Top reasons why flavored fries are the next big thing

deluxe_friesFlavored French fries are, indeed, a treat – we’ve tasted them ourselves, we’ve shown them off to fairs and hospitality events, we’ve sent packages all across the US and the world to chefs who couldn’t wait to get their hands on them. And, now, after studying everyone’s feedback and seeing how venues benefit from using our products, we can firmly say that, yes, flavored fries are the next big thing! So, dear chefs, hold on to hats and let us walk you through our top reasons for ordering your first batch of Gourmet Fries Seasoning.

  1. Everyone already loves potato chips that taste like barbecue sauce, ketchup, sour cream and onion etc. Imagine doing the same for fries! Adding popular flavors to fries will lead to developing products which guests will anxiously try.
  2. Our line of fries seasonings is made of add-on spices which don’t require high investments in product and that don’t take up freezer space. This means that you can introduce new side dishes into your menu without compromising on efficiency or affecting your kitchen flow. Moreover, you don’t need to hire another person to prepare the new side dishes.
  3. They are good for marketing, as they add variety to your already existing menu. You already have fries in the menu, so why not spice it up with flavors like Cheesy Cheddar, Flame Grilled BBQ, Garlic Parmesan, Ketchup, Salt & Garlic Pepper, Salt & Vinegar, Sour Cream & Onion and Wild Buffalo? This way, you get to create a whole new fries menu which will surely grab your customers’ attention. Even more, if you are feeling really creative, you can play with the flavors and create fries starters, sharing platters etc.
  4. They are a great way to generate word-of-mouth. Guests enjoy indulging in the crispy, bite-sized treats and can’t stop talking about the new, fun tastes. Flavored fries will surely make you the talk of the town both offline and online, on social media. Join the #flavoredfries map!
  5. They generate profits. Each serving of flavored fries costs you $0.03 to make. If you sale each side with an extra of $0.50 compared to the average one, you will enjoy a $0.47 profit / serving. For every 100 portions of fries served, you gain $47. Take into account your average sales, how much will you make per month?
  6. Our studies show that creating a flavored fries menu increases fries sales by 28%. The reason is simple: people order more side-dishes to try all the flavors, they recommend it to others, as well, and they return to your venue for these mouth-watering treats.
  7. They drive beverage sales. Choose them as a house snack on game evenings, and you’ll keep the beer coming all night.
  8. They make a good differentiator. Most casual dining and quick service restaurants have similar menus, which makes it hard for guests to pick a favorite. They often choose based on proximity, parking spaces etc. Flavored French fries will surely make you stand out from the crowd.
  9. Unlike dips, ketchup, vinegar etc., which make potatoes soggy, the Gourmet Fries Seasoning line keeps your fries crispy on the outside and smooth on the inside.

10. One serving of Gourmet Fries Seasonings is less expensive than one serving of ketchup.

Ingredients:

  • 5 oz. of Gourmet Fries Seasoning Wild Buffalo 
  • 5 oz. of Gourmet Fries Seasoning Salt & Garlic Pepper
  • One 14-16-lb. fresh turkey. 
  • One onion
  • Half of stick of butter
  • 2 cups of chicken broth. 

Cooking method:

Mix the Gourmet Fries Seasoning flavours in a bowl. Rub most of the mixture all over the turkey and rest chill for 7-8 hours. Leave 2 tablespoons for late. Take it out of the cooler half an hour before cooking it. By being applied directly to the skin, the delicious taste of the seasoning mixture will easily get into the meat, activating its taste. 

Preheat your oven to 425°. Rinse turkey under cold water and pat it dry. Don’t forget that wet skin will leave your meat soggy, so make sure that the skin lacks humidity. Stuff the bird with the diced onion and seasonings mixture. Working from the neck down, gently loosen the skin from the turkey and rub butter under it and outside of the bird. Tie the turkey’s legs together with kitchen twine, pour 1/4 of the broth into pan and roast for 30-40 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325° and let roast, ensuring that you always maintain broth in the pan. Take it out 2-3 hours later. To make sure it’s perfectly cooked, insert a thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh and only take the turkey out when it shows 165°.

Transfer turkey into foil and let rest for 30+ minutes, before serving. 

Enjoy!

Why Additonal French Fry Options Equal Higher Profits

Just One Additional French Fry Option on Your Menu Can Instantly Increase Sales and Profits

French_fries1

One of the easiest ways to increase revenue is to increase the check average of the customers you already have. For many restaurants, French fries are one of the best areas on the menu that allow you to do that.

How do we know? Lamb-Weston recently asked 1,000 consumers and 300 foodservice operators about how they approach French fries. The results were clear…

Fact: Adding more options to the menu dramatically increases sales.

In the Lamb-Weston study, they focused on adding a second type of French fry to the menu. This second option was positioned as a ‘premium upgrade’ from their regular offering. What they found in adding that second option was:

  • 83% of operators reported an increase in overall French fry sales of up to 20%
  • 86% of operators said their menu appealed to a broader range of customers.
  • 81% of customers said they’d order fries more often if the establishment offered more fry options that resonated with them.
  • 77% of customers want their favorite restaurant to offer more than just their ‘standard’ fry offering.
  • In one case study, simply offering a second French fry option increased gross profits 28%.

seasonings1Our Gourmet Fries Seasoning can help you instantly tap into the huge revenue and profit potential that’s already there.

With eight innovative flavors your customers already crave, our Gourmet Fries Seasoning makes it easy to provide your customers with additional options while providing great value

How Can More  French Fry Options Impact Your Restaurant?

  1. Calculate how many orders of fries you sell each week.
  2. Assume 50% of your customers would upgrade to an innovative offering if given the choice.
  3. With a minimal up-charge of 50-cents, how much additional revenue would that produce?
  4. With a low investment of 3-cents per serving, how much additional profit would that generate?

You can play around with the numbers to best mirror how your restaurant would handle it, but the numbers don’t lie.

This one simple shift in menu offering is a fantastic ROI and one of the quickest and easiest ways to maximize your menu potential.

How to Try it Out In Your Restaurant:

  • Pick a flavor and run it as a special offer for a week. When someone orders a burger and fries, have your servers ask them if they’d like to try your fun new Garlic and Parmesan fries today.
  • Are they ordering fish? Have your servers suggest that your special Salt & Vinegar fries would go great with that.
  • Did they order wings? Have your servers ask if they ‘want to get wild’ and pair them with some Wild Buffalo fries.

You can experiment with a single flavor or offer a wide variety. The key is to actively communicate your new offering to your customers in ways that makes sense and appeal to their tastes. Let your servers try your new flavored fries and their excitement will effortlessly carry over to their guests.

Watch the Profits Stack Up Fast

moneyWhen you’re done with your experimental week (or month), check your POS reports:

  1. Did your overall fry sales increase compared to your average?
  2. Did a high percentage of your fry sales come from your special offering?
  3. Did you notice an increase in overall check averages?

The answer to all three should be a resounding ‘YES!’
