Restaurateurs, Tip your hat at the Pub, Wegmans that is!

Following in the steps of Grocery stores operator Publix’s with free standing restaurant chain Crispers and much copied highly successful foodservice/Grocerant Convenience store Sheetz; Wegmans is opening within it’s large foot print store a full-service restaurant. Wegmans was listed in our Top 6 Grocerants for 2009 previously. If this test goes well, can a free standing unit be far behind. Wegmans already an industry leader in Grocery and industry Icon in prepared ready-to-eat and ready-heat-food is taking the next logical step.

Grocery stores have the ability to leverage both there buying power and distribution system like no one except the top five restaurant companies can. Given the blatant lack of innovation on the restaurant side of food service for the past 4 years; combined with copy-cat product development and bandwagon marketing, is it any wonder why the restaurant industry is closing so many units? Do you understand the under-currents of the industry today? Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions does.
