Employ these back-of-house labor-saving tips to help your kitchen run at its best potential.

Cross-utilization: Find multiple unique uses for products across the menu. This can include adding a signature protein as the main entrée as well as in a side dish or salad.

Seasonality: Using the same protein, accent your dish differently for your summer and winter menus. All it takes is to vary the sauce, swap the starch or highlight a different fruit/vegetable to meet the season.

VIncorporate products: that eliminate the guesswork. Want to do away with the time-consuming process of chopping vegetables? Try ordering precut produce. Want to offer brisket but don’t have a smoker? Consider a pre-cooked and smoked product that is ready to be heated, sauced and highlighted as your signature creation.
