Anne-Claire Paré is the French reference when it comes to international trends for restaurants.
In 2003, she created the first guide on catering/foodservice trends, entitled INSPIRESTO. This guide has since been regularly republished and completed by articles on fast food, table service restaurants and, more recently, New York concepts.
According to clients of Anne-Claire’s consulting firm Bento, the method of analysis and high-quality presentation of these guides makes them decisive tools for any restaurant seeking to devise and promote foodservice products and concepts.
The Bento firm offers excellent intelligence on restaurants throughout the world, with expert opinion-leader correspondents working in a number of big cities. The firm pursues an ongoing analysis of hundreds of specialist or generalist publications, and has built up a database over more than 10 years that is unique in terms of its breadth and effectiveness.
It assists industry leaders such as Accor, Fauchon, le Printemps, Il Ristorante, La Criée, Elior, Sodexo and Sodebo, among others, with promoting or implementing innovative, lasting foodservice concepts.
