Restaurants Redefine the Salad

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Restaurants around the country are redifining the salad in order to give customers what they want. And they don’t just want a plate of iceberg lettuce — customers want a salad that’s filling, healthy and on par with an entree.

Not too long ago, salads were merely ordered as a side, or when someone didn’t see anything on a restaurant menu that they liked. A last resort, a way to appear healthy, ordering a salad is now neither of those things because consumers really, truly are paying attention to eating healthier meals.

A recent article in QSR Magazine talks about this new, growing trend in restaurants. The article noted that Technomic Information Services’ “Salad Category Report” showed 55 percent of consumers said they ordered a salad most of the time or every time when they dine away from home. This report also showed that if a salad is unique, new and sounds appealing, 43 percent of consumers are likely to purchase it.

Hobart food cutterFast food restaurants are even working to meet the demands of consumers by offering affordable salads. It’s a good move for fast food restaurants, since the National Restaurant Association’s 2008 Restaurant Industry Forecast found that entree salads are growing in popularity, according to 59 percent of quick-service operators. What’s more is that they found 76 percent of consumers are trying to eat more healthfully now than they did two years ago.

Restaurant Equipment to Make Salads

Restaurant equipment to make salads is a necessity — just having fresh, delicious ingredients isn’t enough to get the job done. If you’re serving up tasty salads at your restaurant, you’ll need a way to keep the carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, sprouts, dressings and anything else you’ll have on hand at a safe temperature. Kolpak walk-in refrigerators can get that job done. And to give chefs and restaurant staff members a place to chop and dice ingredients, you’ll want a quality commercial work table. Hobart food cutters are also worth considering, as they could help get food prep work done more quickly and efficiently. Get the lowest prices on restaurant equipment at ShortOrder.

Fit Frying with Frymaster

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Fit Frying: is it a myth or can it be done? Frymaster has written an article about how it can in fact be done!

Fit Frying: The Challenge

It’s not easy being an operator today. Everyone, it seems, is telling you how to cook. With government agencies mandating removal of trans fats from menus and the Food and Drug Administration expected to deliver recommendations for reducing acrylamide in fried foods next year, delivering maximum taste in foods that are as healthful as possible is a major challenge. Especially when consumers have demonstrated that if something doesn’t taste good, they won’t eat it. Witness the multitude of healthy menu items that have been deleted from restaurant menus over time because they weren’t ordered.

Frymaster fryerCustomer Demand

That’s why fried foods are more popular than ever with patrons – they consistently deliver on flavor. Data from Mintel, a global research company, shows that chicken wings and fingers, onion rings and mozzarella sticks are among the top ten appetizers on chain menus. Clearly, frying is one of the most popular cooking methods with patrons and one that provides unique challenges.

The Solution

The good news is that by following a simple set of principles, called The 4 Factors for Fit Frying, you can be assured your frying methods address current health issues such as trans fats, optimize taste and maximize oil life. The 4 Factors for Fit Frying program was developed by Frymaster, an Enodis company, and offers best practice guidelines for anyone serving fried foods. It consists of four steps you can take to make sure the fried foods you prepare are flavorful and healthful.

Fit Frying: 4 Factors

Factor  1: Choose The Right Fryer

Factor  2: Select The Right Oil

Factor 3: Follow The Right Cooking Process

Factor 4: Establish The Right Maintenance

Frymaster’s white paper, entitled “The Facts on Fit Frying: Impact and Benefits for Foodservice Operators,” provides an executive summary of The 4 Factors for Fit Frying program.
