Chit Chat: 2015 Restaurant Trends Part Two

Want to know more about the restaurant trends we’re expected to see more of this year? Here are five more of our “ones to watch”.
  • Consumers enjoying bitter flavours. - Think of dark coffees, deeper chocolate and strong beers full of intense hop flavours and you’ll be on the right track. Consumers are mad about the bitter flavours and restaurants are going to give them what they want.
  • Healthier eaters. – Consumers want to live a healthier lifestyle and they care about the food they eat.  Personalised diets are expected to increase in popularity and nutrition is the keyword everyone wants to hear.
  • Local foods. - Consumers want local foods, they want to know where it comes from and that it’s a sustainable source. Chain restaurants are going to struggle with this one! It will be difficult for the chain restaurants to convince their clientele that the foods are environmentally friendly and local.
  • The human focus. -  Consumers care about the people who create and serve their food. They want them to be paid well and be a part of a sustainable food chain.
  • Generation Z. - Teens are becoming more independent in their decision making processes and it’s now time for the restaurant owners turn their focus on obtaining their custom rather than giving the millennial all of their attention.
