BRUNCH COMPETITION IS FIERCE With competition so fierce these days, and razor thin margins, a good brunch service can more than make up for a middling Tuesday or Wednesday night. Sure, your price points might not be as high, but eggs and waffles have low food costs and customers quaffing a few craft cocktails on a day where you might get two or three quick turns on your dining room could send you into the black for the week. Even if your turnover isn’t quite that high, brunch can be good advertising to build your dinner business. As a matter of fact, your dinner menu could be your source for inspiration. That popular duck confit on your dinner menu? Fry up some potatoes, peppers and onions and top with a perfectly poached egg and you’ve got an amazing duck confit hash. Maybe your raw bar is rolling in some amazing oysters. Try deep frying a few of those mollusks and ratchet up your hollandaise with a little Sriracha for an unforgettable spicy oyster benedict.

Breakfast Smoothies Like it or not, brunch is a hot trend that shows no sign of letting up, but sometimes your customers are looking for a brunch experience without all of the added calories from a mid-morning meal. Smoothies are your answer! Use our IQF West Creek frozen fruit to whip up some great recipes to serve your customers looking for a little less.
