One trend in market is growing preference for gas fryers with built-in filtration systems. Foodservice establishments using commercial gas fryers prioritize the quality of food items and quality of the oil used to fry. Due to the continuous usage of oil, accumulation of food debris reduces the quality of food items. To overcome the issue, vendors are providing built-in filtration system with gas fryers so that the oil can be cleaned and filtered repeatedly.
According to the report, one driver in market is high profit margins in fried foods. Fried food products often account for profit margins of over 70% in foodservice establishments, mainly QSRs. For instance, chicken nuggets, which are one of the popular selling products of QSR chains, have a wholesale price of around $2.5 per pound.

Therefore, foodservice establishments earn a gross profit margin of approximately 90% and, by including other costs, such as labor wages and energy cost, the net profit margin reaches around 75% on chicken nuggets.
