Dr. Potato, I was reading an earlier post, Looking At My French Fry Portions We Serve in Our Brew Pub, and I realized we were giving out double the portion size of Idaho® house-made fresh French Fries. What do we do now? I can’t go back to the smaller portion without potentially scaring customers away.
I understand completely. Without knowing the portion size, you have a couple of options… scale back the portion sizes slightly, 1-2 ounces, change the container they are served in and reduce the size, add another item on the plate as you change the portion (such as pre-portioned ketchup, fry sauce (for those of you in Idaho and Utah), or salsa. In the future, re-calculate the food costs when prices increase and adjust upward on the menu.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
