What is Broaster? Part 3
Creator of marketable, high-quality food programs
Broaster Company understands it takes more than great food to build a successful foodservice business. Success hinges on quality, consistency and operational efficiency.
“Our objective is to provide a complete turnkey solution to help meet a particular operator’s needs,” says Greg West, Broaster Company’s senior vice president of marketing and food innovation. “Our turnkey solutions are particularly well-suited to those looking to add a high-quality hot food menu platform to an existing restaurant, convenience store, grocery store, food truck, snack shop, etc.”
Years ago, being in the fried chicken business meant offering that classic 8-piece, bone-in chicken product. Today, a chicken menu can also include wings, tenders, nuggets and sandwiches, along with a focused scope of popular sides like biscuits, mac-n-cheese and potato wedges. All of these items fall under the flagship Genuine Broaster Chicken brand that is geared toward restaurants. Considering all of the chicken types, not to mention the various rubs and marinades and sauces, a restaurant can add a diverse chicken offering to its menu quite efficiently.
As part of the GBC program, an operator can choose a Broaster Equipment pressure fryer based on the volume of chicken they anticipate producing. Accessory equipment such as prep stations, hold cabinets and dump tables are also part of the program, as are a variety of carryout packaging and point-of-sale merchandising systems.
This program is similar to the GBC program, but is tailored toward the convenience store channel where kitchen space is often limited. While larger operations can choose a higher-capacity Broaster Equipment pressure fryer, many convenience stores opt for a tabletop ventless fryer. Merchandising systems are also tailored toward convenience stores.
Rock County Smokehouse.
This is Broaster Company’s turnkey solution that allows operators to get into the BBQ business. At the heart of this program is the company’s innovative Smokaroma that pressure-cooks and wood-smokes a variety of meats in a fraction of the time of traditional slow-cooking methods. Rock County Smokehouse also leverages a collection of unique rubs and sauces to create a one-of-a-kind BBQ offering. Merchandising tools and apparel are also part of the program, as well as additional advertising and training support.
All the support without all the extra costs
With all of these branded, turnkey food programs from Broaster Company, operators reap all the benefits of a traditional franchising operation — without having to pay all of those typical franchising fees like annual renewals and royalty fees.
To capitalize on one of Broaster Company’s trademarked food programs, operators just need to adhere to some basic policies in order to maintain product quality and brand integrity in their respective markets:
- Utilize the appropriate Broaster Equipment tied to the program
- Utilize the proprietary Broaster Foods components
- Utilize the appropriate merchandising equipment, packaging and signage
Pretty simple, really. And besides, these programs have been carefully developed to set operators up for quick and lasting success in the foodservice business.
