I am looking for the following items…not sure if they are made, but maybe there are other solutions.
Fullsheet Baking Pan Grate: Want to use it to catch the cheese that does not go on the pizza
Halfsheet Baking Pan Grate: Same concept for when we do breadsticks so the extra butter drips off and not in the box
Chicken Wing Delivery Boxes: We use styro and I HATE IT…been doing it for 30 years and want another option. What do you guys use for WHOLE Jumbo Wings with Sauce on them.
If you know of a source…or have other solutions…let me know…
Can’t help you with the grates but we use small and large ‘cake’/sandwich/appetizers boxes for the wings. Just place a foil sheet right in the middle and put the wings inside, close the box and done. They’re a little bit more expensive than styro, but I REFUSE to use anything sytro.
Sweetheart (IIRC) makes a coated bucket. they ain’ty cheap. You may find them online,. I havea acatalog here in a drawer somewhere that has them . . . they are like $2 apiece, so we don’t buy them. Minimums were too high! Like 200 of them. Off course . . . lids sold separately.
also I am with patriots pizza, we put ours in an aluminum tin then we put that in a 10 inch box, we then cut little x in the top and put the ranch, cost is higher than styrofoam but presentation is off the chart in comparison
All of our to-go containers are compostable material. The wings and other hot apps go in compostable containers made of sugar cane fiber with a foil liner. Salads go in clear “plastic” containers made of compostable corn starch. “Plastic” flatware is also compostable cornstarch. In our recently closed slice location we used compostable cornstarch soft drink cups, lids and straws.
Pizza boxes are cardboard.
We recycle ALL incoming materials. Cardboard is flat and combined with other tenants in the center in a cardboard recycling program. All cans and jugs are rinsed and recycled in a multi-channel recyling program.
Does it cost a little more? Yes.
Is it the right thing to do? Yes.
We have received letters from customers thanking us for doing it and the employees are proud of it.
