Breakfast sandwich wait times

By Rachael Chanin February 13, 2012

Rachael here. This is my first post. You might have met me if you’ve eaten breakfast at the Harvard store. We’ve been working a lot on decreasing wait times in the morning. Something that I’m really proud of is the wait on breakfast sandwiches.

We boil eggs in small batches (2-12 at a time) and they take anywhere from 6 to 7 minutes depending on their size. The main problem we were having was when a lot of orders came in at once and we were left scrambling to boil more eggs.

A little trick that Rolando showed me a few weeks ago was to keep a pot of water right below a simmer. That way we spend less time waiting for the water to boil. If you’re by for breakfast, let us know how we’re doing.
