In 2018 the restaurant scene will have a dramatic change. There will definitely be more of an emphasis of healthy food. Social media will obviously play a big part as it has the last few years. Customers want food that will look good in photographs. Entertainment will also be a main focus since most people can order food and be entertained at home so restaurants will have to become more entertaining in the up coming year.
- With wages so low for most workers, all businesses have to have a laser focus on providing value to customers.
- Social media is driving many people to document and photograph their lives, including what’s on their plates; design menu items to look good.
- Tastes that contrast are becoming popular as a love of spice collides with a desire for something more than raw heat.
“The tug-of-war between demand for healthy, wholesome foods and tasty, indulgent ones isn’t going anywhere.”
