Dairy in Restaurants

More Dairy, More Customers

When eating outside the home, consumers crave comfort, convenience, and an experience – all things dairy can help deliver. Since 2019, dairy-centric menu items like burrito bowls, cheese bread/breadsticks, macaroni and cheese, and other comfort items have shown double-digit growth in orders across eating establishments in the U.S. In fact, 38% of on-premises and 33% of off-premises customers say their restaurant choices will be influenced by whether the menus include the comfort foods they crave!

As consumers increase their dining out experiences, whether at fast-casual or fine-dining, dairy helps restaurants meet their customers expectations. Discover how Midwest Dairy has partnered with restaurants throughout our 10-state region to extend the reach of their promotions, reduce the cost of customer acquisition, create effective limited time offers, utilize dairy farmer voices and stories, and so much more.
