food service trends

Are you ready for some seafood?

The quintessential image of autumn captures trees adorned with orange leaves, pumpkin patches, and the occasional Harvest cornucopia. But for many Americans, a picturesque fall season consists of 100 yards of green, two teams, and one pig-skin: the start of football season.


The kick-off to fall begins the transition to heartier “comfort food” on menus, especially in regards to football fare and appetizers. Put seafood in the game to differentiate a menu from typical fall offerings. Adding the nutrient-dense and protein-rich food appeals to customers who strive to strike a balance between being healthy and indulgent while dining out, a trend reported by Technomic, Inc.

“We have noticed significant growth in seafood sales during games, a lot has to do with the popularity of the NFL and college football amongst females.”

– Chris Thompson, Kitchen Manager of Joe Theismann’s Restaurant
