Snack Time: Summer's 4th Meal

As temperatures rise, so do the amount of customers frequenting restaurants for after-work happy hours and impromptu weekend get-togethers. And what are they looking for…snacks!

Mintel finds that 30% of people are looking to appetizer lists for more snacking options throughout the day (Mintel Menu Insights). As today’s patrons look to nibble, snack and share their way through a meal, snacking is becoming a growing opportunity in the industry.

Dips & Spreads – A Must Have for any Snack-Friendly Menu

Dips and spreads are perfect for snacking and create a party atmosphere. They give patrons what they are looking for - a lot of shareability, mixing and matching and interacting with food, and they provide operators with easy, cost-effective ways to enhance their appetizer offerings.
