Who does not want to live a complexity free lifestyle? No of the surest ways to reduce complexity today is by buying grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food according to Steven Johnson, Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®.
Today every sector of retail foodservice is experiencing the greatest growth from grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food that is portable including chain restaurants, grocery store, and convenience stores according to Johnson.
Differentiation in retail foodservice does not mean different it means familiar but with a twist according to Johnson. Well, according to a 2018 by EuroMonitor the new wave of Millennial customer eating habits is not so new as it includes many of the same things their parents ate including vegan options, palo / Atkins, gluten free, and organic’s but the new twist is most all meals and meal components are now portable according to Johnson.
7-Eleven is well-known for its syrupy Slushies and a variety of grab-and-go foods laden with animal ingredients. But even it is beginning to change its way. Customers can find Lenny & Larry vegan high-protein cookies, That’s It Fruit Bars, grab-and-go , and more plant-based options.
Regular readers of this blog have been reading about Green Zebra Grocery, a Portland, Oregon-based that is about to open its fourth location, customers can choose from healthier takes on 7-Eleven classics like kombucha slushies and a full-service coffee bar, as well as fresh produce from local farms, bulk bin foods, vegan snacks, and offerings from local brands. said Lisa Sedlar, founder of Green Zebra Grocery.

Parents with children at home, either Millennials or Gen Xers, invest more time in preparing the dinner meal. The majority of meals are prepared and consumed in-home and it takes between 10 and 59 minutes to prepare and cook a family dinner. These types of invested dinners are forecast to grow over the next five years, according to NPD’s recent Future of Dinner study. As we discussed in our blog yesterday Yumble is a new solution for those parents.
