31 Mar The Best Bet for Menu Success Since the Cookie
To make such a declaration is a bold one. Yet, ¡Hola! Churros™ checks more boxes for menu success than the century-old cookie. Here’s why.
When it comes to menu versatility, churros are at the top of the list. As a confection, churros are typically tossed or sprinkled in a cinnamon sugar that spells instant delight, but that’s just the start. Operators can create their own interpretations that make them dip sticks for dunking, sprinkled with everything from Dippin’ Dots® to colorful breakfast cereal, or dredged through caramel or chocolate. Churro bites are likely the most versatile for using as toppings over ice cream, shakes, and more.
Churros are right for any daypart. From breakfast to a late-night snack, these versatile treats are ideal for any menu and any segment in the foodservice industry. The options are practically endless.
But unlike a cookie, churros can serve as a uniquely shaped base for everything from the centerpiece of a charcuterie to a spicy delight when sprinkled with a spicy dry spice for a BBQ or burger side. Some operators even explore “loaded churros”, but sweet or savory as an alternative to loaded fries.
Best of all, operators can leverage their existing pantry for adding their own special touch to their churros. ¡Hola¡ Churros, in their many shapes and even fillings definitely wins when versatility is a key factor.
Is It Trend Worthy?
No snack or dessert is trending higher than churros. Checking the box as a mini-dessert, dessert, breakfast dessert or snack, churros are globally inspired that offers special interest for Gen Z and Millennial customers and their children.
While churros hold a 10-point lead among all competitors within the dessert category, there is plenty of room to grow. While cookies are ubiquitous on nearly 42% of all menus according to Datassential, an operator choosing churros can set their menu apart from the rest, no matter their cuisine.
