When it comes to tasty Mexican food, the first state that comes to mind probably isn’t Utah. However, a Utah-based Mexican fast food chain has honed its craft by making everything on its menu from scratch, every day (including tortillas), and expanding into new markets. It also seeks to rival the assortment of Mexican restaurants in the Valley, with the chain’s first-ever location in Arizona.

About to open in Buckeye, Cafe Rio Mexican Grill combines the new with the old. It takes an ancient way of cooking food, where everything is homemade, including salsas, marinated meats and guac. And it combines it with the new, where almost all customer interactions with the restaurant will be digital.

Customers can enter the restaurant and place their orders at one of two large digital kiosks (similar to the digital kiosks found at other fast food chains like McDonald’s).

For those who don’t fancy going in, they can place an order through the Cafe Rio Mexican Grill app and receive their food curbside, and there’s also a drive-thru option. Of course, all the food inside is still prepared by employees, but digital order taking helps free up staff to focus entirely on food preparation.

The very first Cafe Rio Mexican Grill opened in St. George, Utah in 1997. According to the restaurant, they focus on making food from southern New Mexico, Texas as the “region” of the Rio Grande in Mexico (of course, the Rio Grande is called Rio Bravo in Mexico, and the “region” is the entire Mexico/Texas border down to the Gulf of Mexico). After several years of preparing fresh food daily, the restaurant has expanded to six locations around St. George. Eventually, new management took over (multiple times), and now Cafe Rio Mexican Grill has moved south to Arizona.

Some of the menu items include the Sweet Pork Barbacoa, which is smothered in the restaurant’s specialty sauce and loaded with pulled pork, rice, and beans. The Sweet Pork Barbacoa Salad as well as the Burrito Enchilada style are other fan favorites. On the menuwhich also includes everything from tacos to nachos and a handful of specialty sauces.

Cafe Rio Mexican Grill in Buckeye is located at 19550 West Indian School Road (#140). It is open Monday to Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

A McDonald’s employee has become a celebrity among customers – regularly singing during shifts. Richard Walker, 31, first performed at the fast food joint five years ago and found fans kept coming back to ask questions about his upcoming show.

The restaurant manager then offered him a permanent slot at the London branch on Liverpool Street, and now he regularly sings his tunes behind the counter. Richard, from Streatham, said: “I sing almost every night. Sometimes just a few songs, sometimes I can go all night – just call me Lionel Richie Walker.

“Acting is hard work, but when I see surprised and happy people dancing, singing and taking out their phones to film while waiting, I’m humbled. I never thought anyone would ever appreciate something I have do like this.

The customer experience leader has worked at McDonald’s since 2012, but it wasn’t until 2017 that he first showed his skills. He offered to sing a series of songs to help raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities, including “I Can See Clearly Now”, “Don’t Worry About A Thing”, and “Three Little Birds”.

Single man Richard said: ‘I offered to sing inside the store because even though I wasn’t very good, the sheer weirdness of someone singing over burgers would be quite shocking. It would be a memorable novelty.

“A lot of people smiled, waved, donated to our charity, but I really knew I was on to something a few days later when people came back a few days later still talking about it. .”

He was invited to continue performing in a permanent slot in the busy restaurant and has since raised over £2,000 for charity. Richard now regularly sings songs by Bob Marley, Bruno Mars and Luther Vandross for fast food lovers

Richard said: “Some sing and dance with me, we are all energized by customer reactions. I like to show people that we are talented people behind the McDonald’s counter – I hope it improves the sometimes negative stereotypes of fast food workers. We are gifted human beings.

Korean joins the fast food route

Dak Galbi and Kudsan cafes offer quick snacks

Ms. Kanokorn, left, and Ms. Preeyawan, right, announce a collaboration to provide freshly cooked Korean meals at Kudson cafes on the second floor of select 7-Eleven stores across the country.

Korean food is perceived as premium in Thailand. Thais rarely order it for takeout, mostly from chain restaurants in shopping complexes, hotels, or Korea Town on Sukhumvit Road.

