Cavendish Clear Coat vs Fresh Cut

Cavendish Farms is a family food company that puts pride and dedication into everything they grow and make. Their varied product lines include clear coat, fine coat, and fresh cut fries; medallions; breakfast potatoes and more.

Cavendish is breaking down the advantages and benefits of both fresh cut and clear coat fries. Each option has low operating costs, consistent quality and taste, and the "crispy" factor—the #1 attribute of a great French fry.²

FreshCut

Restaurants that cut their own fries find that their costs are higher and the consistency of their fries are lower compared to restaurants that by a quality frozen product.

These are the top 10 reasons an operator drops hand-cut fries from their menu:

Too much labour 38%
Difficult to keep consistent flavour 34%
Takes too long to prepare 31%
Found a frozen product of quality 28%
Too much waste 14%
Too difficult 12%
Customers can't tell the difference 10%
Other 9%
Requires too much fridge space 9%
Too expensive 7%
