The Latest Trends in Churros

Churros on American menus have grown 38% in just the past four years*. According to Datassentials, growth will continue in every segment within foodservice, including a projected 8.5% within casual dining restaurants, 4.5% in fast casual and nearly 4% in QSR by 2022.

Why are churros such a major trend among desserts and snacks? Because they are a tasty delight and are easy to heat and serve in a variety of applications. Mix them in with other desserts, use them as a topping for a frozen treat or sundae, or use them like a pastry with coffee or espresso.