Korean restaurants have been operating in Thailand for more than two decades, but only gained popularity after the South Korean historical drama Dae Jang Geum broadcast locally in 2005, telling the story of an orphan cook who becomes the king’s first female doctor.

Since then, Korean cosmetics, K-pop, electrical appliances, instant noodles, K-series, and Korean cuisine have gained popularity in Thailand.

Popular Korean food brands in Thailand include Bon Chon under Minor Food Group, Red Sun under Food Passion and Dak Galbi under Charoen Pokphand Foods, the flagship company of food giant Charoen Pokphand Group.

In 2020, the market value of Korean food was estimated at 2 billion baht, with an average growth of 4-5% per year.

“We believe the Korean trend will last a long time in Thailand, with the cuisine expected to become a traditional local food within the next five years,” said Preeyawan Tantasuralerk, senior vice president of Dak Galbi Group.

In an effort to raise the profile of Korean dishes among Thai consumers, Dak Galbi has partnered with Kudsan, a lifestyle cafe under CP All Plc, the operator of 7-Eleven stores, to develop and supply four Dak Galbi Korean dishes freshly cooked at 555 Kudsan lifestyle cafes. , which are located on the second floor of select 7-Eleven store branches across the country.

This collaboration began on April 4.

Popular dishes include Tteokbokki (hot and spicy rice cake), Korean fried chicken wings, and Korean fried chicken with rice, which range in price from 89 to 129 baht.

“The demand for freshly cooked food has steadily increased, driven by the Covid-19 outbreaks, which have prompted Thai people to become more hygienic and health conscious,” Ms Preeyawan said.

“Five K-pop drama series are among the top 10 titles on Netflix, helping to promote Korean food culture. The spicy taste of Korean cuisine also attracts the appetite of Thai people.”

She said the company plans to add four new Korean dishes to Kudsan cafes in June.

Dak Galbi wants to increase the number of Kudsan cafes offering its dishes to 1,200 branches by the end of this year and 2,000 branches next year from 555, Ms Preeyawan said.

Kanokorn Thipayaponkul, head of Kudsan and Belline’s Premium Cafe under CP All, said Dak Galbi’s provision of Kudsan Korean dishes will differentiate its stores from rivals and attract more B-tier customer groups.

Customers can also order Kudsan Korean dishes through the 7-Eleven delivery app, she said.

According to Ms. Kanokorn, there are 5,000 Kudsan cafes across the country, and the number is expected to increase to 6,700 by the end of this year.

Ms Preeyawan said the company plans to spend 100 million baht to open 10 Galbi X outlets, its Korean street food brand, in Bangkok this year, bringing the total to 13 branches by the end of the year. year.

The company also wants to open Dak Galbi Korean cuisine restaurants in the third and fourth quarters at The Mall department stores and Central shopping complexes, she said.

Under its plan, Dak Galbi expects sales to rise to 500 million baht from around 200 million last year.

What is the secret of a good burger? This is a question that could be debated for hours and hours, and you’re sure to get a different answer from anyone.

Clearly though, Chuck and Blade Burgers in Rochester have cracked the secret with no problem considering they are currently the highest rated fast food restaurant of all Medway on TripAdvisor with an overall rating of 5/5. It’s really no small feat, considering the competition and how important people can be to food.

With that in mind, we couldn’t help but want to try such a reputable restaurant for ourselves. I traveled to Rochester and couldn’t wait to taste what might be the best burger I’ve ever had.

First impressions



I was very impatient to discover such a famous restaurant

I have to say that I was immediately impressed with the location. The restaurant was stylishly modern but still cozy and comfortable.

During my visit I was greeted by very lovely staff who were incredibly friendly and attentive throughout my meal. The popularity of the restaurant took hold immediately, given that at the time of my arrival there was only one free table, so I had definitely chosen the right moment for my lunch – the candle on the table was also a nice touch.

In keeping with the very hip vibe of the place, I also have to give credit to whoever controlled the music in the restaurant, with a playlist of modern rock (the truest way to my heart if there was one) that really elevated the overall experience for me. Of course, the main reason I was here was the food, and looking at the extensive menu, I was excited to get my hands on it.

