Though the NPD Group has predicted the restaurant industry will recover 98 percent of 2019 traffic levels by the end of this calendar year, that doesn’t mean operations will resume pre-pandemic protocols. Digital ordering, which facilitates to-go orders and off-premises dining, has grown triple digits over the last two years, and is expected to continue growing throughout the year.
These forecasts suggest the coming months present opportunities for restaurant operators to grow their businesses—but to do so competitively and profitably will require creative and innovative attention to every detail of the menu.
In order to help operators fine-tune their menus for maximum sales and traffic, the editorial staff of QSR and FSR has compiled this report, “Making a Mark on Menus,” which breaks down the fast-trending ingredients, foods, and beverages that will set the stage for the coming seasons and into 2023.
