Since 1981, Pizza Ranch has been expanding its legendary menu.
Today, customers enjoy pizza, salad and “The Country’s Best Chicken” — with the chain offering dine-in, carry out and delivery options for guests.
As part of Pizza Ranch’s in-house chicken preparation, stores were traditionally hand sifting, which led to significant breading waste.
Intrigued by the potential for savings, Pizza Ranch began testing AyrKing’s sifting table in one location — and, as a result, reduced breading waste by more than 40%, saving money and ingredients with every batch. The chain also reduced frying oil usage due to less excess breading in the fryer.
Pizza Ranch is currently retrofitting AyrKing’s sifting table into existing locations, with all new restaurants featuring the equipment going forward. The chain has also included AyrKing’s coating basket as part of its standard operating procedure.
