An independent bagel consultant was searching for a way to help independent bagel shops increase sales and check averages by offering sandwiches. Many bagel shops who try to serve sandwiches have trouble keeping sandwich components (eggs and sausage) fresh for extended periods of time. So to avoid serving poor sandwiches, they often have to waste unused food.
The consultant turned to Prince Castle Dedicated Holding Bins (DHBs) for help and installed one in a few concepts. By employing Prince Castle DHBs, they were able to extend the hold times of eggs, sausage patties, and bacon to 60 minutes. In addition, one particular chain was able to reduce its service time from three minutes to only one. Sales of sandwiches (and bagels) have increased 100% since the introduction of Prince Castle DHBs.
