Beverage trends spilling into the restaurant industry


5 ways to successfully brew high-volume coffee

The meal-ending cup of coffee might be the last chance you have to impress diners. Make it a memorable one by brewing coffee in large batches in the best way.


Brew beverage sales with hand-crafted tea

Here are a few areas of focus for operators who want to offer carefully crafted teas.

Incorporating fresh produce in a wide variety of ways elevates cocktails and can transform restaurant drink menus.

For many people, coffee provides a mandatory, day-starting jolt. But there’s no reason your coffee sales should nosedive after the morning rush.

Bloody Marys have been heating up beverage menus in recent years. And, given current dining trends, it’s easy to see why.

Coffee drinkers, especially older millennials, aren’t just gulping coffee for a simple morning pick-me-up. They want a deeper, more sophisticated coffee experience that’s achieved through high-end brewing methods and premium ingredients.

There’s no doubt about it: Cold coffee beverages are hot. From straight-up iced coffee to premium cold brew and ultra-trendy nitro, these chilly java jolts have hooked consumers, who are willing to pay for refreshing, craveable brews throughout the day.

When it comes to trying to define the millennial generation, it’s hard to make generalizations. There is one thing, however, that can be said about them with some certainty: They love specialty coffee beverages. And that’s not just opinion; the statistics bear it out.

Like the coffee culture that percolated over the last two decades, made-to-order juices, sodas and frozen drinks promise to be the next wave of liquid gold.

Frozen beverages today appeal to a broad audience and, more importantly, can make an important contribution to their bottom line without adding a lot of labor.
