Big flavour, bigger performance

Your customers are enjoying burgers more than ever – the UK’s No.1 dish on menus is still gaining popularity, we spent a massive 7.7% more on them than in 2018. Even with 28% of consumers cutting back on their meat intake over the last 12 months, our love affair with the American classic shows no abating.

The idea of personalising burgers to make them ‘signature’ or ‘bespoke’ is also a growing menu trend and your customers love to spec them.

Demanding more from your menu

Consumers are interested in trying more variety of meats, thickness and a larger selection of toppings:

 

 

 

 

We know that 1 in 5 customers are happy to pay up to a 20%* premium for dishes they can personalise. Offering a choice of cheeses is a brilliant way to make the most of this trend without making things complicated back of house. Different cheeses can really dial up the flavour, texture and appearance of your burgers and, at Arla Pro, we have the range to maximise their appeal on your menu.
