With rising labor costs, increased food costs, and diner satisfaction top of mind, US Foods Holding Corp. has revealed an all-new launch set to bolster operators’ bottom lines. The distributor announced its Fall 2022 Scoop™, themed “Money Making Menus – Products Positioned for Profits.” The 22 innovative, labor-saving products included are expected to help increase menu profitability and retain and attract diners.
“Our Scoop strategy to bring operators innovative, labor-saving products that will inspire new menu ideas, align with current dining trends, and address evolving cost challenges has never been more important than it is right now,” said Stacey Kinkaid, Vice President of Product Development and Innovation. “The Fall Scoop lineup was developed by our culinary experts based on insights gathered from operators around the country, enabling us to deliver best-in-class products that help them overcome the most pressing challenges they face today. The unique flavor components and on-trend applications highlighted in Fall Scoop will encourage diners to spend a little more for customization and flavor exploration and create back-of-house cost savings to help boost the operator’s bottom line.”
According to a press release, upsell opportunities such as premium sides will satisfy diners, help increase check averages, and boost profits. Premium sides can reportedly garner a higher menu price by an average of $33. The Fall Scoop also includes customized swaps, especially ones that address dietary concerns. Driving a final check add-on with innovative and delicious desserts can provide a profit-driving boost. Additionally, products that are pre-prepped and ready to use or cook in minutes help maximize inventory, minimize labor hours, and reduce overall menu costs.
