Surf’n’Fries self-service fries as a game changer in the QSR segment

first_imgThe first such automated machine for making potatoes in the world has already been set up on the beach in Crikvenica, and in just 35 seconds it will throw out fresh and hot potatoes with sauce. The whole story is only in the test phase, and yet it is the result of many years of thinking and working. But that’s just the beginning of the story.  The Surf’n’Fries Vending machine opens up a totally new business perspective and a new market, as well as a phenomenal extension of the Surf’n’Fries brand. The possibilities are really wide, and the market is all over the world. I have no doubt at all about the success of Čolak’s new business venture, which has so far more than successfully proved that in spite of everything it is possible to make a globally competitive product and tourist export product in Croatia through a franchise model, which is a huge success. It is worth mentioning that Čolak was the co-founder of the world’s first smart umbrella Kisha, also a Croatian product, and that a year ago he opened the first franchise consulting agency – CFCG. And Čolak is also responsible for the Croatian application for booking nautical berths – PortHop. However, as much as some ideas, ie solutions, seemed logical and natural to us, in their simplicity lies their genius, and behind which stand hours and hours of creative thinking, trial and error… but persistence still paid off. Namely, this year the third franchise of Surf’n’Fries was opened in Egypt. Interestingly, Egypt is among the world’s largest exporters of potatoes. According to the data OEC, Egypt with over $ 300 million in exports ranks 4th in the world ranking of the largest exporters of potatoes. A similar paradox can be stated that some counties in Slavonia boast that they brought a company from Israel to learn how to irrigate Slavonia, instead of the other way around. Kudos to the Israelis for making “Slavonia” out of the desert and exporting products, but when we talk about exporting knowledge, then Slavonia should sell know-how in the context of irrigation for agricultural purposes to Israelis, and not the other way around. While the Israelites made Slavonia out of the desert, we made Slavonia a desert. An interesting parallel, isn’t it? Čolak and Surf n Fries are certainly the pioneers of the franchise model in Croatia, especially in the * QSR segment (quick service restaurant franchise ). As Colak himself concludes, that was crucial. “If we didn’t have that innovation as a business franchise model we probably wouldn’t even come close to a new product today and the question of whether we would exist as a Surf n Fries brand”Concludes Čolak. But that’s a different story. Let’s go back to Colak and his new innovation and product – Surf’n’Fries the first automated machine for making and selling fries When you sell fries, sauces, juice the imperative arises and the question is how to put all three things in one hand? And there has also been a new innovation in packaging i.e. Surf n Fries packaging. By the way, the whole story is a Croatian product, which is an added value and proof that it is possible to make global competitors products and innovations in Croatia, in spite of everything. How to make an innovation when it comes to fries?  Of course, everything is currently in the test phase, and later more options will be added according to the plan, from more sauce options even to the production of fresh breaded chicken medallions. Of course, fries are just the beginning of the story, and to this day, Surf’n’Fries offers a much wider and richer offer, as well as three types of business franchise models. After all, if you haven’t by now, be sure to get acquainted with the story of the global brand Surf’n’Fries. Another interesting fact is that Čolak also sells his fries in Egypt, one of the world’s largest exporters of potatoes. 