Two Chicks, Three Seats Episode 52: July Trend Report on Summer Cocktails, Cooking, Outdoor Dining, Marketing, and Event Trends


There have been all sorts of trends that have appeared in the hospitality and events industry over the past year. We went through the phase of COVID trends, like takeout kits and virtual experiences, then into the limited dining phase with plexiglass barriers to divide tables, and now in July of 2021, we are in the most normal spot we have been at in a long time. Life almost feels normal again. We have seen some great trends so far and are excited to continue looking out for more through the rest of the summer season.

In this episode of Tripleseat’s podcast, Two Chicks, Three Seats, my co-host Kate Kennedy and I take a look at all of the July trends in the hospitality industry. Who doesn’t love summer trends?! We discuss delicious summer cocktail recipes, food recipes to cook at home or offer at your restaurant, outdoor dining trends to look out for, major marketing tips, and event trends. If you want to be in the loop on all the summer trends, take a listen for yourself!
