A new report from market research firm Technomic shows that most consumers are willing to try a new menu item with an "innovative flavor," and are more likely to return to a restaurant for the same menu item.
Technomic's Flavor Consumer Trend report signals the need for operators and suppliers to provide a twist on classic offerings.
According to the report:
"In a competitive foodservice climate, flavor differentiation is a must-have for operators," said Darren Tristano, EVP of Technomic Inc.

Knowing which flavors are up-and-coming and truly enticing to guests will be essential in gaining their dining-out dollars."
