Here’s how operators can incorporate crowd-pleasing burgers into new menu items while maintaining efficiency.

Burger Trends

Burgers are a long-standing fan favorite in restaurants. According to Statista, hamburgers and cheeseburgers were the most popular American dish in 2022. They are a classic canvas for culinary innovation and reflect evolving consumer preferences. By keeping up with burger trends, restaurants can attract a wider audience while retaining loyal customers.

Including a new and unique burger recipe on the menu demonstrates a commitment to freshness, creativity, and responsiveness to changing tastes. It allows operators to capitalize on seasonal ingredients, dietary shifts, and cultural influences, ensuring menu relevance and profitability.

The key lies in finding the perfect balance between innovation and practicality, ensuring that the burger offerings remain trendy and operationally efficient.

TNT Beef Patties 

TNT Burgers are trusted premium foodservice patties that customers have proven they love. Curion Beef Patty Claims says TNT has the highest customer satisfaction among competing brands, with a 92 percent satisfaction rate. 

TNT offers high-performance, low-maintenance burgers that are efficient for back-of-house and have the flavor to meet the most discerning tastes in efficient individual quick frozen (IQF) patties. IQF technology locks in the meat’s fresh flavor without preservatives, ensuring reliable and consistent burgers. The convenience of cooking from frozen drastically reduces prep time and labor costs. In a recent sensory evaluation, the CPNA R&D Internal Sensory Panel found that 63 percent of consumers preferred frozen patties over fresh. This innovation empowers restaurants to streamline their operations without compromising quality and taste. 

“We like the TNT beef patties because the taste is great, and the consistency is top-notch,” says the team from Bantam Chef in South Carolina.

Expertly Seasoned

Every TNT Burger is expertly seasoned to elevate the natural beef taste. The right-off-the-grill flavor and freshly cooked juiciness create an irresistible taste that leaves customers craving another.

“The best part of the TNT patties is the flavor! Our customers love our burgers and sliders, and we have no plans to change them,” says the team from The Pour House in California. 

Versatility is key to meeting diverse customer preferences, and TNT Burgers offers just that. With a wide range of options in terms of shapes, sizes, and grinds, operators have the creative freedom to build a burger menu that caters to all tastes. Whether a homestyle seasoned patty or an Angus mini patty, TNT Burgers has the perfect patty to fit your vision and delight your customers.

Regional Style Burgers 

Social media platforms and the rise of “foodie culture” brought attention to regional burgers. Consumers share their culinary adventures online, inspiring others to seek unique burger experiences. The Datassential Burger Report found a big urge to experiment with new ingredients and fun flavors, particularly among millennials and Gen Z. Their adventurous nature loves unusual carriers and global condiments. Regional burgers align with this trend by offering exciting and unconventional flavor profiles that people are eager to try. 

Restaurants hopping on this trend need a patty that is consistent and flavorful. The TNT beef patties have the beef flavor customers know and love and are convenient without sacrificing quality, making them a perfect option for experimenting with new toppings.

A popular combination today is a Southern-style pimento cheese bacon burger. The TNT pimento cheeseburger is a tasty grilled burger topped with tomato, bacon, lettuce, grilled onion, and TNT burger pimento cheese, served on a pretzel bun. The TNT burger patty works perfectly along these southern flavors.

Lettuce Wraps 

Lettuce-wrapped or protein-style burgers have gained popularity due to their versatility and health-conscious appeal. Offering a satisfying and customizable burger experience, they appeal to many diners and align with dietary preferences such as low-carb and keto.

Without the balance and flavors of the bun, the meat plays a huge role in the overall attractiveness of the burger. Because TNT patties are seasoned with a blend of spices that elevate the meat’s natural flavors, they are the perfect choice for the lettuce wrap. 

TNT is the original premium foodservice patty that offers unbeatable taste, superior performance, convenience, and variety. TNT patties are the perfect choice for restaurants that want to meet the ever-changing flavor preferences of customers. 

“We are very impressed with the TNT patties’ consistency, quality, and hold time. TNT patties are the best choice for our restaurant,” says the team from Michaels Charcoal Grill.
