US Foods is launching a summer lineup of products that aims to help restaurants having labor challenges. The 18 products are designed to reduce back-of-house preparation and skilled-labor demands.
“Through each phase of the pandemic, our commitment to helping our restaurant operators ‘Make It’ with product innovation and expert resources has remained our number one priority,” said Stacey Kinkaid, vice president of product development and innovation for US Foods. “As restaurants quickly move closer to, or reach, full capacity, solving back-of-house labor challenges is more critical than ever. As a result, operators need products that are easy to prep back-of-house, require fewer culinary skills, and deliver on taste, quality, and profitability. With Summer Scoop, we’ve designed a product lineup to help restaurant operators meet these challenges head-on.”
The lineup features items including Chef’s Line Alabama White Barbeque Sauce, Chef’s Line Roasted Garlic & Herb Compound Butter, Cross Valley Farms Fresh Chopped Cilantro, and Monogram Tamper Evident Beverage Pouch.
In addition, US Foods is providing free one-on-one consultations with its expert Restaurant Operations Consultants to help restaurants with ongoing operations pain points such as menu engineering and profitability, staffing and labor, finance and cost management, and how to access restaurant relief grants.
