Now that you have decided which kind of food challenge you want to host in your restaurant, it’s time to select the type of challenge you want to host which is typically a pretty easy decision. There are 28 basic types of food challenges that you can create in your restaurant. All 28 show up on the Map Search and they are all separated as “types” because eaters need to have a different strategy for each particular type. The types are all self explanatory so I have not written an kind of specific article about them, and therefore here is a list of them:

    • Asian (Asian foods not including soups or sushi)
    • BBQ (also includes chicken parm challenges)
    • Breakfast
    • Burger
    • Burrito
    • Calzone
    • Dessert
    • Greek (gyros)
    • Hispanic (Mexican foods not including tacos or burritos)
    • Hot Dog
    • Ice Cream
    • Irish (bangers & mash, shepherd’s pie, etc…)
    • Milkshake
    • Nacho
    • Omelet
    • Pancake
    • Pasta
    • Pizza
    • Potato (baked potatoes, poutine, etc…)
    • Sandwich
    • Seafood (also includes schnitzel challenges)
    • Spicy
    • Soup (pho and ramen soups)
    • Steak
    • Sushi
    • Taco
    • Team (any challenge with 2 or more people)
  • Wing (does not include extra spicy wing challenges)

As you can can see, the type of challenge is basically the food that you want to serve. When added to the database, your challenge will be added and classified under 1 of these 28 different types. Most restaurant owners already have a pretty good idea of what type of challenge they want to have, which is why I have listed picking the kind of challenge before picking the type of challenge, since the challenge kind is a much more difficult decision. The most important thing to remember when selecting the challenge type is that the challenge needs to represent your restaurant’s menu and attitude. It is pretty silly for a hot dog joint to start a burger challenge, and it is also silly for a Mexican restaurant to start a burger challenge. Select a challenge type that represents your restaurant and your menu, and marketing your food challenge will be much easier.

Thanks for reading why the type of food challenge is the second detail you must establish!!

Now that you have selected your challenge type, please go to step 3.
