Customizable Italian Menus

The Create Your Own Tour of Italy Menu Lets Diners Customize Their Meal

— July 7, 2016 — Lifestyle
Similar to Red Lobster's 'Create Your Own Seafood Trio' promotion, Olive Garden is launching its own customizable menu called 'Create Your Own Tour of Italy.' In recent years, there has been a growing demand for more flexible menus and opportunities to create custom dishes. The new Olive Garden menu allows customers to personalize their meal by choosing three of their favorite dishes.

The Create Your Own Tour of Italy menu allows diners to choose three classic Olive Garden dishes from a curated menu for just $12.99. Diners must first choose a 'Specialty,' which includes options such as Eggplant Parmigiana and Lasagna Classico. Then they can choose at 'Premium Pasta' such as Cheese Ravioli or Tortellini Al Forno. Finally, diners can round out their meal with one of two 'Signature Pastas.' The Italian trio also comes with unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks just like an other Olive Garden meal.
Trend Themes
1. Customizable Menus - Restaurants are offering more customizable menus, allowing diners to tailor their dining experience to their preferences and needs.
2. Curated Menus - Curated menus are becoming more popular, allowing customers to select from a pre-selected list of dishes instead of a traditional menu.
3. Premium Dishes - Restaurants are offering premium dishes in customizable menus, allowing diners to indulge in higher-end options while still personalizing their meals.
Industry Implications
1. Restaurant Industry - Restaurants can take advantage of the trend towards customizable menus to stand out in a competitive market by offering personalized dining experiences that meet the diverse needs and preferences of their customers.
2. Hospitality Industry - Hotels and other hospitality businesses can incorporate customizable menus into their food and beverage offerings, such as room service and catered events, to create unique, memorable experiences for their guests.
3. Food Industry - Food companies can partner with restaurants to develop pre-packaged meal kits or specialty ingredient bundles that allow customers to customize their at-home dining experiences with restaurant-quality dishes.
