Plate-Mate Quick Tips

Collapsible 48 Plate

This banquet trolley is especially helpful for cold items. This cart could easily be pre-plated and ready to go and held under a shelf in your cooler until service time.

Table Top 12

Our tabletop models make a wonderful table centerpiece for any event. Simply drape our tabletop Plate-MateĀ® with tulle, satin, or any material that the host likes. Then insert your plates with appetizers, desserts, or any room temperature food. Now the guests can serve themselves and you have freed up a staff member.

Table Top 24

Pre-plate frozen desserts and hang the fully loaded TM24-220 in your walk in freezer with a meat hook and the attached suspension eye until dessert service is required. No last minute rushing to get frozen desserts served before they melt.

Table Top 36

Load this handy model with assortments of cold or room temperature appetizers and leave on your happy hour buffet. Now, you don’t have to worry about one person cleaning out all of one particular appetizer since they will likely only take one plate at a time. Your staff can see the plate tower from a bit of a distance and can glance to see when it needs to be refilled.

Table Top 48

When serving a small, intimate dinner or business meeting for 12 or less, load each side of the TM48-200 with a different course. Load a side table with beverages and now the guests or participants don’t need a staff member hovering during the meeting or dinner. This frees up your staff and gives more privacy to your guests.
