Minneapolis, MN, February 24, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Foodservice operators may need to rethink their back-of-house strategies, according to a 2016 trends report by Restaurant Technologies. The report details three megatrends transforming the foodservice industry and what it means for back-of-house operations.
The foodservice megatrends discussed include:
· The changing demographics and rising expectations of consumers, such as the millennials who are bringing a whole new set of attitudes toward life, work and food.
· The fast-casual category’s proven pillars of success, which are becoming an industry standard for all restaurant types. The modifications in labor wages and regulations affecting the workforce and quality of dining experiences.
“We see a fundamental shift in expectations among consumers and labor that foodservice operators can’t afford to ignore,” says Restaurant Technologies CEO Jeff Kiesel. “New times call for new standards in food quality, efficiency, safety and sustainability. Our findings point to a growing call for safer, smarter kitchens.”
Upon reviewing these megatrends, Restaurant Technologies’ white paper covers how oil management can help foodservice operators meet new consumer and labor expectations and succeed in a redefined foodservice landscape.
