Reinvent Your Continental Breakfast

October 4th 2015

Improving Your Breakfast

Breakfast in America is an essential part of any guest's morning. For many, breakfast reenergizes the body and sets the tone for the day. How you display and present your sit-down or buffet style breakfast is key to improving your customer's perception of your establishment. Free or not, guest's do not want soggy eggs and stale bagels. If you're going to offer a continental breakfast, start with offering fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, toast, and beverage options! With many hotels and motels only offering "grab n' go" breakfast with muffins, fruit, and cereal, your establishment can easily stand out from the crowd with a little added effort. Have the kitchen equipment and space? Offer a freemium service for guest's that want more than the traditional options. Most guests will be willing to pay for a simple breakfast meal, made to order. Here are a few items that can update the look of your continental breakfast displays and buffets!

Tips for Breakfast Success

You've upgraded to the latest food service equipment, chafers, dispensers, and buffet displays. Now what? Establish an identity for your continental breakfast. It's good to have many options for the simple grab n' go snacks and fruit, however make an effort to be really good at 1 or 2 dishes. These selections can represent the local and regional foods, time of season, and personality of the hotel. For example breakfast burritos, gourmet meats and cheese, sandwiches, and even omelets can become welcomed additions. See below for more suggestions!
  • Keep Food Fresh
  • Update to commercial food service equipment
  • Include more "Do it Yourself" options so food is fresh, warm, and more satisfying!
  • Make sure coffee is brewed correctly, stored in an airpot, and constantly refilled
  • Listen to your customer's wants and needs and adapt based on feedback
