Consumer trends influence the type of menus being created in healthcare foodservice organizations. Hospitals, long-term care facilities, colleges and universities are seeing the value in having menu items similar to what people expect to get at their favorite breakfast place.
McDonalds has been doing breakfast since the 1970’s, but not until Panera Bread saw success with their breakfast egg sandwiches did more restaurants try to capture the morning market. Starbucks has done this successfully and recently Subway has started serving the morning crowds too.
So what does this mean for healthcare foodservice? If the trends are applied correctly it could mean increases in revenue. Safest Choice™ researched and produced a white paper called Trends and Revenue Opportunities in Acute Care Dining and the information is very interesting.
Grab and go, or as the name implies, food you can eat on the run, fits into today’s busy lifestyles. Enter the almighty breakfast sandwich. Smaller portions at a smaller price and fresh, quality ingredients for homemade style items are all well-liked with consumers. The comfort food trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but ethnic-inspired options are steadily increasing in popularity. And, no matter what the trend is food safety has become increasingly important to consumers and operators alike.
