Millennials have a strong preference for convenience, they are less willing to cook and hence, eat at restaurants more than any other generation. Moreover, their hectic lifestyle has created the demand for fast, on-the-go foods. Instead of eating the traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner, Millennials will often turn to snacks that are convenient for their on-the-go lifestyle. They are looking for grab and go options and this should cause restaurant owners and managers to rethink what they offer their customers. Few trends in particular are set to shape the sector, with health, emotional engagement, eating indulgence and innovative locations as key themes predicted to develop over the next months.
The frozen snacks and appetizers category is seeing growth as consumers ask for it more often than in the past. As an answer to this trend Aviko offers a wide range of appetizers. Appetizers give customers a chance to try different options at a time. For your veggie loving customers you can choose out of vegan options, eg. Spicy Sweet Corn bites or Onion Rings. For those looking for both eating indulgence and healthy options you can serve gluten free Sweet Potato Fries. Don't forget about sweets loving customers and treat them with Spanish Churros.
