Foodservice in Retail - US - October 2017
"A strong foodservice program has become a differentiator within the highly competitive grocery retailing industry. Retailers are positioning themselves as foodservice destinations, offering trendy dishes or partnering with growing restaurant concepts for restaurants within a store. The lines between retailer and restaurant are continuing to blur, presenting an opportunity for retailers and a strong competitive threat to restaurants. A store’s foodservice program not only caters to consumers’ need for convenience, it also provides them with a unique, fun shopping experience."
