US Foods has announced the launch of Fall Scoop, the company’s 10th annual edition. Themed, “Next-Gen Ideas for Next-Gen Diners,” Fall Scoop features 23 products that cater to the next generation of diners, Gen Z and Millennials, the largest age group of diners who can drive important revenue opportunities for operators.
This generation of diners is looking for menu items with a twist, sustainable and meatless items and social media-worthy presentations.
“We’re bringing fresh ideas to our operators that provide the labor savings and versatility they need today with the innovation they’ll need moving forward as they cater to the next generation of diners,” says Stacey Kinkaid, vice president, product development and innovation, US Foods. “To support our Fall Scoop theme, ‘Next-Gen Ideas for Next-Gen Diners,’ we also incorporated feedback from our very own US Foods Scholars. US Foods Scholars are Gen Z and Millennial culinary students who have won scholarships and professional development opportunities from US Foods to fulfill their culinary education. It was exciting to watch them engage with the products and reinforce our insights.”
One of the important categories in the Fall Scoop is Products Inspired by Social Media. This includes delectable desserts with great visual presentation. Among the desserts offered in this category are:
- Devonshire Raspberry Donut Cheesecake – A raspberry and donut-flavored cheesecake with a graham cracker crust and topped with raspberry filling, crumbled donuts, powdered sugar and whipped cream
- Chef’s Line Iced Pumpkin Swirl Loaf Cake – Made with real pumpkin and a blend of pumpkin spice, vanilla cake swirl and topped with vanilla icing. Comes in individually wrapped, retail-ready packages
- Chef’s Line Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie – A brownie made with a fudgy center, dark chocolate chunks, caramel bits and the perfect amount of salt and caramel drizzle. Comes frozen and can be thawed and served as needed
“Our generation tries new dishes based on social media. We are a ‘trending’ generation’,” says Angel’o Hill, US Foods Scholar.
