With ten times the quantitative coverage of other menu databases, Datassential MenuTrends™ stands alone in accuracy.
Are this many menus really necessary? You bet. Smaller databases are prone to erroneous projections; simply put, they often detect "trends" that don't actually exist. In most cases, food trends move only a few percentage points each year – typically falling within the wide margins of error associated with smaller databases. This means "trends" that they report as up could in actuality be flat or even down.
Bigger is just the start. For reliable data, you don't just need a larger sample, you need a much larger sample that's representative as well. And that's how we designed MenuTrends™ from the ground up – with thousands of chains and independents that mirror the actual distribution of restaurants across the US.
