Trends that matter in your market


We all know that trends come and go, especially on the food and beverage side of Hospitality.  A recent article in Hotel News Now focuses on F&B trends stating,

"A big part of maximizing food-and-beverage revenue at your hotel comes down to identifying and investing in trends that have staying power. Staying ahead of the curve when it comes to dining and drinking trends gives your restaurant relevance as a neighborhood destination, not just a choice for guests."

We couldn't agree more! But keeping up with F&B trends should extend beyond your restaurants and into your markets, pantries and gift shops.  Guests expect to see similar food in your markets as in your restaurants, creating a comprehensive experience that seems to flow effortlessly between all your F&B outlets. 

That is why our team here at Tradavo is constantly staying up-to-date on all F&B trends, from local gourmet snacks to the gluten free movement sweeping across the country - we try and incorporate these aspects into our customers markets. Below are a few trends we believe are here to stay:
