According to NPD Group, although foodservice spending has been increasing —up two percent in the year ending May 2018 —foodservice visits were flat during that same period compared to one year ago.1 This trend is largely championed by millennials, who are searching for quick and easy takeout meals, and the increased competition from “grocerants” means restaurants need to think about ways to stay relevant.
One way to cater to this growing demand is by offering readymade, chef-inspired retail takeout options. Create a menu that’s both delicious and economical–large batch recipes that can be either refrigerated or frozen in pre-portioned containers for customer pickup and delivery.
