As we say our goodbyes to 2019, and say hello to 2020, we can’t help but get excited for the new food trends that await us!
At Motion Technology, Inc., we are always keeping our eyes open for the latest in flavor, restaurant layout, and social craze. So, we put together a list of the Top Five Food Industry Trends for 2020 and could not be more excited to share them with all of you! Let’s check them out…
Nashville Hot Chicken
This spicy fried southern delicacy has been popping up on menus across the US, even the big boys, like Kentucky Fried Chicken and Hattie B’s are getting into the race. It should be no surprise to anyone that here at the home of the AutoFry, we are all in on fried food trends, especially ones that involve chicken! This delicious dish is a quick and easy item that pairs perfectly with a cold craft beer spicing up any menu…. see what we did there.
Unconventional Butters & Spreads
When it comes to toasting up tasty breads, bagels and muffins, there is no better option than our MultiChef XL. Which is why we are over the moon with our second food trend for 2020, unconventional butters and spreads. In the year to come, cafes and coffee shops will be serving up their baked goods with unusual toppings like watermelon or truffle butter! We have come a long way since the days of strawberry jam and apple butter, but we certainly aren’t complaining.
Next Level Desserts
Nothing takes a dessert to the next level like deep frying! From Oreos to Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches, we just can’t get enough of deep-fried desserts in the AutoFry. From the young, to the young at heart, adding these next level desserts to any menu is sure to be a favorite of every customer.
Expanding Menus for Delivery & Takeout
As the food delivery app craze continues, it would appear there is no slowing down any time soon. It turns out, people love enjoying scrumptious food from the comforts of their own home. Naturally, businesses need to capitalize on this by expanding their menus to include items that can be prepared quickly and still maintain their integrity through travel. Our ventless equipment is perfect for serving up the food that will do exactly just that!
Open Kitchen Concept
With a New Year, comes a new look! Restaurants will start to look a bit different in 2020, with many embracing the Open Kitchen Concept. Diners will have the opportunity to watch the magic happen as their food is prepared before their eyes. At MTI, we are very excited for this up and coming trend, as our automatic deep fryers and high-speed oven are ideal for these types of layouts. Our sleek and compact designs makes finding a spot for our products easy.
Well, that rounds up our Top Five Food Industry Trends for 2020. While 2019 was a great year, we are thrilled to see what the new year has in store!
