DISH: BANANAS FOSTER SHAKE
CATEGORY: DESTINATION DISHES
A dish that’s unique can get customers in the door. Craveability is what entices them to return. The best-sellers in the Destination Dishes category made the list for being items customers can’t get anywhere else and desire enough to come back for again and again.
Better burger chains are hardly rare, but Burger 21 has a secret weapon that helps make it a destination—and it’s not a burger. For its Bananas Foster Shake, the chain deconstructed the classic dessert and turned it into a drink. On top, a staffer caramelizes a banana to order as a service differentiator.
