Menurama provides a detailed overview of the UK’s changing menus and helps manufacturers and operators to identify established and upcoming menu trends, key price points, operator gap analysis and much more.
Menurama provides the detailed insight that will help drive your:
- Market positioning: How do your dishes, products, pricing and overall offering compare to what your competitors are doing?
- Gap analysis: Are there any dishes or price points not being offered to diners that you can exploit? Are you offering as many options as your competitors?
- NPD programme: What dishes, flavours, formats warrant additional NPD activity – and what priority should you give to each development?
- Range analysis: How many dishes of each course are being offered?
- Range detail: What types of dishes are being offered in terms of main protein, sauce etc.?
- Brand analysis: Broken down by brand what are all the elements (pricing, dish range, marketing messages) that consumers are being offered?
- Brand architecture: What are the entry, average and top dish prices being charged?
- Promotional activity: Which deals are competitors offering to entice consumers and how do yours compare? How are particular dishes being promoted on menus?
- Consumer driver messages: What messages are operators including on their menus to help consumers make their dish choice – sustainability, local/British, organic, healthy eating, provenance, quality statements, suitable for vegetarians, wheat free etc.?
- Menu evolution and innovation: Which dishes are recently added to menus and which have disappeared?
