Recent data shows consumers are craving mini sandwiches, which has grown on menus 183% during the past year, according to Mintel Menu Insights, Q1 2008 and Q1 2009. In addition, mini burgers were the number one appetizer/starter in the National Restaurant Association’s Chef’s Survey: What’s Hot in 2009 survey.
Tyson is meeting the trend by offering new Charbroil Beef Patties. The fully-cooked one-ounce charbroiled beef patties have been proven highly versatile menu favorites optimized to deliver higher perceived value and lower food cost.
In today’s tough economy, consumers also are looking to cut back on spending, without cutting out on activities, which has brought about renewed enthusiasm for sharing. Tyson Food Service notes that menu items such as “Bistro Charbroiled Sliders & Fries” create a social and shareable environment, feeding into this trend.
