In celebration of its 50th anniversary, KFC partnered with experimental food experts The Robin Collective, to sweeten the deal and woo their coffee-drinking customers with something other than Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Lucky customers in select UK KFC restaurants will be able to indulge in a cup of Joe, but not just any cup of Joe. The cup is actually a cookie wrapped in edible sugar paper, lined with white chocolate that slowly melts over time; it secretly sweetens your coffee and prepares your cookie to be devoured.

 

 

So what do you say? Do you think the U.S. is ready for edible coffee cups? Would you try one? Why/why not?

EyesHave you ever gone back and forth while trying to decide what type of pizza you want?

If you have, Pizza Hut has come up with a way to give you customized recommendations for your perfect pizza – and it only takes 2.5 seconds. The pizza chain is giving customers in the United Kingdom a look at what it calls the “subconscious menu.” It’s a tablet-based menu that tracks patrons’ eye movements while looking at a variety of toppings on the screen.

Of the 4,896 possible pizza combinations, the menu will recommend one based on the topping or toppings customers looked at on the tablet screen the longest.

“This menu innovation really is ahead of its time,” a Pizza Hut spokesperson said.

Why restaurants could see strong year in 2015

Posted by

HappyGood news from the Restaurant Finance & Development Conference, held in Las Vegas last week. A number of industry experts and insiders expressed optimism for a strong year for the restaurant industry.

Among the driving factors:

An increase in consumer disposable income due to lower gas prices. That, coupled with lower operator prices for commodities could be the best pairing since peanut butter and jelly...equating to a strong year for restaurateurs!

Lower gas prices "put extra income directly into the hands of lower and middle income consumers. Lower gas prices are like an instant tax cut. If gas prices stay low, 2015 could be the happiest year since 2007", according to John Barone, president of Market Vision Inc. 

1There’s no question that the holidays bring out more people, and Darren Tristano, Technomic executive vice president, says that higher foot traffic for shopping means a likely increase of sales for restaurants.

“If shoppers are going in and out of stores, they’ll stop at a restaurant. For many, it’s a part of the holiday shopping tradition,” said Bonnie Riggs, restaurant analyst, NPD Group.

And while some look to traditional favorites, many consumers see the holidays as a time to celebrate with something special...

Comfort3The forces that shape the dessert landscape---sharing, individual sizing, artisan, bar desserts, new flavor combos---enter the market, make an impact and evolve or move on. But one market trend seems to always be there to hang its halo on favorite desserts-nostalgia.

The favorites that people grew up with are selected over and over again. Flavor & The Menu says consumers equate classics with comfort and that familiarity builds trust. It is one of the reasons you cannot go wrong with dessert options like that include classics like OREO®. In fact, according to Datassential Menu Trends, OREO® is the #1 brand on dessert menus* and has roughly 3 times the menu penetration of the next most popular brands. (Read more)...

Lagasse shared his thoughts on TNT’s On the Menu. Slated to premiere October 3rd, TNT's On the Menu is the first cooking competition show ever to give viewers at home the chance to taste the dishes they see on screen. In each episode, a group of passionate home cooks will be challenged to create a the next signature dish for that week's selected restaurant chain, stadium concession stand, or other American food business. These amateur cooks will work in conjunction with professional chefs to create their dishes, from concept to execution. A panel of judges will then determine which dish not only tastes the best, but also fits with the restaurant's current menu offerings. The winning dish will immediately go on the business' menu, giving viewers at home the chance to go try the dish the very next day. Read more...
