Why Buy Prep?

 

Today’s chefs face many challenges. Kitchen areas are often small and cramped to maximise table areas. Labour costs are always rising, which is putting more pressure on kitchens bottom line. In the meantime, consumers are more discerning if not more demanding: they know they are paying much more than the mere food costs and they want value for money so hearty food, innovative menu, good ambience and friendly service are essential to survive in today’s competitive market.

This is why we believe buying prep is the way to go ahead:

Saves

Time

Buying Prep saves time. Labour cost is rising every year especially with the introduction of national living wage. A junior kitchen staff costs a restaurant about £7.5 per hour at current rate. So, to make 20 kilos of ready-to-fry chips in house, a restaurant must pay:

Labour:  £7.5*1=£7.5 
Material: £12.40
(25 kilos of raw potatoes)

Total: £7.5+£12.4=£19.9 

In comparison, it costs £15.5 to buy 20 kilos of ready-to-fry chips: a massive 22.1% cost saving!
