Their business is simply to serve and sell us as many items from their food and drink menus in an atmosphere where we can relax and enjoy. It is true though that many of these restaurants have worked hard to develop their own signature recipes techniques and themes to set themselves apart. They spend millions on advertising their uniqueness to keep bringing customers back for more. The restaurant business is a huge business and very competitive. How big is the restaurant industry in the U.S.? According to the National Restaurant Association it is estimated the industry to reach $604 billion dollars in sales for 2011. That is $1.7 billion on a typical day. There are 960000 locations nationwide that employee approximately 12.8 million people and get this of the dollars spent on food in the U.S. 49% is shared with the restaurant industry. I dont know about you but that is some serious cabbage.
Some may even look to make improvements on the original. It can be for other reasons like notoriety or personal challenge for pride and maybe even some kicks. Think about this comedians can get more laughs if they are good at imitating some one else right? If they are really good at it this helps bring more people to their show. Just as is done with so many other things that are made there is always a group of these interested individuals that like to do things themselves. These people will go out of their way to copy favorite recipes from all of these restaurants. I would venture to say that if one were to interview many of these DIY (Do It Yourself) people it would be primarily in an effort to be able to save money as a main reason initially.
So the journey began in search of restaurant recipes. Most restaurants do not give out their recipes and why would they? They might lose a return customer if they did. I do see some restaurants that are selling some of their menu items in the grocery stores more than before but sort of limiting it to just a few items. I have also read about a person that would ask the cooks for their recipes and how some might spill the beans once in awhile but again fairly limited results. I remember one time my wife and I were at a Dennys restaurant late one night and how much we enjoyed their marinara sauce used with the mozzarella sticks we had ordered. We asked the waitress about it and she did check with the cooks on that but they really didnt know much about it and we thank her for trying.
