The number one protein in the US, Americans consumed 90lbs of chicken per-person in 2015.
In a recent survey conducted by the National Chicken Council, 7 in 10 people surveyed had eaten chicken at a foodservice establishment within the last 2 weeks. When asked why, the number one reason was that they preferred the taste (over home cooking.) The versatility and popularity of chicken make it a fantastic choice for creating signature menu items with wide appeal.
Chicken isn’t the only popular poultry customers are craving more of. Turkey consumption has nearly doubled over the past 30 years. Customers want the health benefits of turkey as a low-fat, high-protein source, and also love its great taste. While operators and chefs love its cooking versatility.
