If there are two requirements for celebration-driven dinnerware, they are stunning aesthetics and an easy-to-use design. Often these two characteristics can be in opposition to one another, but with the Homer-Laughlin China Company's new Gala collection, operators can enjoy the lightest weight dinnerware ever created by HLC, which also carries one of its most elegant appearances.
Let's start with the design.
Gala is light. Very light. Each 10-3/8-inch plate only weighs 23.9 ounces, which is almost 8.1 ounces lighter than any other banquet plate on the market. It's even 3.6 ounces lighter than the average weight of the next seven competitors. What does this mean? Gala can offer maximum ease-of-use.
But that's not all Gala provides.
This collection also has a stunning, elegant, and refined appearance that makes it perfect for banquets, events, celebrations, and of course, galas. Its sleek design and popular Ameriwhite body come in both wide rim and mid rim options, with mid rim providing up to 50 percent more plating space.
As with other HLC collections, Gala also comes with a famous lifetime limited warranty against chipping under normal usage conditions. It's made-in-the-USA production and durability are claims no other commercial dinnerware provider can offer, and it can even be custom decorated to reflect the brand of the hotel or operation.
What's our favorite aspect about Gala?
It's versatility. Yes, the Gala collection is great for banquet service and special events, but it's also great in other types of operations, as well. From high-end restaurants and white table cloth applications to more casual dining operations, Gala can go just about anywhere.
