With February approaching people across the United States are making plans for two big events related to the snack and dessert menu type: the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day.chocolate-pretzels

These events seem like they’re worlds apart, but in fact they have at least one thing in common: food. While sports fans across the United States are prepping their jerseys and making game day party menus, couples are undoubtedly making dinner reservations or perhaps looking up recipes to make a special meal for their sweetheart at home. One thing many of these meals will have in common is the ending – plenty of decadent desserts and sweet snacks are sure to finish the evening.

Where are these consumers buying their snacks and indulging in sweet treats? With information for 1.3 million operators, CHD Expert’s Easy2FIND foodservice database has the answer.
