Food Genius Publishes Mediterranean Menu Trends and Insights Data Report for Full of Foodservice Industry Analytics.


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 14, 2015

Food Genius, the leading foodservice data provider specializing in gathering, preparing, and serving granular foodservice menu data and analytics, has published a new monthly industry analytics presentation focused on one of America’s most common cuisine types. Mediterranean cuisine has been growing in popularity over the last number of years in part thanks to the successful growth of new quick casual operators like Zoe’s kitchens and the massive rise of the Greek yogurt category. Food Genius decided to focus their regular monthly menu data analytics around this cuisine and has some interesting takeaways for those in the restaurant industry who are thinking about how to incorporate Mediterranean ingredients and flavors into their offerings.

Mediterranean Menu Trends and Insights, Food Genius’ data presentation details analytics on what ingredients, dishes, proteins, and dressings are most commonly utilized within Mediterranean cuisine in the US. With an emphasis on plant-based ingredients, health experts recently promoted Mediterranean cuisine as a healthy and well-balanced diet that could curb memory loss as the brain ages.

With consumers maintaining focus on healthy restaurant options, Food Genius believes there are opportunities for non-Mediterranean operators to think about how they too can incorporate Mediterranean-inspired flavors or ingredients that consumers will gravitate towards.

Key insights from Food Genius’ Report:


    Hummus is only featured on 14% of all menus nationwide, but 75% of Mediterranean menus
    Lamb appears to be more established as a distinctly Mediterranean ingredient in its application, than in most other cuisines.
    The average price of Mediterranean entrees across the US is $ 7.48

NovaStor, an international provider of award-winning data protection solutions, recently announced its charter membership of the Elastic Computing Alliance (ECA), an ecosystem of organizations focused on delivering innovative data center products, services and technologies.

“The transformation to data centers that are software-defined is already under way, but complexity has been a key inhibitor,” said Rocky Bullock, CEO of NIMBOXX, which established the Elastic Computing Alliance. “Customers expect and deserve integrated technologies and the onus is on vendors to make this happen. The goal of the ECA is to reduce complexity, remove existing barriers and make software-defined data centers accessible to businesses of all sizes.”

NovaStor joined the ECA to work with like-minded innovators to create and grow data center technologies in order to deliver greater value and functionality to the user. A key factor of developing a forward looking and user-oriented data protection solution is to bring the benefits of the datacenter to businesses of all sizes through the use of powerful yet simple software technologies, and further protect their critical business data.
