Grande Fumella might just deserve its own cheese category
Our Culinary Manager Felice Colucci breaks down why he thinks Grande Fumella is re-inventing smoked mozzarella.
Since consumers primarily choose their favorite pizza restaurant because it serves the best-tasting pizza,1 defining your pizza’s unique flavor profile (and making it consistently) is critical. Grande’s line of Italian Blends can help you enhance the flavor and consistency of your pizzas while saving you time and labor.
As you work to deliver a dining experience that keeps your customers craving more, high quality ingredients are a true differentiator. Consumers are seeking higher quality options than in the past and you already have an advantage as an independent operator – 81% of consumers seek out independents for the highest quality pizza.2 Let us help you deliver on this expectation!
Enjoy the convenience of pre-blended, diced and shredded cheese blends without the worry of anti-caking agents such as starch or cellulose negatively affecting the flavor or melt of the cheese on your pies. Grande’s Italian Blends are made from all natural ingredients and are free of additives, fillers and preservatives, ensuring that you will experience consistent melt, flavor and performance every time. Now this is an experience your customers are looking for. In fact, “natural” and “preservative/filler free” foods are the two most important claims to consumers.³
In addition to quality, flavor plays a critical role in crafting great-tasting pizza. Ninety-three percent of consumers consider truly great cheese to be an important component to a great pizza.1 Our team of flavor architects and food scientists have meticulously created five exclusive blends, each with a unique flavor profile.
Experiment with our blends to see which gives the flavor profile you are looking for or get ideas of trending toppings and pizza styles that pair best with our blends in our expansive recipe library.
Some chefs spend hours blending their own cheeses to create a signature flavor. We can save you the prep time and labor costs with our line of blends that have already been put to the test.
Managing food costs, minimizing food waste and minimizing labor/quick preparation are the top three operational goals for most pizza restaurants.1 If these are important to you, take advantage of Grande’s Italian Blends to bring the following benefits to your table:
