What is the difference between these groups? The answer lie in their noodles. Most successful noodle shops make their own noodles in house. Switching from purchasing ready-made noodles to house-made noodles can save shop owners a remarkable amount of money while also securing new customers who appreciate fine noodles.
Taste Far Better Than Factory-made Noodles
You can always use freshly made noodles for the dishes you serve. Also, your homemade noodles do not contain any preservatives. In addition, you can make noodles that go well with your soup flavours. These are three major reasons why noodle dishes made with homemade noodles taste better.
Safe and Healthy
In some cases, not all ingredient information about ready-made noodles may be disclosed by manufacturers. The noodles you purchase may contain preservatives that are bad for people’s health. Making noodles in house can eliminate the concern and earn your customers’ trust in what you serve at your shop.
Better Cost Performance
In Japan, current average purchase cost of noodles per serving is approximately 50 yen (0.63 U.S. dollars). It is probably higher overseas. In the case of homemade noodles, average cost per serving, including the cost such as labor, machine depreciation, utility, is about 20 to 30 yen (0.25 to 0.38 U.S. dollars). Depending on your sales, you may be able to recover the initial investment within a year after the opening of your shop.
Show Your Enthusiasm
By making noodles in house, you can show your enthusiasm for serving high quality noodles not only to your customers but to your employees. Yamato offers courses and seminars for Japanese noodle making, to which you can send your staff for training.
It is a current trend that noodle shops let people see their noodle making process at the shop front. The demonstration is interesting to watch and works effectively in attracting foot traffic into the shop. It is also a good way to show that you prepare the food based on food safety rules, which today’s consumers care about most.
To keep them fresh, mass-produced noodles contain preservatives. Further, noodles that are made in automated factories often lack maturation, which is an important step in the process that results in good taste and texture. Serving healthy and delicious noodles must be the first priority for any noodle specialty shop.
