The sandwich generation - building the perfect sammie from bread to fillings
Canadians love their sammies. Nearly two-thirds of Canadian restaurant operators (63.6%) include sandwiches on their menus, according to Technomic. Sales data reveal diners adore their favourites, and there is also a big appetite for new temptations that go beyond the usual (think turkey club), while limited time offers help drive traffic.
According to the Coffee Association of Canada, coffee is the most commonly consumed beverage among Canadians. In fact, in 2017, 71% of Canadians, aged 18 to 79, consumed more coffee than tap and bottled water, tea, alcohol, milk beverages, juice, pop and other drinks. That’s a lot of joe!
Beverages aren’t just about thirst quenching anymore; they’re also about health and refreshment. Twists on tried and true drinks and global infusions are increasingly popular. Drinks are also morphing into meal supplements with protein additives, combined with healthy fruits, a trend being fuelled by the growth of fresh pressed juice bars.
