Volume 1 - To Go

Takeaway and delivery were already on the rise, but accelerated tremendously during the pandemic and are now preferred by many consumers. Are you taking your fair share of this opportunity? Adapt your menu and offer your unique restaurant experience for takeaway and delivery. To go = your way to grow!

Volume 2

Volume 2 - Back to Basics

Labor issues in the foodservice industry are simply a fact post-COVID. Lower-skilled staff, overtime, and staffing shortages are just a few of the obstacles you face. The main challenge will be to find a new balance between work, life and revenue. Simpler, more efficient dessert menus are the way to success!

Volume 3

Volume 3 - Premiumization

In 2025, "premium" will not be limited to fine dining and luxury. It’s a mindset. Making quality, customised experiences available to everyone will be key. What’s more, consumers want to be able to personalise their choices and manage the final cost of their order.

Volume 6

Volume 4 - Experience

Dining out is no longer just about the food. Memorable and extraordinary dining experiences are the new hot ticket. And, of course, these experiences and dishes need to be extravagant, luxurious, out of the box, exotic and shareable. Get ready to WOW your customers like never before!

Volume 5

Volume 5 - Digitalization

Digital is everywhere! A digitised reservation system, paying with smartphones, e-learning, delivery platforms... Make sure to be visible and promote your business and delivery or reservations options online and attract new, curious customers.

Volume 6

Volume 6 - Sustainability

Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword, it's a core value to be embedded in every business decision.

Reflecting your customers’ values of ethics, transparency and doing the right thing (i.e., sustainable packaging) will become even more important. The time to act is now!
