Why Restaurants Should Outsource Desserts

The best restaurants have palate-pleasing cuisines and deliver a memorable culinary experience. After the perfect meal, a restaurant can end the experience on an even higher note with an enticing dessert menu. Leaving a lasting impression on diners with an exquisite dessert will keep them coming back.

Outsourcing desserts offers benefits to your restaurant and frees up time. You can let your talented chefs focus on crafting your featured dishes while others provide perfect desserts that align with your brand.

Obstacles Restaurants Face When Preparing Desserts In-House

Adding pastry chefs and an in-house dessert line can hinder your restaurant’s profitability, increase labor costs, and decrease productivity. Finessing gourmet desserts takes time — your chefs will have more to do and can be stretched too thin.

Your restaurant will need a devoted space for a dessert line and a space to store the ingredients and finished plates separately, which can become costly. When busy, smaller kitchens get crowded and can obstruct restaurant operations. Since preparing premium sweets requires time and resources, outsourcing desserts will improve your restaurant’s efficiency and cut expenses.

The Art of Making High-Quality Desserts Requires Great Expertise

Premium sweets require skills that extend beyond standard baking and cooking. High-quality desserts require training and talent because the sophisticated craft of making high-end desserts combines art with science. Trained chefs know how to add delicate details, creative touches, and painting techniques, like airbrushing.

Low-Profit Margins

Freshly made desserts require costly ingredients, and some have a short shelf life. The most talented pastry chefs use at least five components in an average plate. Traditional desserts will feature mousse, dough, ganache, ice cream, and a garnish.

Production times vary based on the level of complexity and number of desserts needed. Preparing the menu items in-house creates longer ticket times in the kitchen. Leaving your guests waiting for their dessert will leave them dissatisfied.

Sharing Equipment

Sharing equipment with the rest of the kitchen staff, especially refrigerators and freezers, can create numerous problems. For most kitchens, it’s also the only way to add in-house premium desserts to the menu.

Cross-contamination is a major health concern in a fast-paced kitchen. Desserts made in-house require extra care. To prepare them, you’ll need ample space to prevent cross-contamination and stop other scents from affecting their quality. You’ll also need to take pains to track inventory properly, which is made more difficult in a shared area.
