Diners ordering more Comfort foods

Surging demand for comfort foods made a comeback in the area and beyond in 2020.  According to Grubhub's Year in Food report, the past years have seen growth in the vegan and vegetarian options as diners' preference. This past year saw comfort food orders, like the spicy chicken sandwich, increase in popularity by a whopping 318 percent nationally.  Locally, Wanda Hilsabeck of Wanda Jeans Family Restaurant in Sturgeon Bay says she never dreamt that orders for her new spicy chicken sandwich would be in such great demand.



Hilsabeck adds that other popular comfort foods flying out of the kitchen are meatloaf, burgers, and chicken tenders.   Grubhub reported that restaurant orders for chicken wings, waffle fries, and roast beef sandwiches also saw considerable increases in 2020.  Apple pie topped the popularity for dessert dishes with a rise of 330 percent.
