With the average household reportedly spending $3000 a year dining out, local restaurants are looking to offer the most popular foods to attract more customers. According to FarmFlavor.com, chicken is the most popular food served on the menu nationally outside of salads. Steve Geurts, owner of the Grove Food & Spirits in Kewaunee, says he has definitely seen an increased demand for chicken dishes at his establishment. He says that chicken offers flexibility in cooking many different entrees.
Geurts says he plans on expanding with more chicken choices and that he goes through nearly 100 pounds of chicken every week.
