The holidays are here, and the peppermint lattes have arrived! Coffee shops will be delivering delicious specialty drinks and supplying the masses with the caffeine they need to make it through the busiest of days.
It only makes sense that coffee shops capitalize on the needs of their patrons to also fill their appetites with delicious food. Now, we are not just talking muffins and scones here, we are talking hot, sweet, and ready to eat!
This time of year, coffee shops are thinking of new ways to fill their menu with seasonal favorites. Adding a food menu may seem like a challenge, but with the right kitchen equipment it is easier than you might think. Ventless kitchen equipment has been supplying different industries across the world. Today, ventless foodservice equipment seems more common than ever and there is no time like the “present” to join in on the movement.
Automatic, fully contained deep fryers, like the AutoFry® and high-speed oven, the MultiChef XL ™ are just a few of the options you can use to build out your food program. Prepare things from breakfast and lunch items, to snacks on the go. Whether it is crispy hash browns from the AutoFry or toasted sandwiches from the MultiChef XL, your guests will keep coming back for more, just like they do for that pumpkin spice coffee. Do not be afraid to get a little crazy with your food choices. Menu additions like beignets, are popping up in coffee shops across the country! These soft doughy desserts make for a perfect hand-held nosh. Or, how about Mile High Hash Browns, loaded with melted cheese and crumbled sausage or bacon? Either are sure to bring pure joy to your customer’s faces when they take that first bite.
Now, let’s talk about saving money. Ventless equipment requires no hood installations, helping owners and operators avoid costs of nearly $30,000.00. Not to mention the additional fees to have your hood systems cleaned and serviced quarterly. Additionally, hood-free options like the MultiChef XL and the AutoFry are easy to use, allowing them to be operated by any employee. This means your business can run on low labor costs, helping you focus more on your guest experience.
Ventless equipment is the gift that keeps on giving, so don’t miss out on the profit possibilities that await.