12 years ago, a successful story about the development of the Surf’n’Fries brand, with an emphasis on the global brand, started from Rijeka and a small restaurant of a little more than 25 m2. Today, Surf’n’Fries fries are sold through franchise models in over 20 countries with hundreds of partners. “Everything is still in the testing phase and we follow every step of how it works because there are a lot of challenges that we have to solve. The device is currently being tested on Monty’s Dog beach in Crikvenica, and will later be installed at the Zagreb railway station and in a shopping center. The biggest advantage is that it works 0/24 so the best locations will be the ones that are open 24 hours. This is a very challenging mechanic, because making french fries within 35 seconds is very difficult to achieve. Also, we have to make sure that the whole complex process works properly, that the french fries do not header, that it withstands all external conditions, etc.… Also, there is our software that is connected to the internet, which allows us to see remotely or from the office all key information. Is it full, empty, something needs to be filled or something is not working, etc.… ” says Colak. Following the global story of the Surf’n’Fries brand, the whole story expands to automated Vending machine for making and selling potatoes. (Vending machine or vending machine. I honestly don’t know how to translate exactly into Croatian, maybe an automated machine that sells food, drinks or cigarettes when a coin, banknote or token is inserted into it) “We have been working on this for three years because there is a big trend in the world of kitchen automation, both due to labor problems and due to the automation of the whole process. We recognized this and of course took everything to a higher level, so we set out to fully automate our entire process. We are looking for a solution to create a “vending machine” that does not require any employees”Points out Colak. And that brings us to an interesting fact or rather a paradox. While we import potatoes from Egypt and other countries, according to the data of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, in 2018 the import of potatoes increased by 50%, Čolak exports Surf n Fries potatoes. All in One / French fries, sauces, juice and breaded chicken medallions or chicken nuggets This example reminds me, although they are not connected in the same way and it is about other industries, of one of the great achievements of Dr. Davor Pavuna who for the Swedish company Tetra Pak doo thinned the aluminum on the packaging by one micron and thus made the company millions in annual savings. packaging production. The very initial vision to launch a globally successful franchise from Croatia is admirable, let alone realized. The story of Surf’n’Fries can be divided through two key phases: Idea and innovation and perseverance and effort. The packaging itself is a top solution at the global level in the context of “on the go” food packaging. The All in One solution made it possible to hold french fries, sauces, juice and breaded chicken medallions or chicken nuggets in one hand, while with the other hand we can eat in peace, while still on the move. Also, an innovative solution from Čolak’s workshop. In fact, these are four innovations from Čolak’s laboratory. As I stated: fries, packaging, now also vending manchine, and we should definitely emphasize the innovation through the franchise business model, which was not bought or copied, but the result of Čolak and his team. At first, an impossible mission, but Andrija Čolak managed just that. And in a way that he made a hollow through the middle of the potato, ie he hollowed out the potatoes so that the sauce would “fit” into it perfectly. A brilliant idea, and as much as it was impossible to talk at all at the beginning and think about an innovation when we talk about fries, that’s exactly what Colak did. “We already have a lot of interest and inquiries, but first we have to be a million percent sure that the whole story works in every way before we go with this product on the market, so we will not rush to market in the context of sales until everything is 100% tested ” Colak points out. Now that I am writing this article and listing what Čolak is responsible for, my admiration for this genius who works diligently and shyly under the radar is only growing, but he has achieved very measurable success. And he was just beginning to spread his wings. Imagine bringing together all our geniuses in different sectors and turning our incredible potentials into quality resources.

