With prices rising in every sector of foodservice, see how TFG can help you mitigate those costs.
The stinging effects of inflation are hurting every sector of the business world, including foodservice. With total food prices spiking by 11.4% over the last year, operators are scrambling to find ways to cut back. But even with inflation being at a 40-year high, there are still methods to create savings in the kitchen.
One of the major culinary casualties of this economic disruption is cooking oil. Even before the start of this surge, TFG and Henny Penny have been helping kitchens save on oil with low-volume fryers and an easy-to-use fryer oil and energy calculator.
Low-volume fryers are designed to have a 40 percent lower oil capacity than normal fryers, yet still manage to cook the same amount of food. This adds up to an annual savings of $3,000-$5,000 on oil costs. A low-volume fryer is also extremely efficient, resulting in oil life of up to 21 days — three times longer than the industry average.
Purchasing a brand-new piece of equipment might be the last thing an operator would want to do during an economic downswing but think of it this way: A Henny Penny low-volume fryer will pay for itself in less than three years, then continue to deliver savings for the rest of its lifecycle. By investing in oil-saving technology like Henny Penny low-volume fryers, operators can realize greater profits for years to come.
