Foodbuy’s Culinary Solutions Team Helps Member Develop and Deploy New Breakfast Menu

Click Here to download a PDF of how the Culinary Solutions team helped this Member implement a new breakfast menu.

The Challenge:

Due to resource limitations caused by the impact of COVID-19, employees who had little experience in food and beverage were suddenly asked to take on prep and service responsibilities. Additionally, this Member implemented the immediate closure of self-service breakfast buffets, which had been the standard at many locations. As a result, the Member was looking for support in creating a cost-effective rotational breakfast program for their properties that was easy to replicate, easy to prepare, and provided hot and cold options for their guests.

The Solution:

Foodbuy’s Culinary Solutions Team was brought in to provide expertise and recommendations to assist this Member in creating a breakfast program to meet their needs. After a week of collaboration, the Foodbuy Culinary Solutions Team suggested a 4-day rotational breakfast meal plan that included one hot and one cold grab-and-go option, supplemented with fruit. They also provided access to a unique menu engineering tool that allowed for pricing to be updated on a regular basis to keep costs controlled.

The Results:

  • The Culinary Solutions Team created the new menu in less than a week once requirements were outlined.
  • The menu offered guidance on what products should be purchased for each day, and included product descriptions, numbers, costs per unit and product pairings for both food and disposable solutions.
  • The menu was rolled out to the Member’s entire property portfolio as the singular option for select serve hotels and as a menu supplement for full service properties.
