Brunch

A BET TER

Start by planning your menu and the time frame for brunch. Weekend brunch service typically starts at 11am and ends around 3pm. Your menu can offer both breakfast and lunch options. Consider small plates, which allows your diners to order more and increase check value.

Serve up an array of creative juices and mocktails for diners who are looking to add a bit of exciting flair to their brunch menu. Pick fizzy and fun spritzers and mocktails that feature ready-to-mix beverages, like fruit and vegetable concentrate. This will satisfy their cravings for lighter beverages. To help increase profits, you can also suggest an added shot of their favorite liquor. Streamline your service by offering a la carte and prix fixe menus to keep things simple for your staff. Keep your kitchen staff focused and inventory efficient by offering a refined menu. High-value ingredients, especially at the center of the plate, will increase profitability by offering quality and value. Seafood is a versatile protein that is a favorite on any menu. Peeled and deveined shrimp and pre-baked calamari can save you valuable labor and yield high profits during peak serving times. Additionally, using alternative cost- effective cuts of red meat and pork can be incorporated to any menu and used to create an elegant plate. For inspiration on how to maximize value cuts of meats on your menu, try adding them to ethnic recipes, which can stand out on your menu and be highly profitable.

MENU TIP Compound butter – butter creamed with

other ingredients such as herbs, fruit, spices, garlic, wine or shallots – is a vehicle for big flavors. Add to steaks or seafood to enhance a dish and make it more luxurious and increase diner-perceived value.

holidays

Take a look at last year by pulling your data and setting a plan from the insights learned during these holidays. Review your business as a whole – staffing levels, ordering guides, menu offerings, hours of operation, take-out packaging and more. Make the necessary tweaks to accommodate the shift in business. Now is the perfect time to prospect new opportunities to increase sales.

EASTER Commonly found on breakfast and lunch menus throughout the year, ham shines as the main holiday entrée in most Easter feasts. When deciding what kind of ham you'll be serving this Easter, consider the application and customer expectations. This year since most buffets, banquet and carving stations are suspended, create a family-style brunch to-go including a ham with carving instructions. Also, include a choice of sides and desserts to round out your family meal.

MOTHER’S DAY As the biggest day of the year for the foodservice industry, the heat is on to prepare top-quality dishes and impeccable service for diners. Adjusting your normal menu and service can leave lasting impressions on guests and make every mom feel special on their big day. Go above and beyond to make moms feel special by offering a single rose, free dessert, cheese platter, or even a cocktail, mocktail, or spritzer. Say thank you to each mom that dines at your restaurant or leave a special note with coupons for future visits in your take-out packaging.

In 2020 consumer spending at restaurants soared 103% on Mother’s Day Sunday and 63% on Saturday, compared to average daily revenue throughout the corona virus crisis, according to an analysis of transaction data at 48,000 local restaurants by software and data firm Womply.

BRUNCH gives comfort Brunch family-style meals provide comfort to families and are the most cost-effective and efficient way to execute an off-premise dining program. Some operators have found success by creating a separate, limited takeout menu that offers a few select brunch packages. This has the added benefit of a meal that is quickly and easily assembled; providing operators with an efficient means of fulfilling consumer needs and driving revenue.

Spend some time researching popular local comfort foods on your menu and make sure they stand out as winners. Comfort foods are called that for a reason; they are enjoyable to consume and provide relaxation to diners.

DIRECTIONS

Red Velvet Pancakes with maple cream cheese syrup

Prep Time: 40 Minutes Cook Time: 10 Minutes Servings: 1 Gallon of Batter

8 oz cream cheese, softened 2 cups maple syrup ½ cup unsalted butter, softened 2½ lbs Baker’s® Source pancake mix 3 cups buttermilk 2½ cups water ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 Tbsp. red food coloring

DIRECTIONS 1. In blender, blend cream cheese, maple syrup and butter until smooth. Makes about 3½ cups. 2. In large bowl, prepare pancake batter with pancake mix, buttermilk and water as label directs; whisk in cocoa powder and food coloring until combined. 3. To serve, preheat griddle to 325°, spray flat top and 3½ to 4 inch heart-shaped heat-proof cookie cutter(s) with pan spray. Place cutter(s) on griddle and ladle batter into cutter(s). Cook until air bubbles have developed; flip and cook 2 minutes. Serve pancakes topped with Maple Cream Cheese Syrup.

