How Wholesale Office Supplies Save Your Company Money

Back Print

April 22, 2020

Maintaining and purchasing office supplies can add up to significant expenses over time. However, there are smart ways to cut costs and save money. One effective approach is buying wholesale bulk office supplies. By purchasing items ranging from snacks to cleaning supplies from wholesale food suppliers, you can make a significant difference to your bottom line.

Purchasing Office Necessities From Wholesale Food Suppliers

Frequent office supply purchases not only drain your budget but also consume valuable work time. On average, small businesses spend between $77 to $92 per employee, per month on office supplies. 

To help reduce some of your office supply expenses, consider using your local wholesale restaurant supply store. Choosing bulk and wholesale supplies, like snacks, cleaning supplies, and disposables, can have a positive impact on your overall budget. 

Check out just some of the items your restaurant supply warehouse can offer.

1.  Snacks

Everybody loves snacks and that includes your employees. What’s more? Providing snacks for your staff has far reaching, positive benefits. Having some healthy snacks on hand can help employees sustain their energy between meals. A well-stocked employee break room also means your employees can quickly zip in and grab a bite instead of heading to the store. 

While it might seem costly to offer snacks to your employees, if you purchase bulk food items, you can treat your employees without breaking the budget. It’s always a good idea to have nutritious snacks on hand. Nuts, dried fruits, whole fruit, and granola bars are perfect pick-me-ups for your peckish employees. 

Don’t be afraid to offer something sweet or salty, too. Mini candy bars, licorice, potato chips, and crackers are also great go-tos. If you want to expand your snack inventory, why not add some Cup O’Noodles, or single serving of oatmeal? You can find all of these items, and more, at your local food service supplier.

2. Cleaning Supplies

Cleaning supplies are essential for maintaining a clean and hygienic office environment. However, they can also be expensive. By shopping at your local restaurant supply store, you can save a significant amount on bulk cleaning supplies, including disinfectants and all-purpose cleaners The list doesn't stop there. You can also find:

  • Heavy duty trash bags in all sizes
  • Hand soap and hand sanitizer
  • Toiletry necessities, like toilet paper, paper towels, and toilet brushes
  • Mops and brooms
