How Vulcan's CEF Fryer is Changing the Game for Captain D's

Fryers are one of the most important pieces of commercial cooking equipment for many restaurants. But all fryers aren’t created equal. Vulcan CEF Countertop Electric Fryers offer a long list of advantages, which many restaurants are using to easily and efficiently prepare a breadth and depth of popular menu items. 

An example of one establishment seeing the extraordinary benefits of the CEF Fryer? Captain D’s Seafood Kitchen. Here’s a closer look at this extraordinary piece of kitchen equipment and how it has helped transform back-of-house operations at Captain D’s.

About the CEF Fryer

With square footage a commodity in many restaurants, Vulcan’s CEF fryer presents a uniquely appealing option: It offers everything you know and love about Vulcan’s traditional electric floor model fryers but in a convenient and space-saving countertop design, lending itself to many unique applications.

Captain D’s and the CEF

A 500-plus-site seafood QSR chain restaurant, Captain D’s Seafood Kitchen turned to the Vulcan CEF Fryer to address a common issue faced by today's foodservice establishments: How to maximize productivity without sacrificing performance. The results have exceeded expectations. Captain D’s Vice President of Operations Integrations Larry Jones says, “Vulcan accepted [our frying] challenge and the result is a game changer.” 

Specifically, Jones reports better workflow and improved storage efficiencies in Captain D’s busy kitchen through their placement atop the refrigerated bases.

“Our last two new store openings have produced back-to-back record sales for our brand. The Vulcan CEF units are instrumental in those accomplishments," Jones concludes.
