San Diego-based hospitality leader is serving a post-pandemic return to travel, and protecting guests is still a top priority for hospitality executives despite industry disruptions

“Some refer to the customer expectation of free, fast shipping as the Amazon Effect. Free shipping is not really free, but it has long been known that psychology favors labeling it as such. Many retailers inflate the product price to compensate for the ‘free’ shipping and make a profit on it.”

Front Desk Supply, a leading hospitality supplier based in San Diego, CA, has announced a June PPE special as demand for “vacci-cations” spills over this summer in a quasi-post-pandemic world. A recent survey reports that 71.6% of American travelers say they will take a summer vacation, which is welcome news to small businesses in the hospitality industry still reeling from shutdowns and supply chain delays. PPE will still be a vital need despite millions being fully vaccinated, and Front Desk Supply is happy to offer this special, which can be found at

“We’re passionate about providing care and attention to each and every customer through this tumultuous season, and that includes a laser focus on the branding of our high-quality hospitality supplies that exceed the expectations of our customer’s returning guests from check-in to check-out,” said Mark Zisek, Director of Commercial Operations, Front Desk Supply. “We work hard to provide all the items the hospitality industry needs as we all adapt to shifting needs heading into a year of summer travel unlike any other; it’s as important as it’s ever been to support small businesses impacted by the shutdown and supply chain delays,” Zisek added.

As many products have been held up at sea and at our ports, the impact of shipping delays has been felt across many industries, including retail and hospitality.

“Some refer to the customer expectation of free, fast shipping as the Amazon Effect,” says Zisek. “Free shipping is not really free, but it has long been known that consumer psychology favors labeling anything as free. Unfortunately, what consumers don’t know is that many retailers inflate the unit price of the product to compensate for the ‘free’ shipping and actually make a profit on it. Someone is always paying for the shipping- whether you know it or not,” said Zisek.

Zisek adds that the hospitality industry has been one of the hardest industries hit by the pandemic.

“Front Desk Supply has done our best to pass through shipping costs and has on occasion under-charged to be conservative. While we don’t offer free shipping, we do not inflate our prices. We want to help hotels and motels by offering the best prices for supplies that are necessary to finally welcome their guests back in this new era of travel, not make money on shipping costs,” Zisek added.

Front Desk Supply is an industry leader in hospitality supplies, offering millions of diverse hotel items, including key cards, key card holders, do not disturb signs, notepads, pens, valet tags, concierge tags, parking permits, and luggage tags. As the industry’s needs surrounding sanitization and safety grew in the wake of COVID-19, the company introduced new additions of personal protective equipment such as face masks, sneeze guards, signage, tamper-tape, and more.

As summer travel explodes, Front Desk Supply is offering discounts on custom notepads and PPE (personal protective equipment) products at to help the healing hospitality industry.
