Green Bay, Wis. – As pizza aficionados eagerly anticipate the year ahead, the AK Pizza Crust team unveils the ultimate guide to revolutionizing the pizza industry in The State of the Pizza Nation 2024. Drawing insights from consumer cravings, global influences, and emerging trends, this comprehensive trend report serves as a roadmap to elevate pizza offerings, capture customer loyalty, and drive profitability for restaurants, retailers, and convenience stores.
“Pizza is an American classic,” says Luke Siedow, Corporate Chef at AK Pizza Crust. “On average, nearly half of consumers eat pizza every week, and individually they are munching through over 150 slices a year. Post-pandemic, more folks are looking for unique experiences, and are heading back to restaurants—craving that perfect slice of pizza along with their dine-in experience.”
The research and development team at AK Pizza Crust is always innovating to offer products that align with emerging industry trends, giving their customers valuable tools to help them grow their businesses. Predictions for the pizza industry in 2024 include a focus on food as a status symbol, consumer interest in replicating posh experiences through “dupes,” and an emphasis on food as a form of self-expression. Generational eating trends, from Gen Alpha to Baby Boomers, provide invaluable insights for tailoring menus and creating experiences that resonate with diverse preferences.
