A Brief Introduction to Food Carts and Cabinets from Hatch Industries

A Brief Introduction to Food Carts and Cabinets from Hatch Industries

Here at W.D. Colledge, we recognize that foodservice operations generally follow six important steps. We'll get to the rest in later posts, but the one step we generally acknowledge as being the first in foodservice is receiving and storage.

Everything begins with product, the ingredients we process and assemble on behalf of the guest. Of all the lines we represent that contribute to the step of receiving and storage, we wanted to highlight Hatch Industries in that capacity.


Founded in 1977, Hatch is a leading manufacturer of foodservice support equipment. It comes both standard and custom made using ergonomic stainless steel. Units are designed for healthcare, cafeterias, schools, correctional facilities, bakeries, restaurants, hotels, and pretty much any type of operation where receiving and storing inventory is a requirement.

Here's a basic introduction to receiving and storage equipment from Hatch Industries:
