Today’s non-commercial foodservice operators need every convenience they can find. Take a look at three benefits that Idahoan® fresh-dried potato products bring to the table in non-commercial kitchens.
1: Labor Saving
As vaccination rates increase, restrictions are lifted, and masks begin to come off, many non-commercial foodservice operators are continuing to feel the effects of labor shortages, making it difficult for operators to keep their kitchens fully staffed. Now more than ever, operators are in need of ingredients and dishes that are efficient to make with a small staff. Idahoan® fresh-dried potato products make it easy for operators to deliver the taste and nutrition that customers need in a few short minutes, helping to reduce the amount of time and labor needed to perfect each dish. With fewer staff onsite, ingredients like Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes can be made ahead of time, refrigerated for up to three days, and used to create a variety of dips, sides, and entrees therein reducing the amount of labor needed over multi-day periods.
2: A Nutritious Ingredient
Whether they’re feeding students, patients, guests, or residents, non-commercial operators need nutritious ingredients to fuel their crowds. Packed with vitamins and minerals, 100% REAL Idaho Potatoes are the perfect base to a well-rounded meal. A single serving of potatoes delivers:
- 3 grams of complete protein, more than almost any other commonly consumed vegetable
- 30% of the recommended daily value for Vitamin C
- 15% of the recommended daily value for Potassium
- 26 grams of high-quality carbohydrates
Even better, Idahoan® fresh-dried potato products pack the same nutrient-dense punch as a fresh potato, helping to keep customers satisfied and feeling good with a fraction of the prep work.
3: Versatile & Customizable
Idahoan® Mashed Potato products offer the natural taste and texture of mashed potatoes and tater appetizers made from scratch while meeting the demands of today’s short-staffed kitchens. Buy them smooth and creamy, buttered and seasoned, or even with real lumps and peels to ensure that you’re delivering the best quality, flavor, and nutrition to your customers. With different flavors and endless possibilities for toppings and mix-ins, Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes are not only a canvas for creativity, but a mealtime staple craved by all. The versatility of products such as Idahoan Buttery Homestyle® Mashed Potatoes provides operators with endless combinations during breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a fraction of the time. Even better, Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes can be prepared in just a few minutes, allowing non-commercial kitchens to offer high quality meals without risk of overextending their limited staff.
Versatile, high-quality ingredients like Idahoan® Mashed Potatoes help non-commercial operators to overcome the challenges that today’s labor shortages present while continuing to offer customers the craveable and nutritious meals they’re looking for.
