The Alleen Company specializes in many kinds of tent rentals, and most of our tents work wonderfully as a dining tent. You need accessories to go with these tents when you serve food because you can’t expect guests to eat without tables, chairs, plates, cups, and flatware. No matter what kind of food you serve, from a full-fledged meal to grab-and-go items, you need something to make foodservice easier. The Alleen Company describes accessories you need for one of our tents when they double as a dining tent for your outdoor event.
Rather than having catered food delivered, you can make food on-site, just not underneath your dining tent. The Alleen Company rents grills, either charcoal or propane models, for a barbecue at your outdoor event. Make sure you make the food outside of and far enough away from our tents. Otherwise, you create a fire hazard. Grills aren’t just for barbecues. You can boil water in pots for pasta or soups. Hot food choices are endless when you have a way to cook food at your outdoor event.
Food Storage Equipment
Hot food requires the right kind of tools to keep the food fresh until you’re ready to serve it to your guests. The Alleen Company rents ovens and hot cabinets to maintain the right temperature of foods in a sealed cabinet. We also offer coffee makers for hot drinks as well as urns and pitchers for cold drinks and easy beverage service in a dining tent, whether you rent a canopy frame tent, traditional pole tent, clearspan structure, or sailcloth tent.
After you’re done storing the food, you need a way to serve it to your guests attending your outdoor event. Chafers have lids on them to keep food fresh and safe in the dining tent. Make sure to have the Sterno burner underneath to keep the water tray hot. Serving stands and trays are perfect for setting several plates of food next to a table if you hire a catering service or wait staff to serve food to your guests.
You probably have a headcount for your outdoor event. That lets you estimate the number of tables, chairs, and place settings you need for a sit-down meal. However, you need to take into account tables for laying out food service trays and chafers when you utilize a dining tent. You may need an extra two or three tables, depending on how extensive your food offerings are.
