Brunch crazes and demands for convenience are transforming the breakfast daypart. According to Technomic, “31% of consumers and 39% of those ages 18-34 are purchasing breakfast items outside of the traditional morning time slot.” Guests now expect the most important meal of the day to be a little more flexible and ready to eat later on. Here are a few reasons to consider beefing up your breakfast-like items and adding them to other dayparts:
- Delivery in the breakfast category is growing in popularity, as consumers are ordering these items for delivery 20% more often (Technomic, 2019 Breakfast Consumer Trend Report)
- Consumers are enjoying breakfast outside of their homes more often between grab-and-go items and leisurely brunches as these menus share the sweet spot between convenience and taste
- Globally inspired breakfast items are driving exploration
- Protein-seekers appreciate morning items for their health impact
