Ideas for Your Menu!
One of the greatest ways for a restaurant to build a strong brand is with the items on their menu. That is why Fresh Avenue has a free downloadable guide to jump start the inspiration on new ways to incorporate produce into your menu– but this is only a sample of what we can do!
Stop Prepping Your Veggies
Fresh prepared produce delivers many benefits to foodservice operations from cost and labor savings along with increasing back of house efficiency, food safety, and freshness. With everything that has happened with the pandemic and the new ways restaurants are operating, not prepping your produce is incredibly relevant to foodservice’s post-pandemic plan of action.
Improve Your Business Through Transportation
When it comes to transporting fresh food items two things, process and people, are critical to ensure products with a limited shelf life and require refrigeration arrive fresh, safe, and of great quality for the consumer. This is something our team has learned over the years working in food operations and logistics.
