"Successful operators are building brands of the future based on high levels of customer service, value for money and freshly cooked food. Today's consumer prefers a casual dining setting with good quality food, often with dishes that can be ordered with friends and shared. Horizons own consumer research has shown that diners like the option of trying something new and their increasing knowledge of world cuisines mean they are seeking authentic dishes when they eat out," said Horizons' director of services Nicola Knight, author of Ones To Watch.
