We’re halfway through 2018, which means it’s out with the plastic straws and in with the recyclable cups. The heatwave has hit us hard, but it’s nothing compared to the restaurant trends we’ve seen this year. 2018 is all about going green, sustainability and being ahead in the technology game.

Consumers of 2018 are more environment and health-conscious than ever! We see more vegan aisles than cheese assortments in supermarkets. Aside from food transparency and healthfulness, consumers are also looking for fast and convenient alternatives to complement their busy lifestyles, which is the reason for the rise of take-out and delivery options.

As we go into the second half of 2018, it’s important to take notes on how the industry is changing, so without further ado, here is a summary of the hottest restaurant trends in 2018.

New Highs for Convenience

Contemporary consumers want their food service to be fast and convenient, and thankfully, 2018’s technology makes it easy for restaurants to do so.

Delivery friendly restaurants increased
Consumers moving online
Third party delivery services increased

Go Green is a Must

Organic and vegan was once a niche, but 2018 has proved that consumers are paying more attention to where the food comes from and not just whether or not their meals are organic and vegan-friendly.

Restaurants understand sustainability
Increase in vegan adoption
