Restaurants in the Restaurant industry are always adding new ways to fit in with their customer’s demand. Here are some of the top 5 restaurant trends that have been building momentum this year!
With nearly 728,000 tons of trash disposed of daily in the United States, some restaurants have begun implementing efforts to reduce their impact on the environment! Some restaurants have begun growing their own food, converting their buildings into LEED certified buildings, and offering meatless menu options to reduce their carbon footprint.
McDonald’s is also another company that has announced their plans to produce 100% renewable, recycled, or certified packaging by 2025!
Have you seen those commercials that announce one day only products or services? Well, several companies know that they can generate excitement and impulsion by offering those limited time offers. Early last year, Taco Bell released their Nacho Fries for the first time and it was so successful that they brought them back for another year.
Whether your restaurant uses a third-party delivery service or has their own delivery service, restaurants are seeing the need to offer more delivery options as current trends have moved consumers away from everyday dining.
McDonald’s is one of the leading contenders when it comes to making large investments on technology for customer improvements. Pizza Hut also recently purchased some online ordering software and has invested a large sum of their profits to the implementation of technology.
Lastly, restaurant employees are the very first thing that the customer sees as soon as they walk through the door. Having satisfied employees allows for the customer experience to run smooth, which can then turn a first time customer into a regular. Some ways to keep your team content could be by giving an extra hand on extra debt that they have accumulated. Chik-fil-A for instance offers benefits beyond base pay. Scholarship funds and continued learning opportunities are one big perk that they are offering in comparison to their competitors.
