Chef Anthony: On the Road A tour of our Performance Custom Meats Packing Facility

I

t is a very rare occasion that I am away from my test kitchen this time of year (with so many customers coming in for Customer/Chef presentations), but I recently spent a whole day at the T.F. Kinnealey facility in Brockton, MA., along with Account Manager Robert LeBlanc. Kinnealey Meats is our new sister company, and is the processing facility for our proprietary Performance Custom Meats and Braveheart cut steak program. On the way down, we had

some discussion on what we thought we were going to see. By the end of the day, we saw way more than we expected and were very impressed. I'm going to share with you some of the highlights from our trip. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Jason Beane (Business Development Specialist for Kinnealey Meats) and Jack Feiter (Director of Sales for Kinnealey Meats) our tour guides for the day. We chatted a bit about their facility, their work force and the

provisions May/June 2017

quality of products that they produce. We wore the appropriate blue visitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; smocks over our winter coats, and of course hair nets, as the cut rooms are actually just big walk-in coolers with equipment and product throughout! As we started our tour, we got a view through a large picture window into the cut room with a lot of activity already in progress for orders to be fulfilled that day.

First, I noticed how clean and organized the facility was, even with lots of action taking place in different areas. Upon entering, I was impressed more and more. We first saw some pork products being cut (yes, they process and cut more than just beef). The woman at the band saw was cutting some bone-in pork chops, carefully weighing and examining each and every chop. A gentleman next to her was opening up product for her, making it quicker for her to access what she was about to cut. They worked seamlessly and in tandem with each other. As we watched, Jason and Jack asked if they would show us how they cut the different sizes of pork short ribs, and they gladly obliged. Before we knew it, they displayed single bone, two-bone and 3-bone Korean-style short ribs, and a tomahawk pork chop. The quality was great and I immediately thought of several recipes I'm going to prepare utilizing those ribs. Next in line was a stop at the station where a gentleman was cutting the beef short ribs, bonein ribeye steaks and bone-in sirloin steaks. He showed the same precision in his specialty cuts and was happy to show off his work. The singlebone tied short rib was caught my eye, and even more recipe ideas came into my mind. I plan on braising that bad boy and serving it with mirepoix veggies and rich beef broth, on a bed of creamy, cheesy polenta. Yikes!


<

<

On to the next station: Beef Tenderloin! This was another 2-person station with skills abound. The gentleman doing all of the trimming was making quick work of removing the chain meat and excess fat, along with "rolling" the whole loin on a machine that removed all of the silver skin in a matter of seconds. He then passed along the ready-to-cut whole tenderloins to his counterpart who, in a matter of scant minutes, was cutting and weighing each steak for a variety of orders that she was responsible for. She went through the process of trimming off the tail and placing into one bin, then cutting smaller steaks (3 or 4 oz.), then using the center section for larger cuts. Finally, each sized cut was placed onto its own tray for processing at the next station. I was also impressed with the fact that the person "breaking open" each box of whole product to be cut was actually placing them according to their weight and eye-size onto different racks (9#, 10#, 11#, 12# etc), so that the workers processing the primals could get the right cut of steaks using the correctly sized product. We then witnessed the packaging process, with state-of-the-art equipment geared to handle the volume that is cut each day, along with the variations of sizes that are available. Then, after much anticipation (we were told about this "special place" in the warehouse at the beginning of the tour), it was time to investigate the dry-aging room! Wow! All I can say is, "I already picked out the dry-aged loin I want my next steak to come from!" In a spilt second, we were ushered into a very secluded area of the cooler, with doors closed and fans running. Jason watched as our eyes wandered around the racks of bone-in loins, all labeled, sized and almost ready to be processed! I can't say anything else about it. Just know that it was impressive, and realize that it is very expensive to process any steak using this method, as the trim and waste factor are so incredibly large to get what is needed for a portioned cut steak of this quality. I hope that most of you, one day, will order some of this product and give your customers an incredible eating experience. As our tour was wrapping up in the shipping and receiving area, where the rest of the magic happens, we were introduced to John Kinnealey. John and his cousin Joe are the glue that keeps this incredibly clean and well-run facility together with great efficiency and accuracy. Between Jason Beane, Jack Feiter, and many, many others, they have a deeply-rooted support staff that is experienced and very proud of what they do every day for you, their and our customers!

