Paper Silverware Bags – Keeping Silverware Clean and Safe Before it was Cool

Paper silverware cutlery bag with forkAs we approach a “new normal” with dine-in and carryout restaurants reopening in many parts of the country, customers expect to see increased cleanliness standards throughout their dining experience. But wrapping utensils in napkins requires substantial handling time – especially for restaurants that may normally have set forks, knives and spoons on the table with no protective barrier. Using pre-wrapped disposable plastic cutlery can be costly and dangerous to the environment. There is another solution.

Paper silverware bags have been around for years, but they’re gaining new popularity as restaurants seek a way for their staff to minimize handling of sanitized silverware. They can also cut approximately 40% of employee time spent wrapping utensils in napkins. This gives staff more time to serve customers and perform other types of cleaning. When many restaurants are limiting their staff, these potential time savings make a real difference.

Benefits of Paper Silverware Bags

  • Hygienic – After sanitizing silverware, simply slip into a bag and fold the top over to keep it clean until ready to be used. The bag will protect the utensils from dust, germs, and other potentially hazardous contaminants.
  • Time Savings – When you switch to paper bags for silverware protection, your staff will spend fewer hours each day wrapping utensils. Just slip the items in the open-top bag, fold it over, and move on.
  • Easily Branded – Who says safe silverware has to be boring? We can print your logo, sanitization message, and inspirational message or a joke to lift customer spirits on your silverware wrap.
  • Eco-Friendly – Paper silverware bags are 100% recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable. We use sustainably forested paper from trees grown in North America.
