There’s nothing quite like unrolling that food service tissue – with its brightly colored logo or red and white checked patterns – to reveal the burrito you’ve been thinking about picking up all day.

It’s still intact and packed with cheese, veggies, maybe chicken or beans – all that goodness held tight and remaining in form, thanks to that hug it got from that colorful paper.

Food tissue, for many folks, can be an afterthought. But in reality, it can provide recognition, safety and a festive flair to just about anything you’re preparing.

Rolling up with food service tissue

The beauty of food service tissue is that it’s so versatile. Many restaurateurs use it for rolling up burritos, hoagies, pitas and burgers – even sweet treats.

Still other eatery owners use tissue to line their pizza boxes, takeout boxes or food trays.

There are a few things to consider when choosing which tissue to use.

First off, the thicker tissues are best when you’re rolling something up in them. Handheld goodies are way less messy when cradled by a thicker tissue wrap.

Think high-performance waxed tissue for these applications. They’re able to resist grease, oils and dressings. Ideal for heavy-duty subs and sandwiches, they’re also fully recyclable and compostable.

At, we have a nice selection of solid colors – 19 in all — in addition to a select number of patterns, including those with leafy greens, fresh fruit, checkerboard designs and coffee cups on them.

Lining it up with basket liners

Basket liner tissue that we offer at meets FDA safety standards. It’s available in 15 stock colors and prints.

Lightweight and high-performance versions of our Food Service Tissue are both dry waxed, but differ in thickness with high-performance being the thicker of the two.

We also offer an Economy Grade basket liner, which is unwaxed.

Let’s reflect on a scenario: You’ve just opened your restaurant and you want to get your brand, or logo, out there for the world to see. Since you are just beginning, custom-printed cups, boxes, bags and more might not all be feasible for you right off the bat.

In many cases, though, a custom printed food service tissue liner for those boxes or bags is a phenomenal way to go. You can start with one of our stock patterns, such as those with checkerboard in a number of different colors, or a fruit motif. Or, better yet, provide us with your logo and we’ll get them custom-printed for you.

Make it your own

Here at, we can help you to get that branded food service tissue onto the tables and into the takeout bags of your customers.

Whether you prefer one large logo printed on the tissue, or a repeated pattern, we can work with you and give you something to be proud of – even if you are just starting out.

Food tissue is economical and the turnaround time to get it to you is reasonable, too.

For some of the simpler ones, you can have it in hand in just about 4-6 weeks. For other, more complicated or larger orders, it may take up to 16 weeks.

But the payoff in recognition of your business makes food service tissue a fantastic way to get your name out there.
