There are many things that you can do to set yourself up for success. Working hard, having a good attitude and setting goals are all very important. However, one of the keys to success is creativity. Your ability to take lemons and make them into something even better than lemonade. Your drive to ask the question “what could I do differently that would have a big impact?”. How creative you can be may just equal how much success you see.

In food service, how can your concept be creative enough to grab business? What types of innovative promotions or call-outs can you do to get people ordering more on each ticket? How can your recipes be unique enough that people feel like they must try them?

Here are some creative recipes to get you inspired:
