From the consumer of the future to the unique vegan canteen | Piqniq Pack—Part 4

The vegan diet is gaining ground, but can a canteen tuned exclusively to plant-based ingredients work in the long run? How can we run our business if the initial enthusiasm fades, we take off the rose-colored glasses and the challenging weekdays begin? What should we pay attention to if we also serve fish in our restaurant? How can a gastronomy company keep pace with consumer expectations? All these are important questions, and will be answered by Part 4 of our Piqniq pack series!

PODCAST: Consumer of the future: Guest demand—guest experience

Consumption patterns are constantly changing, and it is a challenge for any business to reach an audience. Do the guest’s expectations shape the restaurant, or does the restaurant need to show the way to the consumer to recognize what they actually need? How can a gastronomy business prepare if it wants to provide an experience for the people of the future?

In the fourth podcast of Piqniq Budapest, our guests are Endre Eölyüs, regional manager of Mastercard, and Szilárd Gréczi, who has been an employee and store manager of an iconic Budapest café for seven years. We discussed with them the question of how a business should keep pace with consumer expectations.

VIDEO: Canteen exclusively on plant bases: The Planteen—rethought canteen

The popularity of the vegan diet is growing worldwide among consumers. More and more domestic gastronomy companies are realizing that this trend cannot and should not be ignored, and there should be room for these dishes in the selection. The operation of a canteen using only plant-based ingredients, on the other hand, is a bold venture, there is no domestic example of it, and The Planteen team is an innovator even in Europe with the idea. In our video, the founder, the CEO and the lead chef talk about what they base the success of the business on, what they want to pass on to their guests, and what approach is worth getting into such a project with.
