Logan Regional Foodservice Management project: Deep-fat fryer

Alessa Wade, Tanille Smith


BUSINESS CASE: Kaiser Permanente suggested that all deep-fat fryer and deep-fat fried products be removed from cafeterias within one year. However, given the size of LRH complete removal without an alternative replacement is not sustainable, we determined that LRH would need to maintain current sales while offering healthier meal options. If deep-fat fried products are removed, they should be replace with comparable products at similar prices.

DO Plan

Act Study

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Kaiser Permanente announced a new program committed to a healthier America. Their program is aimed at increasing healthier choices as a way to address obesity. One of the six steps recommended is to removed all fryers and deep fat fried products. Based on the Kaiser Permanente recommendations, our project was to evaluate different options to offer healthier food choices at LRH cafeteria.

ANALYSIS / ROOT CAUSE: Analyze sales volume attributing to deep fried foods and the impact to overall sales if fryers are removed and not replaced with an alternative.

CURRENT CONDITION: At Logan Regional Hospital’s cafeteria deep fat fried food accounts for 3.3% of their daily sales. We interviewed customers to understand current perception. Perception is positive as long as there is still access to the similar products.

TARGET CONDITION: To utilize Kaiser Permanente recommendation to promote healthier life styles by providing better food choices. To provide healthier food options at LRH cafeteria while maintaining sales. To support IHC’s mission of “excellence in the provision of healthcare services to communities in the Intermountain region”.

RECOMMENDATION / COUNTERMEASURES: To remove the cafeteria deep-fat fryer. Replace fryer with custom stainless steel tabletop. Move ingredient preparation area to the custom tabletop. Buy Miniveyor Conveyor Oven, put in old ingredient preparation area. Total estimated cost: $3,618

ACTION PLANS: If recommendations are approved, the LRH’s foodservice manager would work with equipment supplier to procure equipment. Construction timeline would be based on availability of equipment and labor to make change.

FOLLOW UP: To follow up a customer satisfaction survey would be administered. And analysis of sales comparing month 1 and month 5 after transition would be completed to evaluate the success of the project.