My food



My cheeseburger and fries immediately impressed me
My cheeseburger and fries immediately impressed me

I decided to play it safe, opting for the regular cheeseburger which came with two patties, American cheese, French mustard and ketchup, with a side of skin on fries and a Coke to wash it all down. . From the first bite of the burger, I knew I was in for a treat.

Delicious is not a strong enough word to describe this burger, it was really something else. From the beautifully tender and flavorful burger patties themselves, to the incredibly moist, lightly toasted buns combined with the sauces and cheese made for a burger I won’t soon forget.

With each additional bite, my opinions were only reinforced and I grew more and more sad about the less burger I had left to enjoy. Looking at the menu, I’m very excited to try out some of the more extravagant options in the future.

It was clear to see that they had really cracked the code to make the perfect burger. Not to mention the fries, themselves incredible, perfectly balanced between a crispy exterior and a soft interior.

It didn’t take me long to look down and see an empty plate, a true sign of a good meal. It’s a burger I won’t soon forget and priced at £14.40 for everything I ordered, it certainly didn’t break the bank either, especially for a food from such quality.

Verdict



A clear plate, the truest sign of a good meal if there is one
A clear plate, the truest sign of a good meal if there is one

Does this restaurant deserve so much praise and hype? Absolutely, I can’t think of a restaurant in Medway that is beyond me.

With a branch also open in Canterbury, I really can’t recommend this place more. I know I will be back, probably very soon.

Now the question remains, is this the best burger I’ve ever had? I have to be honest and say probably.

I draw a blank over all the others that have left me so impressed in the past, even Five Guys, which has been one of my favorites over the years, has been overshadowed by this. So if you’re ever in the area and craving lunch, skip McDonald’s or Burger King and make your way here.

DUBLIN, April 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “China Catering Market, Share, Size, Forecast 2022-2027, Industry Trends, Growth, Impact of COVID-19, Business Opportunity Analysis” report has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The Chinese catering market will reach US$914.09 billion by 2027

China has the fastest growing restaurant market Asia. China per capita income in more than 10K and its growth year on year, so eating out is becoming a common norm.

Outraged, China easily adapt to faster development through more diverse and comprehensive business scope and reform of traditional food delivery methods. Remarkably, the market demand for catering services is increasing as its citizens seek a more convenient life, which implies that the future will also have a wider catering services market.

China’s catering industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% over the period 2021-2027

Over the years, with the rapid economic growth and the continuous improvement of residents’ income levels, the restaurant industry has grown rapidly and reached a thriving scene in China. Nevertheless, good drinking patterns in China have changed considerably with the improvement in the standard of living.

In addition, Chinese consumers are increasingly demanding and look for the following qualities when shopping: confidence in food safety and integrity of ingredients, high quality, excellent nutritional value, better lifestyle through a variety of food and beverages, modern packaging, freshness and convenience.

Independent food service is widespread

By food sector, there are many commercial and non-commercial restaurants that initially cater to expats, the wealthy and the upper middle class, which mainly include independent foodservices and Chinese chain foodservices. According to the analysis, independent catering services are widespread.

Remarkably, many social occasions and family celebrations now take place at Chinese Chained Food Service restaurants, increasing traffic in venues that are expected to gain further market share in the coming years. Additionally, the widespread trend of socializing in cafes among urban millennials and generally the younger part of the population is further fueling the growth of the chain restaurant market.

Full-service restaurants hold the lion’s share

By type of restaurant, full-service restaurants encompass all seated establishments characterized by table service and relatively higher food quality than quick-service units, which seek the attention of a large base of consumers who take the lion’s share. Menus at these outlets offer multiple selections and can include breakfast, lunch, and dinner, adding to consumer preferences.

Additionally, the types of restaurants cataloged in this segment refer only to table service (waiters tending to customers and taking orders at tables). It includes fine dining and casual restaurants. Food and beverage sales are delivered to the consumer by a point-of-sale employee or third party.

