Are you Ready for Gen Z?

Sep 20, 2016

Millennials. By now, you know they’re the most populist demographic in the United States. And as a foodservice operator, you know you want to figure out how to get them to become a loyal consumer at your restaurant. Maybe you feel you’ve got a grip on this segment, but are you ready for the next generation?


Generation Z is defined as the group that was born before the Millennials – roughly those currently aged 5 to 20 years old. You may be thinking how could there be much of a difference between the two groups and you may be surprised to hear that there are many distinctions (and they actually view themselves different from Millennials).


Here are a few important points to keep in mind regarding the attributes of Gen Z:


– The older ones are just entering college

– They are more cautious with spending their money

– They expect a large variety when it comes to menu offerings

They are reliant on technology

They are seeking fresh and healthy options
