While the COVID-19 crisis has certainly changed several aspects of beverage service in Canada -- in large part the ways in which they are delivered to customers -- the trends we saw at the beginning of the year are still just as relevant as ever. In some cases, you could even argue beverages are even more accessible than food in 2020, simply because of their portability for takeout and delivery scenarios.
One of the biggest and hottest trends in the foodservice industry is a move towards smaller kitchens and larger seating areas. As business owners and operators search for creative ways to increase sales and profits, one of the hottest products in the industry is ventless cooking equipment.
One of the hottest food trends in recent years involves the explosion of a dish known as Nashville hot chicken. As you can probably guess, this dish started out in Nashville, Tennessee. Today, however, restaurants across North America have rushed to jump on the hot chicken bandwagon — with mixed results.
To thrive in the rapidly changing food service market, businesses must stay on top of what's new and newsworthy. The only way to be successful and remain relevant is to look ahead to what your clients' customer base expects, and provide products or services tailored to those trends.
According to studies released last year by Dalhousie University, Canadians are becoming more and more, well, rooted, in a plant-based diet. The study shows that nearly 10 percent of the entire country considers themselves to be vegetarian or vegan.
This is a staggering number when you think about it. One in ten Canadians is committed to plant-based diets in one form or another. But it’s even more interesting when you dig into who that one in ten Canadian is.
