With erratic work schedules, early morning fitness commitments and parenting responsibilities, consumers are increasingly grabbing a midmorning snack. Maybe they skipped breakfast or downed a quick smoothie early in the morning, but around 10:30, they’re ready to refuel. As per Technomic’s Snacking Occasion Consumer Trend Report, 44% of consumers say that they are eating snacks as a second breakfast once they get to work or school. Operators offering portable breakfast snacks, such as empanadas, muffins and protein shakes, are fulfilling this demand.
