Think Beyond Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
Amid changing eating patterns, Dannon® can meet the needs of hotel guests.
Today’s consumers are redefining typical dayparts. Busy schedules mean there’s not always time for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As these traditional mealtimes blur together, snacks are stealing share, and consumers’ demand for better-for-you options is higher than ever.
According to Technomic, 64% of consumers say they eat snacks between meals, up from 49% in 2014. When it comes to snacking, though, not just any item will do. Key drivers of snack consumption include flavor (85%), brand (68%), and healthfulness (51%). It's important for you to find snacking options that check all three boxes, while keeping the logistics of your operation and specific needs of your guests in mind.
Technomic’s MenuMonitor shows that gluten-free, healthy, and low-fat menu descriptors are especially influential to consumers in the hotel and lodging space. Healthy snacking in general is on the rise, as 90% of consumers agree that healthy eating is important.
Morning, noon, night, and anytime in between, Dannon® has a diverse product portfolio that can help you build business and create memorable experiences for your guests. See how you can cover all of your bases with Dannon.
