Restaurateurs today are always seeking to offer Instagrammable, wow-worthy dining experiences. Here's how operators can elevate presentation of menu items to generate buzz.
1. Set the stage for a stirring performance
Today’s beverage service has evolved to be every bit as much about storytelling and showmanship as it is about the drink itself. Patrons are looking for an extra wow factor in performance and presentation. When done right, it can elevate a drink to a unique and personal experience—while letting operators charge a premium price to match.
Set the stage for captivating beverage presentations with premium glassware that helps signature drinks tell a rich story.
2. Serve a fresher experience
Reputation is everything. And at a time when online reviews can spread instantly to an expansive audience of potential patrons, their potential to impact a venue’s standing and bottom line success is greater than ever. That means even an isolated incident related to foodservice cleanliness could easily go viral online and quickly become a problem.
The good news? New antimicrobial technology provides an additional way to protect your reputation, adding a level of defense to the dinnerware itself.
3. Create a carefree, casual environment
The right drinkware can make or break a patron’s experience—and, when it comes to replacements, the bottom line, too.
With today’s ever-more casual dining environments in the hospitality setting, premium plastic drinkware is an increasingly viable way to bring an elevated experience to the patio, poolside, cruise ships, nightclubs, outdoor events, or anywhere else you don’t want to risk your glassware but still want guests to sip in style.
4. Delight and excite by appealing to patrons' preferences
It’s all about what patrons want—and their preferences are as diverse as they are. But they all have one thing in common: Today’s patrons choose how, when and what they eat. Many are looking for small, satisfying bites where small plates are meals—requiring a more flexible, accommodating tabletop. Timeless tableware and a reserve of smaller bowls and dinnerware for sharing can make the job easier.
5. Create the crafted experience
The craft movement shows no signs of slowing down, particularly with millennial patrons who value beverages with an equally rich flavor and backstory. Tap into what makes you stand out from the crowd, delivering the full-bodied flavors and authentic presentations that craft beer aficionados crave. The right presentation can enhance perceived value and customer satisfaction while driving a strong profit per serving.
