Taking Comfort Food to a New Level

Comfort Food is Always a Favorite

Comfort food has always been a popular choice for diners looking for a satisfying and filling meal. But in recent years, there has been a resurgence in the popularity of comfort foods, driven by changing consumer preferences and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Village Inn, with its focus on traditional American fare, all-day breakfast menu, and spectacular pies, is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this trend.

Why Comfort Food?

Comfort food is any type of food that brings a sense of nostalgia and emotional well-being to the eater. It’s the food we turn to when we’re feeling down or homesick, the food that reminds us of family gatherings and special occasions. Comfort food can take many forms, from fried potatoes, cheesy eggs and bacon, or a sweet slice of pie.

With so much uncertainty and stress in the world, people are craving the simple pleasures of life. Comfort food provides a sense of familiarity and comfort, a reminder of happier times. In addition, the pandemic led to many people spending more time at home and cooking meals themselves, leading to a rediscovery of classic comfort dishes.

According to the Kerry 2023 Global Taste and Nutrition Charts, the prediction for what foods are trending includes seeking out favorite classing meals. “Indulgence, in particular, will take on new meaning as younger consumers seek out comforting, familiar foods of their youth. But also on the menu are affordable comforts, such as indulging in what Kerry says are nostalgic favorites.”

Village Inn Meets the Demand

It’s safe to say that comfort foods are timeless and never going out of style. This creates a massive demand for reliable, yet delicious comfort foods.
