Welcome to the first edition of “Menu Feed,” a biweekly podcast from Winsight’s two foodservice brands, Restaurant Business and FoodService Director. During each episode, we’ll be taking a close look at the culinary trends shaping today’s menus. Operators, chefs and industry experts will share their insights on the flavors, ingredients, cuisines and consumer demands driving menu innovation and development.
In this first episode, Senior Editor Patricia Cobe chats with Jeff Hanak, vice president of culinary for Chili’s Grill & Bar, and Jay Miller, director of product development and corporate chef for Firehouse Subs, to find out how snacking is impacting their menus. They also get into delivery, LTOs, promotions and trending flavors.
