What Got Me Started In Baking Banana Bread

I have owned and operated our small family restaurant for over fifteen years now, while we are pretty successful and have a good defined direction, we didn't always have that. I'm writing this story to in a way explain how we got were we are at now, and that's where banana bread comes in.

We had been open running our restaurant for a few years and while we were getting by as far as sales and profitability there just seemed too be something missing that little extra umph or bling I guess you could say for a lack of other words to describe what makes people go out and broadcast to friends and family about their experiences at your restaurant. There are a lot of restaurants in the world some of them very successful a lot of them not, some of them have been around for a long time and more sad to say, that are just a flash in the pan, successful for a while then they just fizzle out quietly disappearing.

We had been baking bread for a our customers for a while, making small demi loaves of white and wheat bread to serve in place of the generic dinner rolls that most restaurants serve to their guest. This little extra that we did for our guest always seemed to go over pretty well it just wasn't what most of our guest saw as a wow moment in their dining experience with us. What made me realise the lack of enthusiasm on the guest's part was when we had interchanged dinner rolls instead of bread one week because we were having problems with our ovens and pretty much no one complained about it. That was a wake up call in itself, here we were spending all that extra time in labor and food cost baking fresh bread for our guest and basically they could have cared less.

So besides the wake up call with the roll incident what changed course for us was one day watching my wife bake banana bread at home a bell went off in my head telling me that she was doing something different something most people don't do at home any more probably because of the lack of time and knowledge. I know most people like banana bread and definitely my wife's banana bread, so I thought why not try it out at the restaurant offer it as a choice along with our white and wheat demi loaves of bread. Well needless to say it wasn't long before the banana bread surpassed all the other breads in being requested by our guess for their dinner choice. The banana bread was so well liked that customers were asking if they could purchase extra loaves to take home with them to enjoy later.

It wasn't to long after introducing the banana bread that we started adding other sweetbreads to the line up as far as offering to our guest for dinner. Peach bread was the second bread we brought on and the peach bread soon over took the banana bread in customer request, then after that apple bread and blueberry zucchini showed up with Pumpkin bread coming around during the holiday season.

Well we had finally found that bling we were looking for, so much so that we now sell as many if not more loaves of bread to customers just coming in to purchase bread as we do to our dinner guest. The same goes for our fresh made jam and jelly and also our fresh made pies, but that is another story.

In closing our fresh made sweetbreads have turned out to be wildly popular with our guest and I'm always happy to see our valued guest come in to enjoy them like they do.
