Britons spend on average £13 billion a year dining out for breakfast, and with current growth at just under 1% its making headlines as the fastest growing eating out day-part in the total Eating out Market. As consumers lifestyles get consistently busier, we’re continuing to see the blurring of meal times with many consumers now undertaking a ‘brunch’ option or an all day heartier breakfast when dining out. Kara’s been monitoring the latest day-part trends and menus to make sure customers have the right range for this ever growing breakfast and brunch.

A main ingredient to offer on a loaded dish is an egg option; scrambled, boiled, or poached there all packed full of protein and with egg consumption up 18% this year; this will keep brunch menus on trend.    Use an on vogue Multi-seeded or Sourdough bloomer; perfect as an open brunch sandwich, these pre-sliced bloomers make the ultimate toast capable of adapting for an indulgent  bacon, egg and avocado sandwich or a gourmet open brunch sandwich, which can be served with scrambled egg, smashed avocado and topped with smoked salmon.

Millennials are a key consumer at breakfast and brunch, with 40% of millennials sporadically choosing to avoid gluten as a lifestyle choice it’s important for vendors to know their consumers wants and needs.
