An increasing number of foodservice operations now take advantage of freshly squeezed juice on its own or as part of a breakfast, specialty beverage, cocktail or smoothie program due to the potentially high profit margins offered by these on-trend products. For this reason, commercial juicers are becoming more commonplace not only in quick- and casual-service restaurants but also in higher-end establishments with upscale bar menus. Operators can choose from various commercial juicing equipment, depending on their needs.
When choosing a juicer, anticipating volume is critical. Operators can choose from a variety of juicers, depending on the application, speed of service needed and beverage type being created. Operators also need to determine what type of foods they will use as some juicers handle leafy greens and vegetables better than others.
