Not a single businessman planning to open a restaurant business, not a single cafe or bar owner has the right to underestimate the importance of choosing the right equipment for the success of his business.
The level of competition in the industry (in Kyiv, Kharkov and other cities of Ukraine) is so high that neglecting at least a small part of the functionality, efficiency, comfort and quality in customer service means losing great business opportunities.
Bar equipment, whether it is dishes, industrial equipment, a bar counter or chairs, must meet the strict modern requirements for its quality, appearance and reliability.
Any professional equipment that you may need in your bar or cafe can be found in the voluminous catalog of the DSTO online store.
