You have built your business on your commitment to using high quality ingredients, and your customers can taste the difference. While certain ingredients require your time and attention, the sliced cheese that you use on your signature pie or sandwich doesn’t have to be one of them! Slicing your own cheese may be cutting into your profits with unnecessary labor costs and food waste.
In 2019, the U.S. saw an average wage increase of 3.4%, representing the largest wage increase since 2009. As states and cities across the U.S. continue to increase their minimum wage, it generates more concerns for restaurant operators already inundated by escalating expenses. In fact, 64% of operators agree that managing labor costs is a major challenge.*
In the kitchen, every second counts. A study conducted by Grande Cheese shows that it takes an average of 70 minutes to slice a case of cheese. Leveraging pre-sliced cheeses allows you and your kitchen staff to focus on creating the pizza and dishes your customers love.
Beyond managing labor costs, pre-sliced cheeses can also help reduce product waste and provide you with consistent portion control.
Not only does Grande provide a product you can count on day-in and day-out, we have recipe ideas to inspire your next new menu item.
When evaluating if pre-sliced cheese is right for your business, take into consideration the customer experience you want to provide and the back-of-house efficiencies you are looking to gain. We believe that you will find convenience without compromise in our sliced products.
