Your guests love to experiment with new, exotic flavours. Which is why it's important for you to add an international flavour to your breakfast buffet.
And don't just take our word for it! According to the Insight Survey's South African Fast Food Industry Landscape Report, South Africans are super keen for exotic, far-flung tastes:
- South American flavours from regions such as Peru, Mexico and Argentina are expected to rise in popularity as consumers are interested in trying unique foods with which they are unfamiliar.
- Asian flavours from regions such as Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and India are also expected to do well as the sour, bitter and aromatic flavours make them both familiar and exotic.
- Regionally based foods and flavours are making an impact, as Chefs highlight the different regions' uniqueness and traditions in offerings.
Adding a few international offerings to your breakfast buffet is a sure-fire way to keep your local guests happy. And international guests? Offering them clearly labelled local South African fare will make their day.