Meat Buyers Guide February 2017

We did have some lunch before departing, and wrapped up our day by asking more questions and seeking more information about what value-added products and services that we can provide our customers going forward. Each Account Manager has a complete list of the Performance Custom Meats products that are available through our partnership with the Kinnealey team, and if you need any kind of specialty cut pork or beef items, they can most definitely make it happen for you! The whole experience cannot be summed up in just one word as it takes a great many folks to make this machine run as smoothly as we witnessed on this day. They do this every day with quality products, great pride and enthusiasm!

Experience the Difference

The flaky layers of Heritage Ovens Puff Pastry Dough turns everyday tarts, appetizers and pot-pies into gourmet menu offerings commanding higher price points. Experience the difference with Heritage Ovens Puff Pastry Dough! Features and Benefits The flaky texture of Heritage Ovens Puff Pastry squares begins with laminating the dough. Lamination, the process of repeatedly alternating rolled layers of chilled shortening and pastry dough, causes the pastry to “puff up” during baking. The steam entrapped in the shortening between the dough layers causes a physical separation of the dough layers making them light and flaky. Puff Pastry takes “standard” meals to a gourmet level and allows chefs to create unique dishes and signature items that command a higher menu price. From squares to twists, to pockets to tarts, the possibilities are endless.

Simple Ways to Improve Reservation Customer learned about Service You’ve hold times during your ServSafe Course, but there’s another “hold time” they didn’t mention - the time customers wait on hold when they call your establishment. Synergy Restaurant Consultants, whose clients include T.G.I. Friday’s and California Pizza Oven caution, “You never want to place a customer on hold for too long.” And they’re right, hold time should be held to an absolute minimum, but there are times when it is necessary.

Ask a Customer’s Permission

If you’re waiting on a live customer, and you’re also responsible for answering the phone, always ask the live customer for their permission to answer the phone. If they permit you to answer the phone, then follow these tips for placing a caller on hold from Rich Kizer and Georganne Bender of Kizer and Bender Speaking! in an article for “Smart Retailer.” “Your goal should be to avoid placing callers on hold, but when you have to, always, always, always ask their permission first.” If the caller agrees to be put on hold, 60 seconds should be the max. If the caller can’t hold, offer to take their name and number and then call them back within an agreed upon time frame. It may be a good idea to add a friendly, upbeat staff member to handle the phones during peak times.

40 provisions May/June 2017


Consider Using an Online Reservation Service

Another way to reduce phone traffic and improve your customers’ experience is to use an online reservation service, such as OpenTable.com. This allows your customers make their own reservations from your website or Facebook page. According to OpenTable’s website, “Only 4 out of 9 customers complete their reservation when put on hold or sent to voicemail.” It’s also a good idea to use your on hold messages to answer the questions you get all the time, like whether or not you take credit cards, the best place to park, and your hours. If you use a service such as OpenTable for reservations, put that on your on hold message too. That will allow the caller can choose to wait on hold, or hang up and make their reservation online.

Have Effective On Hold Messages

When it is necessary to put a caller on hold, it’s important to create a comfortable environment for the caller. A study done by the North American Telecommunications Association showed that what the caller hears on hold affects how long the caller holds the line. The study revealed that callers hang up the fastest during dead silence. Callers will hold about 30 seconds when they hear music. Keep callers on the line up to 3 minutes by playing music with information. The best on hold messages educate callers about your hidden services. If you’re famous for your burgers, but no one seems to know that you cater, then by all means be sure to promote your catering services to callers on hold. Most on hold messages don’t start at the beginning. Instead the message is constantly playing in a loop and the callers drop in and start listening at random points in the message. Because of this, it’s important that each sentence tells a whole story, and keep the words and sentences short and simple.

