Every property owner in the hospitality industry knows how many products and supplies are needed to keep a hospitality property running smoothly. The process of constantly ordering supplies could be difficult to enjoy, but where and how you purchase the linens and other products could save the property money. If your property is currently in the slow season, this could be an ideal time for upgrading or adding new linens since it will give the staff time to make changes before your busy season. Property owners can qualify for hospitality-grade products because they are part of a business, and these products come with many added benefits. Hospitality-grade products often come at a reduced price, are more durable, and tend to be available for long periods of time.
Wholesale prices are more common in a business to business framework than in a retail setting. These prices are usually reduced because of the quantity of items being sold at once. This is why some products have such large case pack sizes. Pricing can get extremely competitive, so wholesale pricing can give your business an economical advantage because you are purchasing the merchandise at a good value. Retail products are usually sold individually and often directly to the consumer which makes it considered a one time purchase. Individual purchases are usually greater in cost than when buying in bulk.
Many commercial-grade products are sold for wholesale prices in the hospitality industry, and are designed to be more durable than your average retail product. Lodging professionals need linens that will be able to withstand harsh use from guests and frequent laundering. Properties constantly have new guests checking in to each room, so the linens like pillows and sheets need to be clean. Retail products don’t need to be laundered as frequently since they are typically being used by the same person over and over again. Hospitality-grade products are designed knowing that a lot of people will be using them.
Hospitality-grade products can be specially manufactured to help reduce drying time by up to 30% compared to the average time for most other linens. The less time the linens spend in the dryer means the less heat they will have to endure which can break down the fabric fibers. Hospitality-grade linens are designed with fibers that are stronger and sturdier than normal linens which increases the longevity of these linens.
Available for Longer Periods of Time
Hospitality-grade products are known to be available longer than retail products. At a retail store, it is common to see a product on the shelf one week and gone the following week. Retail products are constantly changing whether it be for what trends or is currently popular or for seasonal changes. For example, some products on the InnStyle website have been available for years like the MicroCotton® Hotel Collection Towels. InnStyle is constantly getting new products, but many are listed on the website as long as they are still available and in stock.
Secrets to Success
Wholesale commercial grade linens can help property owners save a lot of money. The large quantities that wholesale commercial grade linens come in can be an added benefit for property managers. Smart property managers implement linen rotations which can include three sets of linens for each bed. There are linens being directly used by the guests, another batch being laundered, and a fresh set ready for the next guest currently in a storage area. With so many linens being used in the cycle there is a safety net for when items inevitably get stained or ruined. This is why it is helpful to have the same products throughout the property.
