Celebrate Lent with American Seafood
Serving seafood during Lent means big money for your business. In fact, several studies have shown that restaurants who offer seafood specials on Fridays during those 40 days can increase seafood sales by up to 20 percent. Since seafood items are already some of your higher dollar menu items, this is a good time to get creative with your menu and see serious results.

Performance Foodservice can help you provide the perfect experience. With our wide range of products and some creative ideas, we can take the stress out of the holiday.
Slim Down Your Menu After the Holidays
The holidays are over. Indulgence has been the theme for many of us. That extra serving of pie or stuffing that brought a smile to our face has now caused some of our pants to fit just a little tighter. For many of us, now is the time to look for lighter fare to satisfy our palate. Instead of excitement, most of us dread the thought. We relate eating healthy as a need or even a punishment, not a joy. There is no reason to feel this way! With some creativity and understanding, healthy can be something to be very excited about—dare I say joyous.
Big Wins for the Big Game
Game day will not be perfect without great food, close friends (old customers), new customers, and the newest tv. For those of us hosting the party, wings, ordinary chips and dip just will not cut it. Serving the same old food is like a fumble on the three yard line instead of scoring the winning touchdown.
