If you think having potato wedges and roasted eggplants listed on your menu is enough to call your place vegetarian friendly, think again. Be it for cultural or ideological reasons, more and more people claim to be vegetarians. Despite this trend on the rise, most restaurants still offer very limited vegetarian options, if any.
We have a vegetarian person in our team and we can tell how laborious it gets to find a place to eat. We select restaurants we visit based on the vegetarian options they offer – and sadly, we have to turn down many of them.
Don’t do the same mistake. Think about all these customers you might be loosing because you don’t offer interesting vegetarian options! And think about all the customers you might attract if you were to change that.
Vegetarian meals don’t have to be complicated, nor boring. Why would they be? So many vegetables and other ingredients available for you to use! Get creative and expand your menu with exciting vegetarian recipes. If you need some inspiration, have a look at the Seasonal Good Guide website and find out what fruits and vegetables are in season in your region. Alternatively, you can have a look online and find hundreds of recipes. We came across the SBS website listing quite exciting recipes. Check it out here.
Start introducing (appealing) vegetarian options to your menu and attract more customers. And since it’s a great selling point, make sure you let everyone know. See our previous blog listing different ways to communicate with your customers.