Light meals, fast food, snacks and Japanese cuisine are gaining traction in the industry

By type of food, the editor studied Chinese cuisine, light meals, fast food, snacks, Western cuisine, Japanese cuisine and others existing in the China catering sector. Remarkably, convenience food types such as light meals, fast food, snacks, and Japanese cuisine are no longer considered a convenience, but are the most sought after variations.

Nevertheless, the time spent on meals is reduced, with a consequent increase in the consumption of snacks and pre-packaged products suitable for consumption on any occasion which are added to the market of the variants mentioned above. According to the analysis, the size of the foodservice market in China was US$579.07 billion in 2021.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Chinese foodservice restaurant market

The restaurant segment has seen a steady decline in 2020 due to the pandemic. However, with the steady resumption of the pandemic, Chinese millennials have become more confident and felt safe to frequent restaurants with proper precautionary measures. In times of health and economic crisis, the purchase of local products is a very important element for Chinese consumers.

Despite the financial difficulties of many families, the quality of food products remains undisputed and privileged. Remarkably, during the lockdown, 100% home delivery had experienced tremendous growth; however, when the restaurants reopened, the situation returned to equilibrium.

Competitive landscape

Remarkably, global players are expected to hold a large share as there is an increased trend for pizza and other fast food. The Chinese restaurant industry is very fragmented, with many players.

Few players who hold a significant market share are

  • Starbucks Corp.
  • Papa John’s International Inc.
  • Domino’s Pizza Inc.
  • Restaurant Brands International Inc.
  • Tim Hortons
  • Jollibee Foods Corp.
  • Ajisen (China) Holdings Limited

In New York and a handful of other densely populated cities, you can sit in a Starbucks (SBUX) – Get the Starbucks Corporation report, look out the window and see another Starbucks. It’s an odd sight, but it makes sense in an area where the occupants of a single office building could occupy a cafe all day.

Starbucks – more than any other chain – has embraced the idea that one of the solutions to busy stores is simply to open more stores. The coffee company has done this in major cities, adding mobile-order-only stores alongside its traditional cafes.

The opening will take place after a pop-up in midtown Manhattan this month that will introduce New Yorkers to the UK-based Neat Food Co (NEAT) brand, which encompasses both the burger concept and a retail brand that will also expand to the United States.

NEAT begins its expansion in the United States with key recruits who will help the vegan burger chain and the plant-based meat business to establish a foothold in the United States. At the helm of this expansion is Vincent Herbert, the former CEO of Le Pain Quotidien, who joins the brand as general manager of Neat Burger USA. Additionally, Jeffrey S.

Lewis Hamilton’s Vegan Activism

Hamilton went vegan in 2017 and uses his immense fame to promote animal rights and social justice issues, often taking to social media to urge fans to go vegan. Hamilton also puts his money where he is by investing in vegan businesses, including The Not Company, a Chilean vegan startup that raised $235 million in funding last year with the help of Hamilton and the artist. musical Questlove.

In 2019, Hamilton’s investment in NEAT – created in collaboration with hotel group The Cream Group and Beyond Meat investor Tommaso Chiabara – provided the company with key funding to get it off the ground. Neat Burger opened its flagship location in central London in 2019 before expanding to second and third locations in Camden and Soho, respectively. The brand has grown rapidly and last year, after securing an additional $7 million in a funding round led by SoftBank’s Rajeev Misra, announced massive expansion plans that bring more locations to its domestic market, including through 20 “ghost” kitchens, and taking it globally, starting with the United States.

By 2030, NEAT plans to expand to 1,000 company-owned, franchised and dark kitchens. It also strives to bring next-level, plant-based meat alternatives made with wholesome ingredients, such as its grain blend of quinoa, chickpeas and mung beans, to the retail industry.

“By 2040, we see a world where alternative proteins have completely replaced animal proteins,” Chiabra said in a statement. “NEAT is leading the charge in developing these alternatives that not only satisfy the needs of conscious consumers, but also deliver flavor. We’re here to prove that the simplest choice can also be the best choice for the planet.

Vegan burgers in the USA

Neat Burger’s expansion in the United States comes at a time when local vegan fast food chains are beginning their own expansions to meet a growing demand for plant-based foods – a market that a recent report based on the intelligence by Tastewise estimated at $74 billion. by 2027.

