Glass Hanger Racks

Glassware needs to be organized and easily accessible to bartenders. Glass hanger racks solve this problem by keeping stemware and footed glasses within easy reach. Most units can be mounted to the underside of a cabinet or shelf.

We carry a number of hanger racks in our shop. Some of our top units include:

Winco GHC-24

Winco’s GHC-24 is chrome-plated, giving it a sleek and stylish look that will complement any bar. This unit is 24 inches long and 4 inches wide, making it ideal for storing cocktails, wine, martini and other footed glasses.

Mount this hanger to shelving, cabinetry or the ceiling.

Winco GHC-1836 Overhead Glass Rack

The GHC-1836 rack can hold multiple types of footed glassware, thanks to its large size: 18x36x4. 

The unit has 11 channels, which gives you plenty of space for storage and keeps your glassware within arm’s reach for better efficiency.

Thunder Group SLKGH010

If you have a smaller bar, the SLKGH010 is a great option for organizing your footed glasses. This unit is just 10” long and can be mounted to the underside of cabinets or shelves.

Straw Dispensers

For self-service bars, straw dispensers help maintain sanitary conditions and give customers what they need quickly and easily.

Acrylic dispensers are popular options for eateries. These units have push-down designs that dispense straws one at a time. The clear acrylic makes it easy to see the contents and know when to refill.

Some of our shop’s top straw dispensers include:

Thunder Group PLSD002

The PLSD002 has a clear acrylic design, which makes it easy for staff to see the contents and refill when needed. This unit has a push-down design and dispenses one straw at a time.

Winco ACSD-712

Winco’s straw dispenser also has a clear acrylic design for maximum visibility and easy cleaning. But rather than a push-down design, this unit has a spin knob to release a single straw.

Winco SDP-3

The SDP-3 has a fun vintage design that’s functional and sanitary. This unit is made from break-resistant plastic and stainless steel for added durability and easy maintenance.

Coffee Supplies

For self-serve coffee bars, cup and lid organizers are essential. Most units also have space for storing single-serve creamers and sugar.

You can find a variety of sizes and styles to match your eatery’s needs.

Some of our top units include:

Winco CLSO-2T

The CLSO-2T from Winco is a three-tier, two-stack organizer that will keep all of your coffee essentials organized. This unit holds:

  • Cups
  • Lids
  • Sugar
  • Creamers

With dimensions of 8.5” x 13.13” x 12.25,” this unit won't take up much space at your bar.

Winco CLO-3D

The CLO-3D does not have compartments for storing sugar and creamer, but this unit can hold more cups and lids. The unit has two tiers: one for cups and one for lids. Each tier is divided into three sections.

For higher volume bars, the CLO-3D is ideal.

Bar Caddies

Bar caddies are essential for organizing drink garnishes, like cherries, lemons, and more. While they can come in a variety of styles and materials, durable plastic is one of the most popular options. Plastic is long-lasting and easy to keep clean, making it a great option for kitchen bar organizers.

Our top bar caddy is the Winco BC-4P.

Winco BC-4P

The BC-4P is a plastic caddy that comes with a convenient cover to keep your garnishes fresh. This unit has four compartments and is made from durable plastic. The clear cover gives easy visibility, so bartenders can stay efficient.

Some of our top tool organizers include:

Both units are six-compartment organizers that are ideal for storing all of your bar serving essentials, including stirrers, umbrellas, napkins and more.

Cup Dispensing Racks

For fast and efficient bar service, cup dispensing racks are essential. Most racks have multiple tiers that can hold different sized cups, and they’re designed to dispense one cup at a time.

The Winco CDR-3 is our top cup dispensing rack. This three-tiered rack can hold cups of different sizes, ranging from 8 ounces to 44 ounces. The suction feet ensure that this rack stays secure, and you can load this unit up from either the front or the back.

Speed Rails

If you really want to improve the efficiency of your bar, invest in speed rails. Speed rails are, essentially, caddies for your most popular bottles. They’re designed to be mounted to:

  • Walls
  • Underbars
  • Coolers
  • Bar counters
  • Wherever is most accessible to your bartenders

You can find speed rails in single-tier or multi-tier options. 

We have several speed rail options in our shop. Our top picks include:

Winco SPR-42S

The SPR-42S is a single-tier speed rail that’s 42” long, giving you plenty of space to keep your most popular bottles within reach. This unit is made from high-quality stainless steel and can withstand even the heaviest of daily use.

Winco SPR-22D

The SPR-22D is ideal if you want a two-tier speed rail. This unit is 22” long, so it’s a great option if you need something more compact. This model is also made from stainless-steel for the ultimate in durability.

Airpot Racks

If you have airpots at your bar, an airpot rack will keep things organized and easily accessible. You can find these racks in a variety of sizes and styles to meet your needs. Most also come equipped with drip trays to keep your bar clean and safe.

We have quite a few airpot racks in our shop, including:

Both units have similar designs, but one features six compartments and the other features four.
