Aside from the higher price, chains such as Applebee’s and Ruby Tuesday have a difficult time adding new items, Munson said.

He sees dishes such as his popular artichoke and sweet onion salad as a tasty side on any menu.

“If there’s any activity, it’s going to be on the fine dining side where chefs have more independence,” he said, “but that’s not where a lot of our food dollars go.”

Sarah Seebran, director of marketing for Glennville, Ga.-based Bland Farms, agrees price is a barrier to getting more sweet onions into restaurants outside Georgia, where everyone gets caught up in Vidalia fever in the spring and summer.
