Technomic is proud to announce the launch of our Concepts 2020 program, designed to identify emerging restaurant concepts and analyze their long-term consumer appeal. In the fourth installment in a series of industry studies (including Concepts 2000, 2010 and 2015), we will identify operator best practices and trends crossing menu clusters, and tap the pulse of today's restaurant patron with relevant consumer restaurant data.
This broad concept scan will provide valuable information and insights into successful operational elements with strategic implications for chain restaurant management and their suppliers. With a focus on innovation that integrates with consumers' lifestyle demands, a key component of success for restaurant operators, our program identifies small regional chain and independent concepts, with an eye on expansion, newly redefined chains and international contenders that are hitting the sweet spot of today's consumer. We review and benchmark innovators that typically fly under the radar—to help you better understand consumer appeal and attractiveness—and deliver a detailed outlook to help chains drive traffic volume and increase ROI.
