Foodservice is continuing to play a larger roll in convenience store growth. In the last few years, it has become apparent to owners and operators that customers are stopping at C-Stores for more than fueling up their vehicles, they are also looking to fuel themselves. One item in particular can be reimagined in different ways to expand foodservice programs while protecting the business’ bottom line.
Fried chicken is not only delicious, but versatile. This crispy creation can be used in a number of menu items. No matter the time of day, there are ways to incorporate fried chicken into your foodservice program. From the morning rush to the 5pm commute, you can create something for every hungry patron who walks through the doors.
So, exactly what kind of menu items can be created with fried chicken? Well, let’s start with breakfast. A quick and easy option is a Chicken Biscuit Sandwich. This handheld beauty can be topped with hot sauce or honey and served up with a side of hashbrown bites. Now, how about lunch? Nothing like a southwest salad loaded with breaded chicken, black beans, and sweet corn on top of a bed of mixed greens. Then bring it all together with a chipotle ranch dressing that is sure to be a hit! Lastly, we have the dinner menu. Nothing says dinner on the go like a deep-fried chicken sandwich. The possibilities are endless with this one. Add fresh avocado slices for a California twist, or load it up with buffalo sauce and blue cheese for customers who can really handle the heat.
Creating these menu masterpieces doesn’t have to be difficult, especially with the right tools. Ventless deep fryers like the AutoFry make frying chicken easy.