Vegan chain PLNT Burger, owned by celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn of Excellent chef fame—opened its first New York City location in the Union Square neighborhood earlier this year and expanded to Boston this week.

On the West Coast, Plant Power Fast Food San Diego is expanding along the coast with new locations in Los Angeles, Fountain Valley and Sacramento, as well as its first out-of-state location in Las Vegas, NV. Oregon’s organic vegan fast food pioneer, Next Level Burger, is also expanding into multiple states, with an opening in Denver, CO slated for this summer.

A study in North Minneapolis asks the question: do we eat more fast food because we want it or because it is there? https://trois-trente.com/a-study-in-north-minneapolis-asks-the-question-do-we-eat-more-fast-food-because-we-want-it-or-because-it-is-there/ Thu, 21 Apr 2022 15:28:55 +0000 https://trois-trente.com/a-study-in-north-minneapolis-asks-the-question-do-we-eat-more-fast-food-because-we-want-it-or-because-it-is-there/ Queen Frye started questioning her local food landscape from a young age.

Queen Frye started questioning her local food landscape from a young age.

Growing up in North Minneapolis, she concluded that the choices available “conditioned us to eat in certain ways, which predisposed us to health risks.”

Looking at the dozen or so fast food joints on West Broadway today, she still wonders, “Do we want it because that’s how we eat, or do we eat it because it’s here. and what are our options?”

His question is now at the center of a University of Minnesota research project that seeks to “challenge the legacy of fast food outlets in North Minneapolis.”

The work of the Fernando Burga University professor and researcher will explore historical policies and planning documents to explain how and why the area attracted so many fast food outlets and so few other choices.

Whatever the causes, the researchers say the result is a neighborhood that’s less of a “food desert” with no choices and more of a “food swamp” with many unhealthy food options.

“Food swamp research is relatively new, but traveling through North Minneapolis, the phrase makes intuitive sense, as there seems to be an abundance of cheap and convenient food vendors offering items laden with empty calories. “, according to a Federal Reserve report. Bank of Minneapolis.

The negative health consequences of fast food concentration have been documented – food swamps are a clear predictor of higher obesity ratessaid Kristen Cooksey Stowers, a professor at the University of Connecticut and a leading food environments researcher.

“It’s something we should think about, especially if we care about health inequities, health disparities,” she said. “Over time, our neighborhoods and built environments are designed for disease.”

This type of environment is more often found in low-income areas with higher percentages of non-white residents. But Cooksey Stowers said she found that “regardless of the level of income inequality, the food swamp effect persists” – meaning having an abundance of fast food in an area is, to him alone, a predictor of negative health outcomes.

The historic red line, white flight, transportation inequalities, barriers to lending and entrepreneurship for local residents, concentrated poverty, outdated zoning rules and other factors have led to food swamps in d other cities, according to research.

But understanding why North Minneapolis became so populated with fast food restaurants — and who made those decisions — remains unexamined.

Burga said her research goal is “more than just asking the question, finding the answer, and moving on.” It will involve public awareness and input from residents.

“I aim to make it a process that fits the community and makes it useful for them,” he said. “It involves more than just being an academic at university looking into the archives and actually engaging people on their story.”

Frye, co-founder of the R. Roots Urban Gardening Association, said there is a proven demand for a more diverse set of food options found in abundance in other parts of the metro.

“We’ve been talking to young people and they want to see a tropical smoothie or a chipotle or a crisp and green,” she said. “Why don’t we help them have this for their future?”

Frye said she doesn’t want to close restaurants, but rather encourage developers — and residents — to try their luck with alternative options.

“I don’t want it to be, ‘You have to change that now,'” she said. “I want it to be this progressive thing and people don’t even know their lifestyle has changed.”

Appetite For Change has been supporting neighborhood slow food for a decade. The non-profit organization runs the Breaking Bread Cafe and the West Broadway Farmers Market and is keenly interested in what the U study reveals.

“I think there’s a lot of perceptions and misalignments around food values,” said Michelle Horovitz, co-founder and vice president of innovation at Appetite For Change. “People are so used to leaving their community to get what they need and want.”

