The Ghost Kitchen Trend of 2021 

Living in the digital age definitely comes with a lot of perks, especially when it comes to foodservice and what’s known as the “ghost kitchen”. In the last five years, apps like GrubHub, UberEats, and DoorDash have taken over the food industry. Offering convenience by taking away the long lines and busy hustle of sitting in a restaurant waiting to order, these apps have provided a simple way to grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner without having to leave the comfort of your office or home. What more could you want?

😌Fulfillment 🚚

Do the unintended consequences of the supply chain disruptions have you constantly scratching your head, wondering how to proceed?

Due to loose fiscal policies, pent-up demand, and several other factors, trading up is trending up, further stressing an already overburdened system.

Staging and scheduling has had the complexities of uncertainty overlaid onto it.

As lead times expand and/or are opaque, you’ve needed to adapt to several new realities.  Flexibility is key to thriving in this environment, as it becomes increasingly difficult to manage logistics.As lead times expand and/or are opaque, you’ve needed to adapt to several new realities.  Flexibility is key to thriving in this environment, as it becomes increasingly difficult to manage logistics.

A note from:

LakesideGeneva
  1. Our current position on raw material S/S is strong.  Lakeside took advantage of inventory available early on.
     
  2. Only a couple of products are imported or would be affected by those current constraints.  The vast majority of our product is Milwaukee, WI, USA made. 
     
  3. We are seeing raw material prices going up.  There is strong indications of a price increase from Lakeside in the second half of 2021.

🌷 Life is for living 🌻

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments

Lighten up! Life’s too short. 

Take a lunch break out in the sun.  Grab a coffee with a friend.  Breathe some fresh air!

It’s high time that we get back to living as social creatures, reconnecting as humans.  The world is just not as serious as we’ve been led to believe it is.

Now that spring is in full-bloom, and life is being renewed all around us, let’s not ever waste it again.

Vow to rejoin the living; return to foodservice – the place where good things start.

🎸Restoring Rhythm

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments

The rhythms of foodservice supply have been temporarily disrupted. 

Normally, as March turns into April, the industry’s collective concentration would be directed at the school market, as well as the re-openings of seasonal businesses, and (not unimportantly) planning one’s own summer getaway.

The old routines may not be completely restored, but the healing effects of time, combined with human ingenuity will surely help us to reset our clocks.

With a raft of positive news finally emerging, we thought that a primer/refresher on some basics might be enlightening (and truly interesting as well) .  

Additionally, it has been been heartening to see the plethora of new products hit the market, just as it is primed to rebound.
