A Look At This Year's Top Restaurant Trends: Cannabis, Craft And Casual
Back in January, The National Restaurant Association released its annual list of top trends in the restaurant and food industry. Drink companies are looking to get in on the cannabis craze, with companies looking at possibilities for adding the substance to everything from beer to spirits to water. Even Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO) is cannabis-curious. Other companies that could be big on this trend include brewer Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) and The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER). Who's In On It? So far, offerings in restaurants are very small and tough to measure, and publicly traded companies are treading cautiously with marijuana and CBD, which still isn't approved for use in food and drinks by the FDA.
