How Did Chicago Metallic Help the World’s Largest Sub Sandwich Chain Improve Bun Texture and Increase Efficiency?
THE CHALLENGE: The world’s largest sub sandwich chain used silicone baguette baking mats with a half-size sheet pan to bake their bread in-store. The silicone mats were prone to sticking and needed to be washed after every bake. In addition, because they take a long time to dry, stores had to keep a large supply of extra mats on hand. Finally, the silicone mat could not provide the desired crusty texture.
THE SOLUTION: Chicago Metallic designed an NSF-approved, 5-pocket, half-size, perforated baguette pan with DuraShield coating. The custom pan is a great success:
