Breakfast: This means war!

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

According to USA Today, the fast-food industry is gearing up for a war.

On breakfast.

Yep, the breakfast market is said to be worth $77.6 billion, which makes it very appealing to the fast-food giants, who believe staking a piece of that market “can mean the difference between growth and stagnation.”

Choosing the Best Commercial Range For Your Restaurant

Choosing the best commercial range for your restaurant doesn’t have to be a difficult task. When shopping for a restaurant range, you’ll want to consider a few things. The first is whether you need a heavy duty range or a medium duty range. Most restaurants and chains use medium duty ranges, but places like hotels, schools, hospitals and high volume restaurants use heavy duty units to get the job done.
