Success does leave clues. One success clues that is a key driver of the booming grocerant niche is that consumer’s allotment of time trumps price when calculating meal purchase. Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru® presented research at the SJU Food Summit 2015 that found “at noon 83% of households do not know what’s for dinner and at 4 PM 69% still don’t know what’s for dinner.
One thing is clear; families are looking for dinner solutions every day. Recently a conference titled, Marketing to Mom’s was held in Chicago and while we were not surprise with the findings we think you will be. The number one finding from the conference; “Mom’s biggest Frustration is Dinner!”
Regular followers of this blog know that the study found that “Moms are faking it while Quietly Freaking Out”. In fact 82% of Moms believe that brands can help them out. We agree. All food retailers need to be focusing on Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat meal solutions.
Even more reveling might be the second insight reveled in the report that was that Moms are far more “digital than ever before spending 25 hours a week online.” In fact a “full 81% of moms report they are more likely to order online if there is some sort of loyalty / reward point system.” Where is your brand being viewed and by whom?
Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru® also revealed that bundling meal components that can be customized into a personalized family meal is the key factor driving the successful growth of the grocerant niche. The battle for share of stomach at dinnertime is well underway everyday by noon.
