Restaurants are always trying to reduce operational expenses and when economic times are hard they often feel the need to reduce costs as much as possible to stay alive. Some suggestions in reducing costs are to examine profit and loss and the scrutinize food costs. Always Sharp can help reduce food waste by 30-40% and reduce loss by sharpening blades instead of replacing them which can result in savings of hundreds to thousands of dollars a year.
Restaurant food preparation and handling practices, worker health policies, and basics such as hand washing are factors that are often not reported during an outbreak, despite the fact that about half of the 48 million cases of foodborne illness that occur in the U.S. each year are associated with restaurants or delis, the CDC said. Always Sharp can help reduce potential foodborne illnesses by helping restaurant and food prep workers properly maintain and clean their slicing, dicing and cutting equipment.
