Y’all just don’t know how excited I am. That’s right; I am excited enough to break out the “y’all” and if you knew this frog at all, you’d know that is a pretty big deal. So what has my restaurant equipment loving heart all aflutter? Well, this: We happen to have come across a pretty… Read More

One Fat Joke
We here at One Fat Frog LOVE practical jokes and funny stories almost as much as we love restaurant equipment. And we seriously love restaurant equipment – Shelia, anyone? It’s part of what makes us a family. And when you guys can be included in those jokes, you are a part of our family, too!… Read More
Congratulations to the first female to get her Certified Culinarian certification in the US Virgin Islands!
I rolled into work this morning, sat down in my comfy chair (that is very similar to the chair I stole from Mr. Winkle), opened my email and was met with great news! As you may know, Chef Jeff Rotz, who instructs the ServSafe classes at One Fat Frog, travels around the world to help… Read More
The business of business plans
Business plans are long. And lengthy. And should really take you a while to make. But what is a business plan? A business plan usually plans and outlines the projected losses and earnings for 2-4 years. But if you’re anything like me, business plans probably look like the last thing you want to sit down… Read More

New Inventory on Restaurant Equipment – by the truckloads!
I’ve taken note this week of just how many trucks we’ve been taking in and sending out. I won’t lie – I lost count. We have had instances where there have been big trucks playing chicken in our parking lot trying to get their truck in first. I’m glad our drivers are so skilled because… Read More

General Contractors: What You Should Know
I have talked briefly before about whether or not you should get a general contractor. Okay, maybe more than briefly since I wrote two blogs about it. But the decision of whether or not to get a general contractor is a big one. Let’s talk again about what a general contractor does. General contractors are… Read More
Dear sir who came in today in your salmon colored shirt,
I’m smitten. I hope you remember me. I don’t know how you could forget. We shared a moment when you asked me who did my hair (you particularly enjoyed the shade of turquoise I’m sporting this week). I laughed and told you I did it myself. You seemed impressed. I took this as an opportunity… Read More

Seasonal menus – Creating a menu to fit your geographical needs
I don’t know about you, but when it’s cold, this frog likes to curl up and drink a nice hot tea or eat a bowl of chili or soup. I also know that this frog is a little too lazy to make chili or soup from scratch, so I’m always looking for some restaurant to fill… Read More
Apparently, there are a lot of people on the internet who think a sandwich of any kind is a “homemade subway”. And I have proof! (This picture links to a real life tweet about it!) This frog found this Buzzfeed article. And anyone who is anyone knows that Buzzfeed is totally legit. Okay, sometimes it’s… Read More
Front of the House: a Definition
There are two types of jobs in a restaurant: front of the house, and back of the house. Front of the house jobs are jobs that involve interacting with your customer or guest, from the time they walk through your door of your restaurant to the time they leave your restaurant, bar, or commercial kitchen.… Read More
Secret Menu: a Marketing Technique
Can I talk about something I love more than food trucks? (And I really love food trucks, so this says a lot.) How about COFFEE? Who doesn’t love a nice hot cup of coffee? Especially on a day like today where the weather is nippy and everyone is bundled together trying to get warm? Well,… Read More
How do Franchises work?
Okay, this frog is a sucker for stick figures. Don’t judge me. Something about a stick figure reminds me that even though whoever made the video may have a deeper understanding of the topic, they still can’t draw to save their life and that makes me happy because I can’t either. There is something to be said about being… Read More
Franchises – Did you know?
It’s very interesting being a frog. I find out a lot of things working in this industry, but one of the most surprising things for me was just how many of my favorite chain restaurants are actually franchise restaurants! And not only that, but it takes a lot of money to open a franchise restaurant.… Read More