While the bacon is cooking, whisk the eggs in a medium bowl with salt and pepper. 4. Once bacon is cooked, remove from the skillet with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. 5. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat; once the foaming subsides, pour the eggs into the skillet. Cook the eggs, stirring constantly, until they begin to set but are still loose. 6. Turn off the heat. Fold in the cheddar cheese, green onions and crumbled cooked bacon. 7. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the filling into the center of each thawed pot pie crust. 8. Fold the pie dough in half to form a half-moon and gently seal the edges with your fingers. Then twist and fold the edges of the empanadas with your fingers. 9.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL

Located in Knoxville’s historic Old City, the Southern Grit Kitchen & Bar brings southern and low country inspired cuisine to the area. Inspired by his family’s recipes, B.G. Dehart the owner of Southern Grit, designed a menu with comfort food and coastal flare. THESOUTHERNGRIT.COM

We spoke a few minutes with B.G. about his brunch menu: QUESTION: How did you create your brunch menu? B.G.: We opened Southern Grit in November 2019 and did not originally introduce brunch until about mid-January. Knoxville is a strong brunch area and we started off keeping the menu simple. Our menu is based on southern comfort foods; we introduced a few items at a time and played around with different ingredients. QUESTION: What are your top items on your brunch menu? B.G.: Our biscuits have been our top sellers. The top three are Everett, “Big Dan”, and Penny McGill. We have been very creative with flavors and toppings.

B.G.’s Sysco Sales Consultant, Thad Harshbarger, shared with us that Sysco had done a business review, helped with costing out the menu, designed and printed menus along with helping get new items to keep the menu up to date with the changes through Covid.

The Everett biscuit is fried chicken, layered with bacon, pimento cheese and pepper jelly

The “Big Dan” is fried chicken layered with bacon, cheese and sausage gravy The Penny McGill is an open-faced biscuit, hash brown casserole, 2 over easy eggs and sausage gravy QUESTION: Do you have any top beverage items for brunch? B.G.: We introduced $12 Mimosa Bottles (choice of juice: orange, pineapple, grapefruit, cranberry) which boosted our brunch business. We had been completely closed down from mid-March to midMay; we opened up in May for curbside only. We had lines waiting around the corner. QUESTION: What tips can you give us on starting a brunch menu? B.G.: Concentrate on three main things: quality product, good customer service and affordable prices. This not just for brunch, but for all the business.

Thank you Southern Grit FOR SHARING YOUR STORY WITH US

HOW TO BEST PACKAGE YOUR TAKE-OUT AND DELIVERY

How can we help ensure your food arrives at its destination in the same condition as it leaves your restaurant?

How to best package your take-out and delivery: HOT / COLD

Separate hot and cold items. Use different compartments or delivery bags based on product temperature. This showcases your thoughtfulness and integrity of your menu items. Good packaging will help control temperature and ensure customer satisfaction.

PLACEMENT

Test your takeout packaging, place your top-selling items and beverage in your current packaging. Close the takeout bags and boxes as if it was ready for pick-up. Set it on the counter and let it sit for at least 20 minutes. Open it up and make a judgment call on the quality. Is it fresh? Do you see room for improvement? Consider making adjustments to your packaging or menu item. Be sure to use perforated sections on the packaging for ventilation to allow steam and moisture to escape. If you do not have this type of packaging, cut holes and retest. If it improves your quality, consider purchasing ventilated packaging. Ventilation is important for crispy items like fries and chicken tenders.

PACKAGING

With the increase in take-out and delivery, many consumers prefer eco-friendly packaging. They will value your sensitivity to the environment and will create repeat business.

DRINKS/COCKTAILS

Make sure lids stay securely in place. Choose a lid that will not leak during transit.

TAMPER-EVIDENT

Ensure your customers’ safety and peace of mind by utilizing tamper-evident products. Leads to a greater trust in your restaurant, especially if they are a first-time diner.
