From national chains to local bistros, menus everywhere are rolling out smaller, shareable portions. Consumers are watching their wallets as well as their waistlines, and the demand for smaller portions continues to rise.
Only a couple years ago, larger portion sizes were the norm, and guests were willing to pay more for them. As tapas-style plates are appearing in more and more restaurants today, guests are encouraged to order a number of plates and share with the group, which in turn boosts their check averages.
Capitalize on this craze by introducing Simplot Sweets sweet potato fries to the menu and provide patrons options that are both cost - and health-conscious as sweet potatoes are naturally an excellent source of vitamin A. Not only can small plates offer more exciting choices, they also allow operators to easily create signature flavors that get everyone at the table talking – and coming back for repeat visits.
