    I'm opening a restaurant and I would like to know how many dishes, glassware, and silverware should I buy.
    Thank you!

    In most places, I think the normal is one and a half times the number of chairs you have. 40 chairs...60 sets of dishes. In our place we have twice the amount because we have a buffet....(they need a clean dish to go for seconds)..and we are the cooks and dishwasher...so if we're cooking the dishes aren't done for awhile.

    Yor uncertainty over this one detail (of many) concerns me.
