Some, mostly New Englanders, may think the first coffee shop was Dunkin Donuts in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1948. But really, coffee shops have been in existence since The Ottoman Empire. They began as an alternative to establishments only offering liquor, and quickly grew in popularity as a common meeting place. Today, this hasn't changed, and coffee shops can be found just about anywhere, filled with people getting together or making a quick stop to refuel.
Over time, the need for food options has only increased. Especially now, as people begin to return to the office. This means owners and operators must find ways to meet that need. Implementing a foodservice program that will satisfy their customers cravings, no matter the time of day, is a great way to create growth and expand your customer base.
In order to create a successful program, businesses need to arm themselves with the right tools for the job. Ventless kitchen equipment, like the AutoFry® or MultiChef©, gives coffee shops the ability to start serving food right away without having to install an expensive hood or vent system. Simply plug in either pieces of equipment and start cooking. So easy to use, any employee can operate them. There's no need to hire a professional cook! With the press of just a couple buttons, operators will have hot and delicious food to serve to their hungry patrons.
Whether it’s the breakfast basics like toasted bagels and deep-fried hash browns, or lunchtime favorites like grilled paninis and crispy fries, our fryers and ovens will not disappoint, and deliver on both consistency and flavor.
