Hotel & Motel Equipment & Supplies
Some individuals work with hotel and motel equipment and supplies. As you may know, this is a very big business, and wholesale distributors play an important role when it comes to providing lodging facilities, inns and luxury cabins with the supplies they need for guests. When you get involved with this business, you are likely to handle a broad selection of mini shampoos and conditioners, bath towels, tissue paper products, small soaps and even individual coffee packets. After all, the hospitality industry calls for a lot of supplies and janitorial equipment for cleaning the rooms or luxury suites.
As with most jobs, there is generally some initial training involved for men and women who get involved in this business. If you are a distributor of hotel and motel equipment and supplies, then it is important that you understand various products and prices. For instance, if you work for a wholesaler, then you will probably sell products and supplies to inns, rental cabins and airport lodging facilities in bulk and at discounted rates. This can include toiletries for bathrooms and kitchen amenities. Clearly all hotel and motel rooms call for clean bed sheets and bath towels, as well as toilet paper and toothpaste.
When hotels and motels buy these products and supplies from you, they will expect good hospitality and reasonable rates. After all, you are essentially their main resource for toiletries, bed sheets, shampoos, coffee products and tissue paper. It is your job to be able to answer their questions and address their concerns.
