  • Health – with the growing concern of healthy eating options, not just ‘diet’ foods, house-made dressings and condiments give customers an incentive to try your newest dish without worrying about the fat content and preservatives in the sauce.
  • Freshness – customers want to know their food is made with real, fresh ingredients. Making sauces in-house on a weekly basis makes a major difference in the the taste of your dish. If you have the space to plant a garden and grow your own ingredients, that is even better! With spring right around the corner, it is a great time to start planning your garden!
  • Uniqueness – when customers are dining out, they want to know they are paying for something they could not just pick up from the store. The sauce used can take an ordinary burger to a phenomenal burger and create regular customers – make sure you use the best of the best!
