Sample Restaurant Pro Trends

Each Restaurant PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online restaurant articles, videos and images. Examples:

Incentivized Gaming Brands engage consumers with mobile games that offer tangible rewards Implications - Pushing back against assertions that mobile gaming has no tangible benefit, brands have begun offering material rewards attained through sustained mobile play. With potential to be used as a means to digital community building or as a loyalty program for the Internet age, such apps can go a long way in terms of retaining the interest of the busy modern consumer.

Eastern Infusion Cold tea beverages incorporate Eastern taste profiles for consumer allure Implications - Spicy, ethnic flavors hailing from the East have been making their way into traditionally sweeter fare, such as desserts and coffee, in order to satisfy a growing consumer desire for flavor reversal. Cold beverages are following suit, adding a spicy kick to an otherwise refreshing experience, while simultaneously providing North American consumers with international variations of iced drinks. The expansion of fusion from food to beverage signifies a consumer appreciation for new incarnations of familiar flavors.

Shareable Tradition Comfort food is portioned for communal eating Implications - Traditional comfort foods, such as pasta, are being reformatted for collective consumption. Foods that are portioned for easier sharing are popular among consumers, as it not only enhances the dining experience, but also allows them to try several dishes in one sitting. When applied to more traditional cuisines, this communal approach to eating encourages family bonding in a way that is both novel and experiential.

Mediterranean Invasion Mediterranean cuisine becomes a staple in North American culture Implications - The foodie movement has bred a consumer who is adventuresome with their eating habits. In regards to the North American consumer specifically, this means not only a willingness to try different cuisines, but a demand for them. Along with Eastern and Asian cuisines, Mediterranean food has become a top priority for food retailers and dining establishments because not only is it an accessible form of exoticism, but its emphasis on fresh ingredients align it with consumers' growing preference for healthy food.

Communal Payment Group dining is made easier with apps that help divide costs Implications - Methods of payment are going one step further to help make dining, particularly for large groups, a much easier experience. Allowing patrons to easily split bills among friends and large parties, these apps not only streamline the payment process, but also reflect a desire for more communal experiences.

Corporate Consumption Food oriented brands launch services for professionals at the workplace Implications - The complex dietary needs of small, medium and large-scale professional teams are being addressed by food companies serving contemporary offices. Frequently focused on nutrition, these edible concepts point to rising concern with health among consumers looking to improve wellness at all times, no matter the inconvenience, while also tying into the glorification of "busy."

Communal Culinary Serving large groups, digital dining services provide payment options for groups Implications - Digital dining services are no longer singling out individual consumers, but rather bigger groups in need of convenient payment options.

Automated Gourmet Smartphone apps catering to food take on ritzy, high-end angles Implications - Upscale food apps are symptomatic of a desire to communicate prestige, especially in the overshare era of social media. Technology that makes higher-end goods available allows for more convenient upscale experiences that are easily shared. This also allows consumer to indulge on an as-needs basis, making for a more non-committal form of luxury.