Keep Your On Hold Messages Informative and Dynamic

Having more than one voice on the recording adds depth and makes the time go even faster. Also, changing the music and the announcers when you change the recording helps regular callers know there’s a fresh message on hold playing. How often you change your on hold message depends on a variety of factors, including how often the same people call in, whether or not you’re adding or dropping services or items, if you’re getting sponsorships from your suppliers, if your business is affected by seasonal changes, and any events you want to promote. Share your menu, website, and other promotional information with your customers on hold. This will give them a feel for the culture of your establishment and a well written on hold script will help reenforce your other marketing efforts and promote your image. A good message will make mention of your Facebook page, Twitter feed, UrbanSpoon, Yelp, TripAdvisor and other places where you have a presence to get to know your establishment.

Choose the Right On Hold Message Provider

When you’re shopping for an on hold message provider, hire one that writes the script for you, uses professional announcers, and properly licensed music. Properly licensed music doesn’t carry any additional fees outside of your agreement with your on hold message provider. Generally properly-licensed music is produced by an artist or music studio, not a pop or rock star. The on hold provider buys the rights to use the music for an unlimited time in their productions. Even if you don’t have a fancy

telephone system, today’s technology can help you achieve a more professional and efficient telephone image. A good on hold message provider will be able to help you figure out what additional equipment or services, if any, are needed to get a customized on hold recording playing to your callers on hold. Generally speaking, on hold providers offer different levels of service for different prices. Most offer unlimited, monthly, quarterly, or single recordings. Some offer reminders to change the messages along with helpful seasonal suggestions. Prices for quarterly changes can be as low as $35 a month, while a single recording shouldn’t cost more than $300, including script writing, professional announcing, properly-licensed music and delivering your recording to you in a format you can use. Some providers offer a small charge to make minor changes to your “as needed” recording, instead of charging the single recording fee all over again. On hold messaging can be a great addition to your marketing program, increasing sales while at the same time letting your customers know their time is valued, even when they are put on hold. And if you choose the right on hold message provider, you won’t have to put a lot of time into creating your own custom on hold message.

RIVER DRIVERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RESTAURANT A fun dining experience, where a vibrant atmosphere and good food are the key elements.

Customer Focus

T

he River Driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant/ NEOC is nestled deep in the Maine woods boasting spectacular scenery including Millinocket Lake and Mount Katahdin. The business got its original start as a white water rafting company that provided food and accommodations to river guests in the Caratunk area of Maine. In 1998, the business was moved and the restaurant was opened at the base on the Millinocket campground along the Penobscot River. As the business continued to grow, Matthew saw opportunity and the need to have a restaurant where the guests were staying, in their full-service lakeside cabins, which brought them to their current location. When asked about one of their most memorable days in business, last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Millinocket Marathon came to mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vibe in the entire community was very upbeat and the runners and organizers were a tremendous group. To wind up the evening we had an ugly

sweater contest, and live music and the whole place was jamming. It was a fun evening and everyone was in very high spirits,” Ryan Zantor, bar tender. River Driver’s is well aware of their customer base demographics. The business draws good numbers in the summer from the southern part of the state, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York as well as locally from Millinocket to Bangor. The winter season also sees a crowd from the local area, when customers often arrive via snowmobile. “We are fortunate to have a strong and loyal local following so we are able to stay open year round,” Matthew Polstein. Digital and print media are used to promote the company’s events. The local paper has proven a

good tool when promoting what's happeneing. Facebook is utilized to target and help attract tourists that are in the area for events. A few example are weddings, corporate retreats, wine tastings, holiday buffets and many more. The location is somewhat remote, making signage very important for the comfort of guests who are not familiar with the location. Believe it or not, something as simple as two “open” flags at the top of their road had the biggest impact on foot traffic this past year than any other tactic. The biggest challenge today is staffing. Balancing the staffing needs with the seasonality of the business in a remote area is difficult. Fortunately, the busier seasons are May to October and January to March which offset the downtown business peaks.
