Increase Profits with the Most Profitable Bar Foods

You already know that Quik n’ Crispy greaseless fryers will give your customers healthier, tastier options while being easier for your employees. But what about cost? Let’s talk profits! We’ve done a lot of research into this; check out the top 5 most profitable bar items you can cook with a Quik n’ Crispy.

  • onion rings and wingsCheese Sticks. Did you know customers in the US eat an average of 23 pounds of cheese per person, per year? And really, who can blame us? Cheese is delicious, especially when it’s encased in crispy, golden-brown breading. According to our research, you should be able to secure $1.73 in profit margin per serving of cheese sticks, which is a pretty tidy sum given the popularity of these appetizers.
  • Char-Broiled Hamburger. What’s more American than a burger? Try a $1.40 profit margin. And yes, the Quik n’ Crispy can grill burgers!
  • Chicken Patty Sandwich. Breaded chicken sandwiches are just better when they’re not oozing oil everywhere. You should be able to secure a $1.30 profit margin per sandwich!
  • Onion Rings. Nothing ruins a delicious, crispy onion ring faster than soggy breading and grease. Air fryers make that a thing of the past, so you can focus on the $1.25 profit margin per order.
  • Mini Corn Dogs. Not only are they delicious, they’re also adorable! They’re also profitable, bringing in about $1.20 per order.

3 Thanksgiving Marketing Ideas for Your Small Business

Can you believe it’s almost time for Thanksgiving? thanksBefore we know it we’ll be staring down the massive consumer holiday that is Black Friday. How can your small business get a piece of this spending pie and show your customers how much you appreciate them? Check out these suggestions for Thanksgiving marketing ideas from the folks here at Quik n’ Crispy!

  1. ‘Tis the season to be giving. Make it easier for your customers to give back to their community by hosting a canned food drive or a winter clothing drive, or sign up to be a Toys for Tots collection point. You can give back to them and encourage generosity by offering a small discount or coupon with each donation.
  2. What are the holidays without delicious treats? Promote holiday-related food items to get your customers into the spirit. Pumpkin spice is popular for a reason, but don’t limit yourself. Think warm, comforting foods with seasonal fruits and lots of gooey sweetness. And remember pumpkin spice is really just a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice, sometimes with clove as well. Experiment and see what you can do to spice up your menu. Remember that a greaseless fryer will help you do all this without the mess!
  3. And finally, why not throw a holiday party? Have music, decorations, holiday treats, and even a gift wrap station to thank your customers and liven things up for your employees. This is also a great time to have a holiday sale or offer coupons!

No matter how you choose to thank your customers, know that we at Quik n’ Crispy are thankful for you!

How to Cater Your Menu to Health-Conscious Customers

It’s hard to deny that our society is shifting towards healthier eating. How can your business cater to more health-conscious customers in your menu? Try these ideas: girl eating watermelon

  • First, keep your customers informed. Providing nutritional information, such as calorie counts, on your menu, or in an easily accessible place, will help people make choices that are right for them. This is also a great way to highlight the more healthful options you offer. Consider a special section of the menu dedicated to healthy eating.
  • Second, look at your options. Are you offering anything healthy? It’s hard to highlight what you don’t have! Options that are lower in calories, sugar, or carbohydrates are an easy place to start. Offer more fresh vegetables on your menu. Also consider vegetarian or vegan options. Not only do these tend to be healthier, but they also open your business up to the 7 million people in the US who eat a plant-based diet.
  • Finally, use a Quik n’ Crispy Greaseless Fryer to cut the grease, oil, and fat from your fried foods. Check out our menu for all the things you can make easier this way. Items like egg rolls, french fries, mozzarella sticks, and even pizza will be tastier and healthier than ever with an up to 30% reduction in calories.

Implementing menu changes isn’t always a snap, but with the Quik n’ Crispy fryers you’ll find it’s a lot easier. Plus, our customers agree that our greaseless fryers are well worth the investment! Contact us with questions and let’s get your business started on the healthy food plan.

Improving Nutrition in Schools

It’s no secret that good nutrition is important for children. They are growing and developing quickly, from their brains to their bodies, and need lots of nutritious fuel to help them grow strong. Since they can’t really fend for themselves, kids need someone to put attention and care into their diet. Children get a large portion of their meals at school during the school year; so how can schools help students access healthy foods?

Check out our menus to see all the delicious items you can prepare–including french fries, frozen pizzas, and other kid favorites. Cooking in one of our hot air fryers cuts the fat and calories in popular dishes by 20-40%! Even though kids need good fats to help absorb vitamins, the typical American diet exceeds the recommended fat requirements by quite a bit. Cutting unnecessary saturated fats will help keep kids healthier and performing better in school. 

One in three American children are over overweight or obese, and spending long hours at desks doesn’t help. On any given day, up to 30% of kids between the ages of 2 and 19 eats some kind of fast food! Kids can’t learn if they’re left feeling unsatisfied from unhealthy foods. Providing healthful options that are also tasty and appealing is a big step toward teaching kids better eating habits!

The Dangers You Didn’t Know About Your Deep Fat Fryer

deep fat fryerAs people become more health conscious, more businesses are replacing their deep fat fryers with Quik n’ Crispy ventless fryers. However, it’s not just healthier and safer for you; it’s a wise financial decision. On average, businesses save roughly $15,000 per year on labor, materials, and insurance.

With deep fat fryers, you have dangers to consider such as grease fires, hot oil burns, and foodborne illnesses.

Grease Fires

  • When your cooking oil becomes too hot, a grease fire may occur. First, your oil will start to boil, smoke, and then catch fire. If it’s a small fire, turn the heat off immediately and put a metal lid on the pot. The existing fire will use up all of the oxygen in the enclosed area and put itself out.

Hot Oil Burns

  • When oil reaches temperatures of 400°F or higher, it can cause burns if spilled. Often, hot oil will pop if it gets too hot, too fast. Because the oil can pop in any direction, it’s impossible to completely protect yourself.

Foodborne Illness

  • If there is not enough space in the fryer for the food to cook thoroughly, some food may not get cooked all the way through. If this occurs, bacteria are still present and can cause foodborne illnesses. It’s imperative that every piece of food in the fryer is cooked to the right temperature.

If you don’t want to worry about grease fires, burns, or foodborne illnesses, buy a Quik n’ Crispy greaseless fryer. Are you interested in learning more? Call QNC, Inc or check out the answers to our frequently asked questions.

QnC goes to Chicago!

At the end of May, the QnC crew got to spend four awesome days at the National Restaurant Association annual trade show in Chicago! We had a great time, and met some great people in the food service, restaurant, and hospitality industries. Here are some of the highlights from our trip!Wrigley Field

First of all, we loved Chicago! We were lucky enough to eat some great food, including a visit to Haray Caray’s, and also got to attend a Cub’s game at Wrigley Field! We’re all baseball fans, so going to such a beautiful, historic ballpark was a highlight for sure. The Cubs may have lost to the San Francisco Giants, but we still had a blast! 

We didn’t stop at Wrigley Field, though; in our walks around this awesome city, we went to see the Bean and the Navy Pier. We even liked riding the trains–and trust us, we spent a lot of time on the L. Other than the horn honking, sirens, and the night club party outside Paul’s room at 2 AM, we had nothing but fun. Actually, scratch that last bit. We’re sorry for your suffering, Paul, but the rest of us had fun the whole time! 

We’re especially excited by the contacts we made in the industry. We hope to soon get Quik n’ Crispy airless fryers into more restaurants and cafeterias so that more people can enjoy the benefits of fewer calories and more taste.
