Food trends are important for every restaurant owner to consider. Bar and craft brewery owners may also want to consider staying on top of food trends, as their industries can sometimes go hand in hand.
Take the trend of cooking with beer, for example. As with wine, beer can bring unique flavors and distinctive tastes. It can take a beer pairing to a whole new level. Of course, for years chefs in Wisconsin have been making a beer batter for the weekly fish fry. Traditionally beer has also been used to make bread, soups or dips. A new application is desserts – like the chocolate stout cake.
A staple of food businesses that has evolved in recent years thanks to advances and changes in technology is the to-go, pick up and delivery models of food service. Ordering online is as common today as ordering via phone was ten years ago. Make sure your restaurant has the best online ordering platform available to make this process easy for your customers. Otherwise they may move on to your competition!
