What is the best method to precook the meat (at approx. 80%) in the day time with our prep, so that when a customer orders later on, it is just tossed on the grill and ready within 5 minutes, without losing texture or flavor?
I'm the operator and line cook for a Mediterranean grill. We are opening a new location in a business district and it is crucial we reduce customer wait times. Especially for menu items such as pita wraps and souvlaki platters.
Many of our customers order chicken/beef/lamb/pork pitas and platters. It takes approximately 15 minutes to grill these items. This is causing our walk-in business to suffer. Customers want to drop by, order, receive their food within 5 minutes. When it takes us 15 minutes to cook their food, it doesn't make it feasible for someone to walk in on their lunch break and order from us.
Our food quality is not something we want to sacrifice, and at the same time, we want to enhance our customer experience by reducing wait times.
