  • Standing freezers, refrigerators and deep freezes.
  • Pots and pans.
  • Tables and chairs.
  • Steam tables and buffets.
  • Food storage containers.
  • Cooking utensils and flatware.

Restaurant FF&E also includes soft furnishings such as tablecloths, napkins and rugs, and miscellaneous items like artwork and decorative objects.
