Top 3 Trends To Watch In Food Service

The food service industry is always changing

3 Key Food Service Trends

Food service is a constantly growing and changing industry. Make sure you keep up with the times and stay on trend in today’s busy world!

1. Clean/green movements

More and more, people are interested in where their food came from, how it was produced, and are concerned about green shipping, packing, and even small details like utensil recycle-ability and straws. These movements are great for the environment – and also keep conscientious customers happy. Make special note of anything that is made out of recycled materials, anything that is green, and items like farm to table food, and advertise it more – this lets customers know that your brand shares their values and will increase your sales. Chain restaurants in particular can benefit from joining these movements.

2. Global influences

Observing regional and global influences, and mixing and matching unique tastes, flavors, and presentation will attract more sophisticated diners. Doing interesting blends and fusions of ethnic foods, and presenting food in new ways influenced by other countries makes dining more exciting for consumers. Independent restaurants may want to investigate this sort of trend as it may be easier to integrate new flavors into their menus.

3. Experiential Events

Diners are always looking for new and exciting ways to experience food. Whether it’s including them in the cooking experience, set menus, or other kinds of special galas – customers like to attend special one of a kind events. Hold events, use your function rooms if you have them as event space and partner with other local businesses to build unique one of a kind functions to attract repeat customers. Equipment for these kind of events can be found in our distributors database.
