Outsourcing in the Food Industry
Cost. Efficiency. Focus. Resources. Speed. All of these are benefits of outsourcing for any business. While they are great in theory, the idea behind giving up control over a part of your restaurant, farm or business is hard. You started your business because it is something you love doing. However, just like hiring in-house staff, at some point in order to continue to grow, you need to be able to hire the right help to handle part of your workload.
What to Outsource
Only you know what in your business you can realistically outsource. It doesn't take a consultant to tell you that you cannot outsource your cooks or service providers. However, many people don't realize you can outsource the production of your food and recipes.
Your business and the quality of the product you are giving your customers is important to you. Because of that, you may get into the mindset that you have to do everything yourself or be able to see your staff doing it. The truth is, you don't have to do it alone...and you really shouldn't. You can learn to work on your business, not just in it.
In the food industry, you more than likely will never hear "I don't need to grow my customer base". There is always room for growth. You may be limited in the ways you can grow. One option is doing it all yourself. Hiring and training staff. You may need additional space to expand with the growth. Your other option is hiring a co-packer who meets the local and state regulations, has trained staff available and is able to work with you to develop your product or recipe to your company's standards.
It all starts with a conversation. Contact us today so we can see if outsourcing with our company is right for your company.
