Pork Chops on the rise in restaurants across the country!

Will the pork chop sandwich dethrone the chicken sandwich as a top menu option in the near future?

According to this 2023 report from Technomic, pork chops may be king soon enough!

-“Fastest-Growing Ingredients” – Pork Chops โ€“ 33.3% increase (a.)

-“Fastest-Growing Lunch/Dinner Dishes” – Pork Chops – 42.9% year-over-year growth (b.)

Pork chops growing at a 33.3% pace year-over-year for the top 500 chains is a very noticeable increase. As beef prices continue to rise, we believe that the pork chop would be a great addition to most menus to give diners another more affordable option.
