Restaurant Trends to Prep For in 2022

The daily dinner rush isn’t the only thing you need to prep for.

COVID brought remarkable transformation to the restaurant industry, and these changes show no sign of slowing down now. As we enter 2022, COVID remains present, labor is still touch-and-go, and technology continues to impact prep, ordering, customer service, and really all aspects of the dining experience.

We’ve surveyed the landscape, met with customers, and attended events with innovators across the industry (and even overseen a few presentations ourselves!). As a result, we have some key insights into what you can expect the restaurant industry to go through in 2022.

If the last couple years have taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected, so anything could of course change on a dime due to unforeseen circumstances. But based on what we know now, these are the restaurant trends you can expect to see in 2022.
