Consumer demands and trends run the hospitality industry and lead the charge into the future. Without consumers after all, the industry itself would have no ground to stand on. And recent consumer demands show a preference towards more digital options to keep up with this digital age we find ourselves in. The digital options consumers are looking for in bars though, may surprise you.
Most of the recent digital age tech we see in restaurants and bars is to expedite the ordering process. Whether it’s QR code menus, online ordering via your phone, or ordering kiosks in the building, it can all be overwhelming to consumers who just want to order their food. According to a recent consumer trend report from me&u, 80% of those surveyed expect to see smart technology involved in hospitality going forward, while 85% feel that while technology can be useful, they feel venues are all about people and human interactions.
These numbers tell us that consumers are looking for technology to help make their experience better to some degree, they still want that interpersonal, human element to come with their night out as well.
