Being a food industry business owner means always being on the lookout for efficiencies, improvements, and inspiration. With the competition growing all of the time, it’s important to stay ahead of the game.
Consider cooking with beer to differentiate from your competition. Although beer has been traditionally used in breads and batters, it is as versatile an ingredient as wine and can be used in stocks, soups, reductions, glazes, baking and anything else where liquid is called for.
Food trucks are another innovation in the food industry, but be sure to do your homework before you jump on this trend! It can be a great way to get publicity, build a customer base or try out new cuisine. But be aware of the laws and regulations in your area for mobile food businesses, and consider challenges like parking, refrigeration, cleanliness and repairs.
Lastly, everyone loves convenience these days and online ordering is no different. Make sure your online ordering system is using the most up to date software available. The to-go dining experience must be smooth and efficient to make your business the go to choice for your customers.