KPK tracks wealth, possible money laundering in Nurhadi graft investigation

first_imgThe Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is tracking the wealth and assets of former Supreme Court secretary Nurhadi Abdurrahman, who is a suspect in a bribery case.Nurhadi and his son-in-law, Rezky Herbiyono, were named as suspects for allegedly accepting nine checks and Rp 46 billion (US$3.2 million) in cash as bribes in connection with three Supreme Court cases between  2011 and 2016.KPK commissioner Nawawi Pomolanggo told the Koran Tempo daily that the antigraft agency would continue to investigate Nurhadi’s wealth and assets, as well as possible laundering efforts. “We will continue to [track his wealth] during the investigation,” Nawawi said on Monday.According to the wealth report Nurhadi filed in 2012, he possessed Rp 33.4 billion in assets that ranged from land to luxury cars. Antigraft activists expressed their suspicions over his unusually large wealth, suggesting that some of it came from illicit sources.Nawawi declined to comment further, “considering that this investigation is in the realm of pro justitia, which is strict and confidential”, he said, referring to a mechanism that guarantees legal certainty according to existing laws.Since arresting the two suspects earlier this month, the KPK has summoned several witnesses in the case, including Nurhadi’s wife Tin Zuraida. The KPK summoned Tin, who has also been detained but is not a suspect in the case, for questioning on Monday.Ali Fikri, the KPK’s acting spokesperson for law enforcement, said that the commission sought to confirm several receipts of money that Tin transferred to Nurhadi and several assets the couple owned.The investigation was also looking into Tin’s relation with Kardi, a Supreme Court employee who allegedly managed some of Tin’s wealth. “Among other things, our investigator is looking to [clarify] the ties between [Tin] and Kardi,” Ali said on Monday as quoted by on June 10, the KPK summoned Kardi and his driver for questioning. On June 15, it questioned businessman Sofyan Rosada and obtained a statement from him that substantiated the connection between Tin and Kardi.Meanwhile, Indonesian Anticorruption Community coordinator Boyamin Saiman stated that Tin and Kardi had eloped in 2001, alleging that the wedding was held at an Islamic boarding school belonging to Sofyan.Also on Monday, the KPK questioned Edward Danny Suhendra, an employee of San Diego Hills Memorial Park, regarding the alleged purchase of cemetery plots for Nurhadi and Tin. investigators also summoned Andy Kurniawan, the general manager of the luxury funeral home and cemetery.The memorial park and cemetery provides exclusive funeral services, and sells burial plots for Rp 57.1 million to Rp 101.7 million each at the private cemetery it manages in Karawang regency, West Java.Hiendra Soenjoto, the director of PT Multicon Indrajaya Terminal who is also a suspect in the case, allegedly purchased the plots for the couple as a bribe when Nurhadi was still on the run.Antigraft activists have urged the KPK to identify those parties that may have helped hide Nurhadi, who was arrested in South Jakarta six months after he was named as a bribery suspect. It was suspected that Nurhadi had been hiding in the luxury neighborhood the entire time.During Nurhadi’s arrest, the KPK seized three vehicles, cash and documents as evidence. The commission questioned Nurhadi’s daughter Rizki Aulia Rahmi on June 18 over the seized items.The KPK has said that it planned to charge Nurhadi with money laundering.Bambang Widjojanto, who served as the KPK commissioner from 2011 to 2015, previously said that proving Tin’s involvement in the case could lead to money laundering charges, claiming that she managed and couriered Nurhadi’s illicitly gained wealth.Bambang also suggested that Nurhadi and Rezky could have been involved in more than three Supreme Court cases, as Nurhadi’s position allowed him to control the judicial flow at the country’s highest court.He urged the KPK to use Nurhadi’s bribery investigation as an opportunity to uncover other corruption cases in the judiciary. (mfp)Topics :last_img read more

Madison man sentenced to 64 years for child battery

first_imgMadison, IN—In what is described by Jefferson County Prosecutor David Sutter as one of the worst documented cases of child abuse in Jefferson County, Christopher Keller, 36, of Madison, pled guilty today to four (4) counts of Aggravated Battery from the May/June 2019 battery of an 18-month-old child in his care. Keller was sentenced to sixteen (16) years on each count to be served consecutively in the Indiana Department of Correction for a total of 64 years.Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Blaine Goode was passionate in his request that the Judge give the maximum available sentence, “Maximum sentences are to be reserved for the worst of the worst offenders, and the torturous acts that the Court witnessed on the video today are the worst of the worst.”The abuse was first discovered when the child’s mother, returned home from work to find the boy had severe bruises on his head and body, a bite mark, and a large section of hair missing from his scalp. She had left the child in the care of Keller, her husband and the child’s stepfather, at the time. The mother then took him to Riley Hospital for Children for medical attention. A skeletal survey found the child had suffered six (6) compression fractures to his spine, consistent with inflicted injury.After the initial investigation and arrest of Mr. Keller, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department were contacted by a woman who reported she was in possession of SD card video documenting evidence of abuse on the child by Christopher Keller, captured via a security camera in the home. Police officers secured a search warrant of the home and seized the video.“The video, though extremely difficult to watch, documents the multiple instances of abuse over a more than eleven (11) hour period,” stated Prosecutor David Sutter. “I want to thank my Chief Deputy Prosecutor, Blaine Goode, for his efforts in pinpointing exactly which of these could yield the maximum penalty in this case and I am grateful we were able to achieve the maximum sentence today.”Keller has been incarcerated since July 29, 2019, and will serve the remainder of the 64 years at the Indiana Department of Correction. Due to the plea agreement, he will not be eligible to appeal the convictions.last_img read more

