Steal This Idea

Get silverware for a steal

We began using very low-cost, reusable silverware that you sometimes find in hotel room service. This allows us to not lose profits if silverware gets lost when students take food back to their rooms. We also mostly recoup the misplaced silverware when students are cleaning out their dorms at the end of the year.
