When we opened the storefront, everyone had something to say about how to fry our chicken.
Two other business owners and even a nationally-renown chef told us we should par-fry the chicken.
The problem with it is that par-frying increases the batching of work in process (WIP) enormously!
We gave them the benefit of the doubt at the beginning and gave it a try… only to find out that lean is right! Batching is bad!
