While it would like to put the pandemic in the rearview mirror, Restaurants Canada makes it clear that the restaurants and foodservice industry are continuing to feel the long-term effects of the last two years.
The group will be addressing the issues challenging the industry at the 2023 RC Show and offering solutions to them.
From April 10 to April 12, RC Show 2023, with its theme HEART & HUSTLE, will highlight an industry that has been challenged, survived, revived itself, and is now looking ahead to the future.
The three-day event will provide plenty of new revenue opportunities, lead the conversation in foodservice innovation, provide a platform to meet, get hands-on and gain valuable insight, address current issues, and provide solutions to strengthen business operations and keep doors open and thrive.
Some of the trends and issues to be addressed at the show, include:
- Restaurants are condensing menus and prioritizing multi-sensory experiences
- AI, robotics and technology play a huge role in the customer experience, as well as how the industry supports challenges such as new and/or inexperienced staff
- Restaurants forced to branch out, bringing curated products directly to retail and offering in-home culinary and beverage experiences, as well as taking up profitable side hustles such as private dining clubs and more
- TikTok tastemakers are shaping trends that move into the real world, using their presence online to drive excitement back to the industry
- The term Naturality takes centre stage with 80% of Canadians who have made it a personal goal to be more sustainable when buying food, as well as the packaging their products come in.
