Teamwork and Menu Development: A Winning Combo
Posted on: January 27, 2017 by RMS Hospitality
As consumers become more aware of nutrition, chefs’ and dietitians’ worlds are colliding now more than ever. In order to keep up with this growing trend of nourishing the body and eating clean foods, streamlining menu development is a necessity. While chefs have historically focused on the flavor profile and aesthetics of a dish, they are increasingly becoming more cognizant of fat, sodium content, preservatives, and the like. Therefore, as we explore how menus can be updated and created, ensure your clients are backed by a customized Restaurant Insurance Program.
Hone in on new trends.
Your clients can evaluate the top food trends and determine which ones would work for their restaurant. From ethnic-inspired cuisines to putting vegetables at the forefront, there are plenty of diverse trends that your clients can feature on their menus. For more information on 2017’s restaurant trends, check out our previous post.
Focus on teamwork.
Determine your cuisine goals as a restaurant brand. Collaborate with a diverse group of team members – marketing, culinary, and legal – to ensure everyone’s aware of current regulations and your brand standards, explains the National Restaurant Association. By working together, your clients can build a cohesive and thoughtful menu that is reflective of the brand they wish to portray.
Provide a story.
If your clients choose to add items to their menus or rework their menus to focus more on nutrition, have them promote a story to go alongside. Storytelling is integral to new menu development. Explain to the customers why new items are featured, where these ingredients are sourced, and what they can expect in the future.
