Want to offer new, creative menu items while stretching your inventory? Expand your soup menu. It’s an ideal place to incorporate excess produce you have on hand, test guests’ response to global flavors, and provide options that transition easily from lunch to dinner. Plus, at a time when consumers are eating smaller meals throughout the day and on the go – not necessarily sitting down to a large meal at night – soup can be an ideal choice. Offer a small serving for a snack or mini meal on the go or scale it up and serve it with side dishes for bigger appetites.
