How are holding bins used?
- Holding bins allow operators to cook menu components in advance and then gently store that product in the holding bins until the order is received
- Once that order is placed, the crew will assemble that order using hot and fresh menu components from the holding bin
- Holding bins allow operators to serve to order, helping increase speed of service while maintaining high product quality standards
