing damaged trays and offer further security with a five-year warranty.

Stack Tidily

Trays need to stack securely and not trap moisture.  Cambro trays feature stacking lugs for proper airflow for fast drying and perfect stacking.

Cambro has a comprehensive range of trays to cover all types of service from an intimate bistro or coffee shop setting, through restaurants, bars and nightclubs to big staff canteens and giant multi-site operators.  Find the tray for your business needs with Cambro.
