One of the challenges for the Jamix sales team is to help a potential customer realize the value, or ROI, of Jamix Kitchen Intelligence System. In many instances a potential customer will scroll to the *bottom line* of a quote, look at the figure and think, “I can’t afford that” (I’ve been guilty of this behavior). While the *bottom line* is important, understanding the value of the quote is equally important.
Here’s an example of context – assume a single kitchen operation…..if you were able to save time, save money and improve profitability, ensure the quality of your operations, further develop your business, and operate responsibly by promoting sustainability for the price of 1 entrée per day, would that be of interest? By looking at Jamix from an operational perspective, the real value becomes apparent.

Spring in the US Northeast is a love-hate relationship for me. I love the longer days, the above frozen temperatures, the return of songbirds, tulips, daffodils, and buds on trees. What I hate is that winter doesn’t give up easily, the wind out of the north keeps things chill, and for some inexplicable reason…fall leaves show up so that spring leaf collecting can commence.
The food of early spring almost always starts with ramps, mushrooms, asparagus, and tender lettuce. This is followed by peas, snow peas, rhubarb, spinach, baby beets, carrots, and radishes. And as spring warms we will have an abundance of berries.
One of my favorite dishes is roasted asparagus. It’s easy, quick, and roasting enhances the delicious natural flavor of the vegetable.
Ingredients – asparagus, extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, finely grated parmesan cheese.
Method – preheat oven to 425℉. Break off the bottom of the asparagus at its natural tender point (make a soup from the ends). Place the asparagus spears on a baking sheet, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, season with kosher salt & pepper, and lightly sprinkle with parmesan. Roast for 6-10 minutes until just tender.
