Eating-In while Eating-Out was identified by Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru® Steven Johnson as a consumer food trend back in 2013. Today meal kit companies, prepared meal companies, and restaurants are all competing to be the restaurant meal on the dining room table according to Johnson.
David Portalatin, vice president of the NPD Group and a food industry analyst stated “consumers are less concerned with where they eat than with getting what they want when they want it” at the 54th annual IFMA Presidents Conference this week in Scottsdale, AZ this week as attendees were encouraged to "take the restaurant into the consumer's home."
That’s right consumers like Eating-In while Eating-Out once again we were first with the insights, we were right. Today we continue to lead research findings within the grocerant niche. The team at Foodservice Solutions® continues to excel within the grocerant niche.
Portalatin continued at IMFA stating “the number of meals per capita that are eaten on premise at a restaurant are at an all-time low for the fourth consecutive year. He said restaurant meals are eaten at home 40% of the time.”
