Hispanic Dining Out Trends
Hispanics pose a significant opportunity for the future of foodservice as they represent a large, growing population who is still establishing brand, food and flavor preferences within the foodservice / fresh bakery industry.
Why Focus on the Hispanic Community?
According to the US Census Bureau, the Hispanic population has reached a record 57 million, making up the country's ethnic minority. In 2016, 25% of all restaurant traffic, or 9.8 billion visits, were consumers of Hispanic origin.
