Mintel’s Foodservice Trends for 2018
- Co-op Cuisine: The high cost of entry for new restaurants will drive chefs to concept test in shared spaces.
- The Need for Speed: Time-strapped diners value convenience and affordability more than ever and operators will respond by leveraging technology advances, all in the name of food—fast.
- Foodceuticals: The intersection of food and function will become more apparent as menu items focus on consumers’ well-being from the inside out.
- Feed the Feed: The blurred line between social media aspiration and reality is challenging foodservice operators to create a menu that can live up to both expectations.
