Bacon is one of the most loved and addictive foods in North America. Just a small amount of bacon is needed to add the flavor and crunch you need to totally rejuvenate your dishes (and command a higher price!) Offering bacon as an add-on to sandwiches and pizzas is a good way to bring in some extra dollars! Here’s just some of our ideas to bring enthusiasm back to your menu and boost those profit margins :
Marvelous bacon desserts
You can never fail with sweet and salty. Bacon not only allows you to achieve this effect but also enables you to reinvent your classics as well as innovate with new delicious menu items. Chocolate chips bacon cookies? Bacon donut holes? Bacon cinnamon rolls? You’ll never be out of new ideas and will tempt more than one customer to treat themselves to your brilliant bacony inventions. Guaranteed
Reinvent breakfast before the morning is over
Yeah yeah, we all know that bacon is the king of breakfast meats. What you don’t know is that it’s gone way beyond bacon ‘n eggs and bacon-related items are sprouting everywhere: chocolate covered bacon, bacon salt, bacon cupcakes and even baconnaise (bacon-flavoured mayonnaise)!
Bacon Sandwiches are all the bomb
The BLT sandwich, an old classic, has seen its menu incidences in menus grow consistently since 2011. Half of consumers agree that most sandwiches are better with bacon and many would be willing to spend extra to add bacon to it. Adding bacon as extras to your sandwich offerings might just be the next best way to make an extra buck !
Pizza’s best friend
Bacon is also Canada’s second favorite topping on pizza. It’s also perfect for your pizzeria’s higher end items.This suggests strong opportunities for additional revenues and you may want to consider offering bacon as an add-on topping if you don’t already.
Don’t underestimate packaging
If you use a great amount of bacon and a short prep time is essential to you, perhaps buying “lay out” bacon - bacon that’s already laid flat on parchment paper - can streamline your
operations because you can just throw it in the oven or flip it on the flat grill quickly. If you have more time for prep you can then benefit from the more economical “bulk” packaging in poly lining, and if shelf life is important to you than you might be interested by the new “gas flushed” packaging offered with some bacon styles. Making the best choice for your operation will save you an enormous amount of time. And you know it : who shall save an enormous amount of time shall make a considerable amount of money!
