Best Badge Reels for WaitressingBest Badge Reels for Waitressing

Depending on where you are in the food industry, your restaurant might have more flexibility than others when it comes to showing some flare off to your patrons, at least as far as your waiters and waitresses are concerned.

Needing the Simple Things

The Key: Your waiters and waitress have the responsibility of handling money on a daily basis. That means that they’re always using the register. While some cash registers require a code to access it, oftentimes a key of some sort is needed. It could be an actual metal key or a swiping card. At any rate, it’s an important key that needs to be easily accessible but also tightly secured.

The Pen: You might also have seasoned waiters and waitresses who can take an order down by memory, and then you have those who don’t. In such cases like this, the old-fashioned writing pen has never been so crucial to the food industry. Let’s face it, if the waiter or waitress doesn’t get the customer’s food order right, chances are they won’t be coming back—and that’s bad, really bad for business.

Making sure that your waiters and waitresses are equipped with the simplest, yet important tools are important. So let’s review: What can you provide your waiters and waitresses that will help them secure their key and pen while providing some flare?

Badge Reels

A badge reel is one of those instruments that you wouldn’t necessarily give a second thought to purchasing unless you absolutely need it. Waiters and waitresses certainly need such a tool.

Badge reels are perfect for keeping any type of key and/or small tool accessible for convenient use. What makes them such a useful tool for waiters and waitresses is the retractable cord that extends out to arm length from the body. With badge reels, your waiters and waitresses clothes or uniforms don’t have to have pockets. They don’t have to worry about staining their uniforms with leaky ink pens either. A badge reel can snap securely onto most ink pens while attaching snugly to the person.
