Culinary trends may come and go, but when a new concept captivates diners, it holds the power to shake up an entire industry. Such is the case for some of the most notable trends expected to hit restaurants in 2020. From CBD-infused cuisine to plant-based meats, a variety of exciting opportunities promise to improve several elements of the modern dining experience, while still delivering the exquisite flavors, convenience, and sense of community that diners expect.
From the “Impossible Whopper” at Burger King to meatless chicken at KFC, businesses everywhere are starting to offer a wide variety of plant-based meat alternatives.
