12 Days of Christmas Savings

Save with the 12 Days of Christmas Deals

The Twelve Days of Christmas get an upgrade with our first ever Twelve Days of Christmas Savings starting today!

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: a partridge in a pear tree… If that isn’t the weirdest gift to give your true love – I don’t know what is! Seriously, this song is crazy on so many levels – why do you need eight maids a milking? Or ten lords a leaping?! The only gift that his love may actually want is those five golden rings!

So this year, we’re thinking more practically – we asked ourselves, what are the things that our customers want for Christmas? The result is our Twelve Days of Christmas Savings running today through Christmas! You’ll save up to 35% on the accessories you love for your AutoFry, ventless fryer. Each day we’ll add something new to the sale, making it even better than the day before! At the end of all twelve days you’ll have our largest sale to date – but don’t wait to buy, just like the Christmas cookies you leave out for Santa, this sale won’t last long!

Lessons From IAAPA: Foodservice for Attractions

Foodservice for Attractions

As we wrap up another exciting week at the IAAPA Attractions expo, there are many lessons to be learned from such a huge show. For attractions, the big message we continue to hear from both industry experts and press alike, is that the WHOLE experience matters. When you consider how many options each patron has for their entertainment, you have to know that standing out comes down to experience. Your guests want an experience they can remember for a lifetime, something to take pictures of, post and tweet about, something to share with friends. This is something you need to attack from start to finish, from parking to payment – each touch point you have with your guests should offer them a unique experience, of course this rings especially true for foodservice. When it comes to foodservice for attractions, the experience must be convenient, fresh and memorable. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of that, we’ve round up our best blogs highlighting strategies of foodservice for attractions. Dive in, take a look, and as always, enjoy the experience!

A Lesson on Restaurant Throughput

A lesson on Restaurant Throughput


“Businesses with high throughput levels can take market share away from lower throughput firms.”

Wow, we’ve talked about restaurant throughput before, but we’ve never broken down the definition before. This portion of the definition of throughput struck me as increasingly important. With a million and one options for dinner or even for snack time, businesses MUST focus on restaurant throughput as an effective strategy to remain successful. The alternative is to keep guests waiting for their food and then watching them find a faster alternative the following week. In today’s ultra-fast, super convenient landscape, your consumers have no patience and that’s a challenge you must meet.

Highlights from Foodservice in Convenience Stores

As we wrap up our last day at NACS, there is one thing we one thing we continue to hear from industry experts and convenience store owners alike: foodservice is no longer optional for cstores. With today’s hyper competitive market it seems foodservice in convenience stores is already a differentiator and huge profit driver for stores already taking advantage of it. And for shops that are not? Experts say it’s time to hop on the foodservice train or be left behind at the station. Additionally, it’s not enough to just plug in a roller grill and call yourself foodservice operational — consumers want fresh food in a convenient way. This means you need a clear strategy for implementing a more thorough and cohesive foodservice plan. Lucky for you, we’ve already tackled this subject a few times this year, so lets recap and highlight some of our favorite resources for adding and succeeding at foodservice in convenience stores.
