Mother’s Day With Handgards

How to survive Mother’s Day at any restaurant (or how to be a better customer)

Mothers Day is May 12th and we all know what that means – the food service industry is going to be busy!

As one of the most important holidays of the year, Mother’s Day is a great opportunity for restaurants to show their appreciation for mothers and their hard work by providing them with delicious meals. But what does it take to prepare for Mother’s Day? Well, it takes a lot of people working together! Restaurant staff and customers alike can contribute in helping each other to make mother’s day special.  Here are some ways that everyone (including customers) can contribute their parts:

Staff Members:

The first step in preparing for Mother’s Day is to ensure you have enough staff available to handle the influx of orders. This can be done by having a few extra people on hand or simply making sure your current staff members are well rested and ready to go.

Early Preparation – Handgards suggested early preparation by utilizing some of our food-yielding items such as proportion bags and food storage bags to maintain fresh fruits, dough, and more. This will ensure that everything is ready when it needs to be which will help keep costs down (and hopefully your customers happy!).

We suggest using Handgards Food Storage Bag to keep any of your food items fresh and lasting longer to prepare for Mother’s Day specialty dishes. 


Abundance of Food Options – It’s important that there are plenty of options available for mothers so they can choose whatever they like best. This means preparing lots of different dishes so there’s something for everyone! If you need some solutions for dishes that offer particular ingredients for mothers and promote healthy eating habits for their children, check out Handgards Daily/Weekly Preportion Bags to monitor portions and specific foods such as vegetarian and allergy-based food items.  


The last step in preparing for Mother’s Day is ensuring that your customers understand how much time they need between parties and how large they should be in order for everyone to enjoy their meal without waiting too long in line or getting cold food. We suggest using Handgards Pan Liners for lining steam pans with excess volume menu items, such as scrambled eggs, potatoes, or sauces. Our Pan Liners reduce stacked dirty pans while keeping food constantly warm. 

We have also been customers. When considering seating arrangements, guests and patrons can definitely help improve the dining experience. During such busy periods, they can also take into account the number of employees available. As a customer, communicate your needs and practice time management with your family and friends to help restaurants with their business.

We all can contribute and make a difference in making Mother’s Day as special as it should be. We wish all the mothers out there a very happy, Mother’s Day. We wouldn’t be her without you.
