Carts, Dispensers & Serving Equipment

Tomorrow’s foodservice director must be an expert in all aspects of the growing demand for innovative equipment to support well-managed meal prep, delivery, retail and catering operations.

Lakeside’s sole mission is to help you tackle tomorrow’s challenges and elevate the strategic value of foodservice in your facility.

Featured Equipment

Utility Carts

Since 1946, Lakeside has been the leading manufacturer of stainless steel and plastic utility carts. We still feature our very first stainless steel cart design, the 311 – a classic and popular selection to this day. However we continue to expand our line to provide the most complete selection of utility carts available. We’re your first choice when it comes to finding the perfect utility cart for back-of-house (BOH) operations or front-of-house (FOH) service!


In 1985, Lakeside changed the landscape of plate levelers when we introduced our Adjust-A-Fit® adjustable diameter plate levelers. We then raised the bar by developing dispensers that can handle oval and square plates. Lakeside established the industry standard of innovation and design for plate dispensers. Over the years, we expanded our line to include tray, rack and pellet base dispensers. When serving food, you can count on Lakeside to have the right mobile dispensing equipment to position the necessary tableware right at your fingertips.

Storage & Transport

Mobile equipment that promotes efficient storage and transportation is key to saving time, labor and cost. Whether you need the flexibility to take your foodservice operation from rough outdoor surfaces into carpeted banquet halls, or simply from the dishroom to the store room, Lakeside has the right product to increase both safety and productivity. Our compact, multi-functional designs help you conserve valuable space, while our numerous model variations and styles guarantee that our products meet your specific product storage needs.

Action Stations

Create memorable dining experiences that will keep your customers coming back for more. We have products that cover every aspect of hospitality – from induction cooking stations and portable bars, to condiment stations and coffee kiosks, and everything in between. To provide your customers outstanding service, choose Lakeside’s outstanding mobile action carts and stations.

Meal Delivery

Delivering warm, nutritious meals on time can meet patient satisfaction and help aid in the healing process. Lakeside offers a wide variety of mobile meal delivery equipment for healthcare facilities, ranging from several styles of tray delivery carts, to person-centered meal serving with our SuzyQ Cart Systems. Give your patients the healing care they need with fast, efficient and quiet meal delivery.
