Increase Food Sales and Profits with Sous Vide

Many things contribute to a successful food business. Location, atmosphere, menu development, pricing, branding, and service all play a role. Customers come to your establishment for a variety of reasons: convenience, necessity, curiosity, social gatherings, incentives, and loyalty.

With so many things influencing people’s experience and decision-making, it can be difficult to determine the best way to increase sales and profits. What exactly should you do to sell more brisket tacos, lamb chops, eggs benedicts, chicken wings or creme brulee?

When it comes to restaurants and food businesses, there are three fundamental ways to increase your profits:

Decisions you make in the kitchen can have a dramatic impact on customer satisfaction, the number of people you can serve during a given period, and how much profit you can make. Specific cooking techniques, such as sous vide, can give you an advantage in all of these areas.

Increasing your customer base with sous vide 

Happy, satisfied customers are the best way to grow your business. Customers who have a good experience are more likely to return, refer others, and share the experience. Their positive word-of-mouth can be a boon for your business.

Customer satisfaction may seem complicated but deep-down most customers want the same thing — a great experience. Even if someone is famished after a day of sightseeing and stops at the first place they find, they’re still hopeful that their experience will be a good one.

Sous Vide’s & the Sensory Experience

How we perceive an experience is directly tied to our senses, and precise cooking techniques, including sous vide, can strengthen the sensory connection.

Timing and temperature play a prominent role in amplifying and preserving sensory properties. Lower temperatures and slower cooking heighten the sensory experience making food more memorable and enjoyable. Cooking quickly, with high heat can damage or destroy some of the subtle properties that make food enjoyable.

The Sensory Experience with Sous Vide:

Improve Timing, Speed & Table Turn Ratios with Sous Vide

One of the most significant benefits of sous vide cooking is that it helps you prepare in advance. Food can be cooked to a precise temperature, chilled and held until needed. When the food is ordered, it’s a simple matter of bringing it back up to temperature in the sous vide immersion circulator, finishing it and plating it. A dish that would traditionally take 15-20 minutes to prepare may take less than five minutes.

Time is money in any business, and the more people you can serve in a given period, the more revenue potential. Sous vide can also help you increase banquet and group business by providing a streamlined process for getting a lot of plates out at once and ensuring their consistency.