Horovitz wonders why other parts of Minneapolis and the metro don’t have the same problem.

“You don’t see Edina being inundated with fast food options,” she said.

Frye said the biggest benefit research can bring is knowledge – how the food landscape has been shaped by outside interests and how that may change.

“When you think about your options, you have to think about the history of this neighborhood,” she said. “When people feel like they don’t have power or choice, now I really understand how far it goes – it’s layered and built into the policies.”

Eating a healthy meal on the go isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do. While most fast food restaurants now offer some sort of salad, salad options at these restaurants are limited, and even so, salads are often loaded with sodium and offer very little protein or usable energy for the body. . For anyone looking for more options that will not only satisfy their hunger but keep their body energized, five new restaurants will help solve that problem in the coming months.

Vitality Bowls Superfood Cafe, a healthy Northern California fast food chain, recently agreed to open five new restaurants right here in Tucson. Although there are over 120 sites in the United States, these will be the first five to reach the Old Pueblo. Vitality Bowls Superfood Cafe is under the same management as F45 Workout Gyms which also opened here in Tucson recently. Unlike other gyms in the area, F45 is geared towards personalized training systems, exercises, as well as assisting members with enhanced wellness, which includes dietary information.

Vitality Bowls Superfoods Coffee is about cutting out the unwanted gunk of fast food and focusing on foods and ingredients that will improve everyone’s diet. The menu offers everything from bowls to smoothies, wraps, salads and juices. Customers won’t find greasy or fried foods here. Customers who order a bowl can either create their own from scratch or order one of the bowls from the set menu. For example, the Vitality Bowl comes with a base mix of bananas, strawberries, organic flax seeds, organic acai berries, and Vitality Bowls signature mix. Guests can then add toppings including honey, bananas, more strawberries and bananas, organic granola, organic goji, and a wide list of berries. The different bowls are geared towards different goals for the body. There’s a bowl to help with all-day endurance, or a high-protein bowl to help build and repair muscle.

In terms of wraps and sandwiches, there are also all sorts of options. Some of the wraps and sandwiches to choose from include a Morning Glory (tomato, basil, scrambled eggs, goat cheese and other ingredients), Vitality Wrap (hummus, avocado, super green mix, roasted potatoes, lemon tahini dressing and garlic aioli), Superseed Avocado Toast, Peanut Butter and Chia Toast, and others.

There is no exact date set for the opening of the five new locations, nor any selected locations. However, many will likely open near current F45 workout gyms. To stay informed of when these locations open to the public, be sure to follow Vitality Bowls Superfood Cafe Facebook page.

When was your business created?

Straight Up Fast Food was founded on June 16, 2019.

What did the owners do before starting their own business?

Prior to starting Straight up Fast Food, I worked for Pro Club Clothing, Community Services Unlimited and the latest Whole Foods in the product department. Every job played a part in building the business where at Pro Club I learned a lot about networking, sales and marketing. At Community Services Unlimited, we have set up produce stands around South Central LA and created access and awareness of organic fruits and vegetables. We also grew fruits and vegetables on a small farm outside of USC. Working for Whole Foods, I mainly chop produce, make juice, guacamole and salsa.

A little about why you started your business:

I started Straight Up Fast Food so I could do something I love and have a positive impact on South Central LA. We don’t have many healthy food options in the community. We mainly have fast food restaurants and convenience stores with fries, candies, sodas and sugary energy drinks.

What do you offer?

I sell organic smoothies, cold pressed juices and acai bowls.

What happened during the pandemic? How did you pivot?

During the pandemic, many people wanted healthier food options due to COVID. There was also tremendous support for small businesses. At the time, my hours at Whole Foods were reduced and I focused more on my Straight Up Fast Food. When many businesses were closing, I continued to deliver in the neighborhood and moved my business from the apartment to a cafe for a year. Now I’m stepping out of 5 Star Kitchen LA in Leimert Park.

Where can listeners find your products?

For now they can order on instagram @straightupfastfood or call (323)-831-8433 for delivery. You can also stop for a cold-pressed juice at:
