Concession Food & Beverage Trends to Watch for in 2019

Now that the end of 2018 approaching, it’s time to take a look at emerging trends in the concession food and beverage industry in 2019.

From getting creative with your deep fryer, to investing in gourmet popcorn, here are the concession food and beverage trends you need to watch in 2019.

Emerging Trends in Food and Beverage Industry in 2019

As consumers become more refined in their tastes and more socially conscious, they want to know they’re being ethical consumers of concession food. That means stocking healthy, ethically-sourced versions of concession food favourites, such as organic caramel apples or recyclable packaging.

Of course, everyone loves fried food, so providing creative, delicious deep-fried concoctions you can only get at a live event is key to staying ahead of emerging trends in the food and beverage industry in 2019.

Upscaling traditional concession food items will continue to attract customers who want to expand their gustatory horizons, so we advocate trying to put an international twist on your hot dogs with options like exotic sauces and toppings, like Korean kimchi.

Gourmet Popcorn Continues to Reign

When it comes to profitable concession food, you can’t beat gourmet popcorn. With great profit margins and even better taste, providing fresh, Instagram-worthy gourmet popcorn should be a staple for any concession company.

What’s more, many grocery stores are investing in permanent gourmet popcorn stands that provide an elevated shopping experience and seasonal snack opportunities. Gourmet popcorn installations are definitely an emerging trend to watch in the food and beverage industry in 2019.
