After tireless hours researching the layout and inventory of kitchens across America, Sauce On the Side has discovered that commercial kitchens are nothing like the galley in your house. As it turns out, restaurants are a business. Therefore, they do not have all of the strange delicacies that you make sure that you have on hand when you’re crafting the witches brew you call a meal at home. It is rumored that food cost is one of the major factors in this reasoning. The ramifications of this finding have yet to be fully realized. One thing, however, is certain: Many customers will be crestfallen to learn this.
Anyone eating brunch at a steakhouse who wants chocolate chips in their pancakes is going to be crestfallen to discover that they are not the only person in the world and that businesses cannot cater to every individual’s whim. Those expecting regular ranch from a restaurant that has made it a point to craft sauces and dressings that are not the generic offerings you can find in a grocery store, because flavor is something that you should have in your life, is going to be remiss when they find out that they have to try something new for once. It remains to be seen whether the findings of this study will have an impact on customer behavior.
