Los Angeles Hood Cleaning Company Says Higher Restaurant Spending Trend Could Mean More Frequent Hood Cleanings
March 18, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsPLACENTIA AND LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA- If the recent prediction of more customer spending at restaurants in the next three months proves to be true, numerous restaurants should consider whether they are having their commercial vent hood in their restaurants cleaned frequently enough, says one Los Angeles hood cleaning expert.
In February, Restaurant News reported that an RBC Capital Markets consumer survey showed more survey participants indicated they plan to spend more money at restaurants over the next three months.
In January, 13 percent of those who were surveyed indicated they planned to spend more, while 14 percent said the same thing in February, the Restaurant News article stated. This current figure is 7 percent higher than survey respondents indicated last year at the same time.
"An increase in cooking volume in a commercial kitchen often means more frequent hood cleanings are needed to keep grease from accumulating," says Massoud Farazandeh, CEO of American Professional Services (APS-Hoods), a Los Angeles hood installation company.
Because of increased food costs, fast food restaurants such as Sonic and McDonald's are projected to see the greatest sales increases because of pricing power and other factors, said RBC analyst Larry Miller.
"These types of restaurants use lots of oils in their cooking process because they offer fried foods such as French fries, chicken nuggets and apple pies," said Farazandeh, a Los Angeles hood sale expert.
As a rule of thumb, restaurants with smokehouses or wood fires should clean their systems monthly. Dining establishments that use charbroilers, deep fat fryers or high volumes of vegetable oils should have these systems cleaned at least every three months, said the Los Angeles vent hood professional.
When vegetable oil grease is left to build up, it becomes "glue-like" and removing it is a difficult task.
