11 Trend Predictions in 2015 That Will Shape the Restaurant Industry

11 Trend Predictions in 2015 That Will Shape the Restaurant Industry | SocialMediaRestaurants.com | Scoop.it
By Paul Barron, CEO and Founder of DigitalCoCo, Foodable WebTV and the
Restaurant Social Media Index

Last year, my predictions surrounded more digital and social media areas,
but the reality for the restaurant business is that social and digital are
now integrated so tightly today that its impact is all-encompassing in the
overall business strategy. Thankfully, we have reached the realization that
the digital and social consumer and brand is here to stay.

Accurate Predictions of 2014

My winners last year were the predictions that OpenTable would get
challenged for the first time. And with launches like Resy and Reserve,
along with premium services like I Know The Chef and Haute Dining, there
seems to be a new landscape appearing for the reservation side of our
business.

Additionally, I made the call on Apple Pay — that Apple would soon have a
major role in dining out. Though my prediction that McDonald’s would
surpass Starbucks in the social media reach was correct, McDonald’s seems
to have squandered away the value of what this new explosion of audience
can mean to their brand.

I was seven for 10 last year, my second year over 70%, so it’s clear I need
to step up the challenge of going bolder and risk a bit more on my
predictions. This year is a list of overall impact on the restaurant
business as a whole. I focus this year not just on digital and social
impact, but the impact of other key areas around upscale dining, sourcing
and new age consumerism.
