Menuing Grain Bowls

3 Great Reason To Offer Grain Bowls

  • According to Datassential, 25% of all entrées in commercial restaurants are bowls—up 28% over the past four years. Rice/grain bowls in particular have grown a whopping 89% over the past four years. Datassential SNAP™, 2018
  • They’re customizable. Millennials and younger diners love the ability to “have it their way.” Build-your-own bowl concepts give them the freedom to mix and match their favorite flavors easily.
  • They’re profitable. While bowls are popular enough to command relatively high prices, their main ingredients—grains and vegetables are low-cost items. Options for proteins and other premium toppings give you an opportunity to upcharge.

Basics of Bowl Building

Choose Your Base Grain

The base grains constitute the bulk of the bowl to minimize overall product cost.

Pick Your Protein

Proteins boost your bowls’ perceived value and pricing power. A few strips of beef, chicken, pork, lamb, salmon or tofu are all you need. Offer extra protein for an upcharge!

Top ’til You Drop 

Toppings provide additional color. Consider avocado, cheese, feta and toasted nuts

Don’t Forget The Secret Sauce

They’re the key addition that binds all of the other ingredients together in a tasty harmony.
