Every sector of retail is experiencing accelerated growth while finding success within the ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat fresh prepared food niche aka the grocerant niche. Last week we learned that in California the El Cerrito Natural Grocery is expanding remodeling the store next door to include a café that will offer fresh prepared ready-2-eat sandwiches, salads, pizza, baked goods, coffee, espresso drinks.
The café / food-service counters will offer a variety of natural meals, snacks that can be eaten on site or pre-ordered and picked up for to-go. El Cerrito Natural Grocery is “Basically we're going to be able to offer all the things we haven't been able to offer in the store," stated Robin Valerie Low, of El Cerrito Natural Grocery.
The menu offerings “includes a cafe with coffee, tea and hot chocolate with multiple flavors of hot chocolate including Mexican, Peruvian, a bakery section, made-to-order and ready-made sandwiches, fresh pizza, salads, a cheese shop, a wine and beer shop, and an ice cream counter. There'll also be rotisserie chicken and daily "blue plate special" meals, Low said. There will be seating with a view of the hills as well.
