Gessner makes a wide variety of products not often thought of, but very necessary to most restaurant operations.
A tabletop company that sometimes doesn’t get its due recognition is Gessner Products
. Located in the suburbs of Philadelphia, where they’ve been for over 50 years, Gessner makes 1)
a great product; 2)
a creative and, often cost-savings, product; and 3)
products that go with virtually every menu type; and, finally, 4)
a product that is made here in America.
And you thought ramekins only came in white!
Gessner’s line of melamine ramekins appears to me to be bigger than nearly anyone else’s and now, when I see the colors they’re making them in, they really look terrific. I don’t pretend to be an expert in ramekins, but these look great with nearly any kind of ceramic plate….porcelain, bone, flint body, doesn’t matter.
Items like their spouted ramekin (comes in 2 sizes, and I’m sure a rainbow of colors
) or their 3- compartment server are examples of how the clever folks at Gessner
respond to the changing foodservice market and and attempt to help operators lower costs. Ramekins may not be the sexiest part of foodservice, but Gessner
makes them sexy. You can get spouted ramekins, smooth sided ramekins, fluted ramekins, square ramekins, contemporary ramekins, and more from Gessner.
The team at Gessner
is smart, too. They make many of these items in something called SAN, which looks like glass but doesn’t shatter when its dropped, making it safer and more cost effective than glass. Gessner has a lot of other items in both melamine and SAN and you can see them all by going to: www.gessnerproducts.com
