Would you like Shaun Mealy Category Manager Cheese is becoming increasingly used in the US. The amount of cheese consumed per year, per person continually increases each year. Right now the average American eats 32 lbs of cheese per year. Are you incorporating enough cheese in your menu? Are you properly advertising it? Could you pair it with other items and promote it more effectively? Did you know there are greater than 600 known compounds that contribute to our perception of the flavors in wine? What goes better with Cheese than Wine? But what about beer? The increasing use of micro brews and specialty beers increases the perception of uses and pairings that can be done. The lesser thought about beverage contains more than 700 such compounds originating from the malted barley, the hops and the fermentation process. The abundance of flavor attributes in beer can be perceived as ranging from smoky to fruity, floral to leathery, grassy to meaty, or any of a number of specific attributes such as butterscotch, chocolate, citrus or pepper. Given this vast array of flavors to marry up, creating pairings between beer and cheese is a relatively straightforward affair and can help to promote food items at your location. Pairings can be approached in several ways. A contrasting pairing for example could mean matching a rich, unctuous triple cream such as St. Andre or Delice de Bourgogne with a dry and sprightly pilsener or a tangy hefeweizen to create the necessary juxtaposition. Alternatively, a complimentary pairing might combine the nutty and dried fruit characters of an aged Parmigiano or Gruyère with the similar nutty and dried fruit character of a brown ale. A regional pairing might place a Stilton alongside a silky oatmeal stout or a Muenster with a Flemish red ale.

That is just one way to try a new approach to cross promoting items on your menu. There are many other ways to take advantage of the increasing popularity of cheese. Utilizing cheese boards and lesser known cheeses allows for higher margins to be gained.

With all of this being said, many may be worried about the large fluctuations in pricing of cheese. Well, China and the rest of the globe have relied on the U.S. as a primary dairy supplier, in fact in 2013, the US overtook New Zealand as the second largest cheese exporter behind the EU in the world. This change in the world economy is what is the driving force behind our record setting export values and cheese prices. Many analysts believe the new norm for the Block market is in the $1.80 average range, fearing that it could be some time (if ever) that we see a $1.40 block market again. This means that the pricing we see today is most likely going to stick around for longer than many 4

want. With this in mind, it does not mean stop using cheese, it just means that sooner than later you should reevaluate your menu prices and be sure to be incorporating the new cheese prices.

Just remember, “The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.” You don’t have to invent cheese to take advantage of it.

FUN CHEESE FACTS: • There are over 2,000 varieties of cheeses. • Remains of cheese have been found in Egyptian tombs over 4,000 years old. • In 1869, English Cheese makers Green’s of Glastonbury made and gave British Queen Victoria a wedding gift of a giant 1/2 ton Cheddar wheel. • The terms “Big Wheel” and “Big Cheese” originally referred to those who were wealthy enough to purchase a whole wheel of cheese. • What type of cheese is made backwards . . . . . . . . . . . .

Patti’s Pick Patti Sizemore Category Manager Take-out sales have continued to increase over the past several years and their growth is expected to continue. According to the National Restaurant Association, nine in ten family and casual dining operators and three-quarters of fine dining operators offer food for take-out . Take-out is an effective way for restaurants to increase sales. Studies show that more and more families with children are utilizing take-out to ease some of the stress that revolves around busy schedules and meal planning, so be ready. My picks are recently stocked items that can help you prepare.

CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT

Blue Dolphin Seafood Bar & Grill has been open for nearly five years. Co-Owner, Brian McCann credits their success to being located in a great neighborhood and having consistency in their products and the quality of those products. Brian and his wife, Karen are co-owners along with Pete and Penny Patiniotis. Pete’s father-inlaw, Mike Stavlas is the landlord of the property, and when the opportunity presented itself to Brian and Pete to open Blue Dolphin; they saw it as a great opportunity with someone that has a strong track record in the business. They do everything they can to create a great dining experience for everyone that walks through the restaurant doors. Brian said when he is in the restaurant, he makes it a point to go out and talk to the customers at their table, welcome them, and ask them about their experience. He said they also make sure to use quality ingredients to create great food, and that, combined with the experience is why customers continue coming back to the restaurant. Blue Dolphin often has aggressive specials to help draw in more customers. They also do half price appetizers during happy hour Monday through Friday, which attracts customers. Brian said their biggest struggle is building a solid core of good employees. He said they

have many great employees, but are always looking for more. And once you find a good employee, it’s important to do whatever you can to keep them happy! At Blue Dolphin, they have their main dining room which can seat around 400 people, but they also have a downstairs area with a separate kitchen where they do special events such as weddings, family reunions, and class reunions, which can seat around 250 people. Brian said on a Saturday they have about 1400 customers come through their restaurant! Brian used to work as a sales person in foodservice and said he’s not sure which side of the business he likes better, but that you just have to be passionate and love what you do. He also said it’s important to never forget where you come from and those people that have helped you along the way and that you have built relationships with. We asked if Blue Dolphin is engaged on social media. Brian said they are on Facebook, but it is an area that they need to expand and improve on. They do use Facebook to announce different events that are going on at the restaurant, but with the growing interest in social media, they want to look at becoming more involved. In talking about social media, he also mentioned that it is very important to handle all complaints seriously, especially now with the world of social media! Brian told us that he likes Performance Foodservice because of the consistency in product and great, on time deliveries. He said his sales rep, John Avara does a great job, and there are lots of other great people at Performance Foodservice that he knows have a lot of expertise in the business.

CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Scittino’s originally opened in 1972 when Frank and Tina Scittino started a small deli. Today, it is much more than that small deli and is owned and operated by Sal Scittino and Josie Schroeter, two of Frank and Tina’s children, who were always part of the business growing up. Sal said he and his sister just “grew into the business,” which has now been open for 42 years! About 35 years ago, the family purchased the building and has been expanding since then. When they first bought the building, they put in a small kitchen and started selling cooked foods. They got busy almost right away, decided to expand the kitchen, and continued to grow and get busier. People started ordering more of their homemade specials like Lasagna, for group gatherings and events, which led to the take-off of their catering business. They have become the place to go in the Catonsville area, for Italian Cold Cut Subs & Pizza. You can sample their homemade specials every day, including Pot Roast every Wednesday. According to Sal, “uniqueness,” an Italian

10

deli, grocery and a kitchen, all into one, has led to Scittino’s success. Everything is made from scratch. They make their own pizza dough, meatballs, and sausages and blend their own cheeses and sauces. The quality speaks for itself. Unusual and unique items abound in the grocery and deli area, products that you can’t get anywhere else. The deli has a wide variety of Italian meats, imported cheeses, fresh poultry, seafood and fresh cut Braveheart beef, pork and veal. Homemade sausage comes in 10 different varieties and is made in store every day from fresh pork butts. You can order freezer packs, cut to your specifications, wrapped and delivered to your home. Scittino’s is a very large Bacio customer. Sal said he liked Bacio right off the bat, “It stays white, cooks well and tastes great!” Since they started using it, pizza sales have gone straight up and Scittino’s has gotten the reputation of the best pizza in town! They have been written about in numerous newspapers and publications, and they have won many pizza contests. Sal explained that there are groups that do blind “Best Pizza in Town” type contests and they have won many times! They have the plaques hanging in the store for everyone to see. Sal tries to carry the best products he can find, again reminding us that he’s not always the cheapest, but he wants the best! He is looking for customers that want quality and appreciate the products. People come from areas other than Catonsville, because they know Scittino’s and have heard about the products they carry. Sal said he

He has gotten to know a lot of the people in the company, and he likes that they care about his needs! He said they are all good people, and they don’t lie to him. Scittino’s has customers that come in once a month or once business has a week to stock up, and he also has customers grown mostly who come in every day to eat!

Any time they bring their customers and the community. According to Josie, they try to give back to their community in a new product, Josie posts it on their Facebook by helping the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce page. If you’re looking to get into the business, with their endeavors raising funds for community Sal and Josie’s advice is “get good products and projects (4th of July parade and fireworks), and be consistent.” It’s a really hard business today, promoting local businesses.

The biggest struggle for Scittino’s, is build- a certain quality. You want to stay consistent with that quality and keep them happy,” said Sal. ing a good workforce. In his line of business, Sal encounters a lot of younger employees and the work ethic isn’t the same as it used to be. He said he has a good core of workers now, but sometimes you have employees that are difficult to train. Their training is established on a family tradition of operating procedures that have worked well for them. Sal has been working with Performance Foodservice Roma Carroll County for about 12 or 13 years. In the ten years that his current sales rep, Jim Eldridge has been with Performance Foodservice, Sal has been buying more from us.

CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT

What is now the Westwood Country Club was a 200 acre farm known as the Economy Dairy Farm in 1952. A local developer, Leon Horowitz bought the farm planning to build homes, but instead a golf course was created. In August 1954, Westbriar Country Club was opened. In 1962, the club was changed to Westwood Country Club and has since been developed into the property it is today with close to 600 members. We met with Jason Parker, who has been the executive chef at Westwood Country Club for 8 ½ years. Before coming to Westwood, he was the executive chef at a couple restaurants and another country club. We asked Jason what got him into the business and, like many, he started as a dishwasher at 16, moved to a line cook at 17 and had his first kitchen at 19. Jason went on to get a Culinary Associates Degree, and then a Bachelor’s Degree is Hospitality Management. Jason likes Westwood because of the history and that they are willing to grow. They have recently re-done the golf course, clubhouse and snack bar, and are always looking to improve. Jason said that they have a younger membership crowd, so the club is growing rather than dying like some others. In the kitchen, Jason said he has state of the art equipment to work with where he and his team make all of their own soups, stocks, dressings and sauces! Three dining rooms are run out of the Westwood kitchen with two different menus, a regular dining room menu as well as a pub menu. Jason tries to crossover items on the menu whenever he can. The perception of most country club chefs according to Jason is that they have all the money they need, food costs do not matter, and it’s easier. Jason dislikes this perception because he views his position

as having 500-600 bosses as opposed to just one and it’s his responsibility to please them all! He also said that he sometimes seems to get out of touch with the culinary trends because in his position, you get into a path of what works best with your members and do not always go for the up and coming trends. When we asked Jason why he and Westwood Country Club buy from Performance Foodservice Roma Carroll County, he said when he first started the prior chef was using us minimally. Jason got to know his sales representative, Greg Smith and also did some research on the company. He was intrigued that we are not a publically traded company. Jason has developed a great relationship and a system with Greg that works well. He likes that Performance Foodservice and Greg listen to him, what he needs and what he can do, and then they get it for him and the club without trying to upsell him something else. We are much more customer oriented according to Jason. Greg is very personable and does everything he can to help and make things work for Jason and Westwood Country Club. He said that Performance Foodservice is more worried about the number of cases on the truck than the case price, and he likes that too. Jason explained that the club does lots of weddings, banquets, parties and other events. The biggest difference for Westwood is that you do not have to be a member or sponsored by a member to have an event there. They can serve about 400 guests at a seated event or about 500 for a buffet event, and they have done cocktail parties for nearly 1,000 guests! Westwood also has a children’s center for members who need that available. A new adventure coming soon for Jason and the club is culinary classes for members! Jason will be giving the classes, but is still working out the details!
