Across the nation, millions start their day with a bowl of cereal. At lunch, a bowl of soup is staple. At dinner, entrées are flattened out as plates replace bowls—but not anymore. Check the menus of quick service and casual chains, full service restaurants and convenience stores. Bowls have moved from the breakfast table to dominate every menu type and daypart. Customers find bowls warm, comfortable, approachable. Creative operators can fill them with an endless variety of classic, contemporary, ethnic, vegetarian/vegan, sweet or savory ingredient blends 24/7/365.
