Is The Supermarket The Next Big Food Trend?

Yesterday on our program we talked to a restaurant in Kentucky that has a no-tipping policy — doing away with tipping and instead adding a service charge is one of new food trends that is starting to take off.

The cronut is out and the kale craze may be dying down, but Gary Stibel — the founder and CEO of the New England Consulting Group — tells Here & Now’s Lisa Mullins that new trends are on the horizon.
