I have been to Smart & Final and have determined that most of their restaurant supplies are on the expensive side of the margin. I found a local restaurant supply store that saved me a lot more $. Although, keep an I out for sales at S&F, because they do have some good deals.

Equippers has some great deals as well. That's where I got my chafers. Cost, including delivery, was cheaper than S&F.

If you really care about this place, you'll show some respect for it.
