What is FF&E and Why Does It Matter?

Furniture, fixtures, and equipment, also known as FF&E, is any piece of furniture, appliance, lighting, store fixture, carpeting, or decorative item that defines the aesthetic of your retail location. FF&E helps set a mood and create a specific feeling using custom design patterns for enhanced space and a better customer experience, whether you are in a restaurant, retail or C-Store environment.

When designing a project for a new store opening, renovation, or seasonal transition, FF&E logistics is a vital element of the construction timeline. Whether an office space, retail store, or restaurant, developing an effective FF&E logistics plan to manage the procurement, storage, transportation, and installation are necessary to cultivate a functional space.

Taking on the complete process of FF&E logistics is a complex task. If handled incorrectly, FF&E logistics could be an expensive, unsupportive, and frustrating experience without the right supply chain experts to help facilitate a phased, streamlined project.
