1. Buy Quality: Even if you feature prepared foods on the menu, make sure you buy from reliable vendors. Quality counts when it comes to everything from ingredients to entrees. Visitors who are considering how much money to spend expect quality for their money, especially in tougher economic times.
  2. Think Differently: Incorporate regional flavors into the menu. While visitors may enjoy foods they know, they’re also likely to step outside their comfort zones to taste regional cuisine that’s packaged, marketed and delivered in a fun and affordable way.
  3. Go Portable: Families on the go may not always take the time to sit down for a traditional meal, especially at amusement parks where kids want to make it to the next attraction before dark. Try offering finger foods and dishes that are portable enough to eat on the go, like kabobs and other barbecue foods that don’t necessarily require a bib.
