How to Change Rink Food’s Reputation

How often have you heard parents tell their kids, “We’ll eat when we get home. Skating rink food isn’t healthy!”? Skating centers have a bad reputation when it comes to healthy snacks. Many parents see concession stands as nothing more than peddlers of greasy grub. But many operators are working hard to change the reputation of skating rink food.

How to Earn Your Snack Bar a Healthy Reputation

  1. Three boys eating pizzaMake an honest assessment. Nobody’s asking you to replace pizza and fries with kale salads (especially not the kids!), but it’s time to take stock of what comes out of your kitchen. Which meal options are healthy, which have potential, and which should you ditch? It’s time to take an honest look at your skating rink menu.
  2. Stick to what works. Do kids at your skating center love pizza and fries? Don’t let the grease scare you off. Scare the grease off instead! With a Quik n’ Crispy ventless fryer, you can prepare your best selling meals with 20% to 40% less fat and calories. Now that’s something to advertise.
  3. Add healthy sides. If parents are clamoring for a healthier snack bar menu, it pays to listen. But you don’t have to get rid of best-selling burgers to do it. Simply add healthy add-ons and sides. Fruit cups and applesauce are tasty, healthy side options for kids. Want something the adults will love, too? Pop breaded veggies into your ventless fryer and serve ‘em up hot.
