Capture Today's Consumers with Plant-Based Vegan Options
The Future of Hospitality is Plant-Based
88% of food practitioners expect consumer demand for plant-based food to increase.
Veganism isn't a fringe diet any longer.
It's a lifestyle that's increasingly influencing the choices vegan tourists make in terms of the destinations they visit and the hotels they stay at.
Vegans Hold VETO Power
These days, every social group or family has a plant-based/vegan member. Vegans hold the VETO vote, so make sure your restaurant has options for them, or they may choose to dine elsewhere.
You Could Gain New Customers (Who Keep Coming Back!)
No consumer is more loyal or will give you better word-of-mouth promotion than a vegan. Vegans are interested in more than a good meal - they’re looking for places that show a commitment to health, sustainability and animal protection.
Achieve Your SUSTAINABILITY goals
Making well-informed, beyond greenwashing, sustainable choices reduces your environmental impact, your expense, and also provides exceptional guest experiences.
These efforts are further recognised by Michelin which, in 2021, created the new green star accolade for restaurants going above and beyond to keep the environment in mind and act sustainably.
3 Most Common Mistakes Restaurants Make
Could you be making one of them?
Plain, Uninspired Menu Options
If your vegan menu only consists of salad, fries, steamed veggies and white rice you're not going to excite your guests. Nor if you have the default unimaginative processed branded burger and no other options to choose from.
Misunderstanding Vegan Diets
Your menu has a 'vegan' symbol, showing that you know it's important, yet there's nothing vegan actually on the menu or you confuse vegetarian with vegan.
No Complete Vegan Dishes
You're offering a plant-based burger, but not offering a vegan bun and you're serving it with regular cheese. Or all of your salads have eggs or cheese and if you take that away your guest is left with a non-nutritionally complete meal of lettuce and tomatoes.
Dodge One-Star Reviews:Refine Your Menu & Train Your Team
Avoid unknowingly damaging your brand from a PR standpoint by not understanding the nuances of the vegan market.
Understanding vegan ingredients, food preparation dos-and-don’ts, marketing strategies and other aspects of developing plant-based menu items and training staff can be overwhelming, intimidating, time consuming and complicated.
