Menu Inspiration

Customer Favorites + New Flavors

Share this Post

This year has been all about comfort foods like pizza, burgers, mac and cheese, ice cream, rice bowls, and pasta, but distinguishing your dish goes beyond quality. Streamlined menus add variation to these customer favorites with innovative presentation, unique flavor additions, and plenty of global condiments.

  • The nostalgia of creamy mac and cheese might lure them in, but the craveable additions like charred Ready-Set-Serve™ by Markon broccolini, bruléed cheese, caramelized Markon® onions, even jalapeno poppers with Cheetos will keep them ordering again.
  • Thai tea, ginger, and matcha add dimension to frozen desserts and creamy custards.
  • Pizza will always reign supreme in the delivery segment. Some have gone molto autentico with heirloom tomatoes, roasted Markon First Crop® eggplant, fresh Markon First Crop basil, and the perfect crust, while others have gone fusion fabulous by adding unlikely toppings such as mashed potatoes or Bountiful Harvest® mangos with chile peppers.
  • Pimiento cheese, that old-school Southern classic, has boomed! Use real roasted red bell peppers and quality cheese. Try add-ins like pickle juice, spicy chiles, roasted garlic, or charred green onions.
  • Try melding American-Chinese flavors such as kung pao, General Tso’s, and sweet & sour into side dishes (especially with Markon cauliflower, potatoes, and Brussels sprouts, as well as salad dressings and dips).
  • Burger and chicken sandwiches, whether plant- or meat-based continue to be blank slates—pile on the produce!
