Different Diners, Different Dietary Needs

No two diners are the same, but like any groups, different styles of diners may have similar nutrition needs during dining.  Here are some of the groups and trends that I have observed: 

 

The Business Lunch Crowd: 

 

  • Who they are:  If you operate in a metro area you know them well.  Smartly dressed, they either come in to grab a quick desk meal, or come in and sit down for a business lunch/meeting.  Whether in a group or on their own, one thing is…

A day in the life of a gluten avoider



For you lucky ones where gluten is not a problem, going out to eat is a pleasant assault on your senses. So you do it quite regularly.  You hear about some place new or something new to eat through your friends.  You see something in an ad or on a menu that looks really, really delicious.  Or maybe you get lucky with a Groupon or something similar in social media that motivates your new dining experience. 

 

So, you plan an evening out.  You grab your keys and go with…

Gluten Free, Vegan, Raw, Slow, Organic, Kosher, Whole; what do they have in common?

By straight definition?  NOTHING     By commonality?  PLENTY!  They are all food movements of one kind or another reflecting choice whether medically necessary, of religious foundation or nutritional concerns.    These food ‘movements’ are trend signals of what people are now choosing to eat.  AND, they all require a commitment by food service to provide special accommodation.

 

I have always belonged to the ‘you are what you eat’ group.    I like to think that my choices have…

 As proof that what I say actually resembles fact, I see food service quickly embracing this market and announcing gluten free and allergen free menus.  Go into any retail food store now and you will find many, many gluten free products.…

Mixed Picture in December/January Restaurant and Consumer Sales Picture

Coming into earnings season, we were interested to see the generally positive December chain retail sales comparable reports and how it related to chain restaurants. So far, it hasn’t. The weekly retail reporting universe is more robust than restaurant sales, with ICSC, Redbook Research, Shopper Track, MasterCard Spending Pulse and others with detailed reporting.



Even the fastest reporting restaurant chains have a 30-day lag, although McDonalds (MCD) and Carl’s (CKR) do provide a… Continue

What the Others are Doing

I’m always thinking about different ways that restaurants can appeal to the ever growing crowd of health conscious diners. There’s the obvious salad with dressing on the side and grilled chicken breast or salmon filet; but good business, especially in the food industry comes from innovation. It also comes from what I call innovative reproduction (AKA taking ideas from others and doing it better). I found an article on health.com titled… Continue
