Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru™ stated “one of the hallmarks of the grocerant niche is consumers growing appetite for ‘better for you’ food and beverage options.” Bundling ‘better for you’ Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food with full flavored portable meals and meal components will drive sales.
Ed Ancewicz, chef for Eurest the contract foodservice company that serves business and industry clients, stated “People try to eat well, but wellness items do not always taste good,” he says. “But you can add spices to it. A little spicy sausage goes a long way in flavor without compromising the integrity of the food.”
The rapid growth of multigenerational households, multi-cultural households, and a growing Hispanic population combined has created a platform in which “spicy foods” full flavored food will continue expanding its reach. Today’s as the demand for bolder, spicier and adventurous flavors continues to grow. Fewer and fewer consumers have the skill-set, time or inclination to cook from scratch or clean-up the kitchen according to Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru™.
Billie Jo Waara chief marketing officer at Taco John’s stated’ “There has been a lot of attention on breakfast in the last year in the industry. In our consumer research, consumers want a breakfast that is tasty and flavorful and a break from the normal routine. Our goal was to innovate and give a kick to someone’s morning routine.”
One of the best-selling items at Taco John’s is a spicy breakfast burrito according to Waara. The Taco John’s breakfast burrito combines scrambled eggs with a savory chorizo sausage, jalapeños and spicy salsa. Breakfast now account for 7.5 percent to 8 percent of menu sales for the franchised restaurants.
