“We had many reasons! We needed to protect our recipe, our sauce was inconsistent, and we wanted our employees to have a safer workplace.
Protecting the recipe – Since our employees made our sauce, our recipe was accessible to anyone within our organization. There was nothing that prevented an employee from starting up their own pizzeria while using our recipes and we could not afford to continue to train our competition.
Sauce Consistency – If you have one location and you are the only person who makes the sauce, you will likely be able to control the consistency of your sauce. When you have multiple locations with multiple humans making the same sauce, it is virtually impossible to ensure that your sauce is consistent from location to location, batch to batch.
Safety – Our business had multiple workers comp claims each year from cuts on sauce cans. We were able to eliminate these claims by eliminating the can. When we did this, we were able to reduce our workers comp insurance premiums.”
“Needed consistency from store to store.”
“Our sauce is such a high profile sauce, we needed to ensure its consistency from location to location, batch to batch.”
“Consistency and efficiency.”
“We had very crude methods for making our sauce & were reluctant to buy new equipment in each restaurant.”
“When we met your team back in 1995, we had known that there were inconsistencies in our sauce and believed that it is unavoidable due to the ‘human element.’ Once we found out about your program, we knew that it was something that we needed to pursue.”