Blues must be clinical – Moyes

first_img The Toffees, sixth in the Barclays Premier League table and still in the hunt for a European berth, have scored just once in their past three matches – Steven Pienaar’s strike in the 1-0 win over Fulham last weekend. “We have played well,” Moyes said. “We have done a lot of good things, but we would like it to be better. We have just dried up a little bit on the goals side at this moment in time. I couldn’t say all year that we have been banging them in as I would like, but I think we have been up there with the most shots and crosses.” Press Association He added: “We have made plenty of attempts, but then we are maybe just not getting the finish to it. So it is something we have got to try to make sure of in these final three games – that when we get opportunities, we take them, we are clinical and we make them count.” At the other end of the field, Moyes has been greatly encouraged by what his team are producing. Everton have kept five clean sheets in their last seven games, and asked about the importance of that defensive solidity, the 50-year-old said: “Especially if you are not scoring, or if you have just dried up a little bit, you have to make sure that you don’t concede to give yourself the chance of at least getting a draw, or maybe nicking a goal to win it. “It has been good and I’m pleased that we have tightened up. It is important that you get a certain amount of clean sheets during the season and we are beginning to get much closer to it now.” Everton could have Darron Gibson back available for the trip to Anfield – where they have not won since 1999 – but captain Phil Neville has been ruled out. Moyes says midfielder Gibson, who missed the Fulham match through an injury picked up a week earlier against Sunderland, has a chance of featuring. There is bad news regarding Neville, though, with Moyes revealing that a knee problem will keep the defender – also not involved in the Fulham game – out of what will be the last Merseyside derby before his career as an Everton player finishes this summer. center_img Everton boss David Moyes has called for his side to be more ruthless in front of goal as they head into their final three games of the season.last_img read more

Allardyce to give Morrison a chance

first_img ”Sam has said Ravel is not part of his plans but we do – as a board – see him as part of our plans,” Sullivan said last week. ”I think he (Allardyce) said in a press conference, if I read it correctly, he’s not part of his plans for this season. I think he said that in New Zealand but we don’t agree with that. We would like to sit down and give him a longer contract. ”We do see him as part of the long-term future of the club but we have to agree it with the manager because there’s no point signing a player he’s not going to play.” Having broken into the first-team at the start of last season, Morrison’s star seemed to be on the rise as he endeared himself to West Ham fans after scoring a memorable goal in a 3-0 win at rivals Tottenham. But his form waned following a niggling groin injury, which has now been treated with a minor operation, and he ended the season on loan at QPR with his future at Upton Park in question. But now Allardyce, who saw Enner Valencia become his fifth summer signing after being granted a work permit on Tuesday, has backed the England Under-21 international to come good again. “We thought we’d brought Ravel to the forefront of his abilities this time last season,” he told talkSPORT. “He had a fantastic pre-season and started the season very well. That drifted away a bit and he ended up at QPR, helping them get promoted. “If he gets back to knuckling down, and getting used to the discipline side of the game, then his talents are outstanding.” The 21-year-old looked to be set for a season on the fringes of the Hammers’ first-team with Allardyce unconvinced by the attitude of the former Manchester United youngster. But co-chairman David Sullivan publicly disagreed with Allardyce, insisting the club were keen to tie Morrison down to a long-term contract. Sam Allardyce appears to have fallen into line with the West Ham board over the future of Ravel Morrison – if the midfielder works hard enough.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
