Foodservice is constantly evolving, and each year brings a fresh set of forecasts for what’s new and what’s next. The stakes are high as operators strive to overcome challenges and maximize opportunities.
As changing demographics transform the foodservice landscape, elevating menus to reflect America's diverse culinary influences takes center plate. Demographic shifts serve up opportunities for foodservice operators to pay homage to a broad spectrum of heritages. Insights into consumer segments are increasingly important as the market's appetite for ethnic culinary inspirations continue to grow.
Each year, the Multi-Unit Foodservice Operators (MUFSO) Conference serves up a feast of food and beverage trends.
Let’s face it: Small plates are a big deal. Quick, sharable and flavorful, they fill a need that traditional meals leave empty.

Hungry for a taste of success in a wellness-oriented competitive environment, foodservice operators are on a quest to unwrap a winning formula for snacking satisfaction.
