Cavendish Farms is a family food company that puts pride and dedication into everything they grow and make. Their varied product lines include clear coat, fine coat, and fresh cut fries; medallions; breakfast potatoes and more.
Cavendish is breaking down the advantages and benefits of both fresh cut and clear coat fries. Each option has low operating costs, consistent quality and taste, and the "crispy" factor—the #1 attribute of a great French fry.²
Restaurants that cut their own fries find that their costs are higher and the consistency of their fries are lower compared to restaurants that by a quality frozen product.
These are the top 10 reasons an operator drops hand-cut fries from their menu:
Too much labour - 38%
Difficult to keep consistent flavour - 34%
Takes too long to prepare - 31%
Found a frozen product of quality - 28%
Too much waste - 14%
Too difficult - 12%
Customers can't tell the difference - 10%
Other - 9%
Requires too much fridge space - 9%
Too expensive - 7%
