Generation Z loves unique experiences—and food is no exception. The good news for K-12 operators? One or two ingredients can turn an ordinary meal into a memorable moment. Gen Z actually prefers it this way—while they enjoy new and exciting flavors, they still stick close to their comfort food favorites.
Combining the new and the familiar is called a mashup. The result? Two tastes that create a new food experience. And plenty of brands are getting in on the trend.
IHOP is getting into the fast-casual space with express restaurants called “Flip’d.” Part of their all-day breakfast menu will be a pancake stack mashup loaded with cereals like Lucky Charms™ and Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ as a crunchy topping.
