The grocerant niche filled with Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh and prepared food continues to garner loyal followers. The sales equilibrium is swinging back to the restaurants and away from the grocery store sector according to Harry Balzer, chief industry analyst at NPD and author of "Eating Patterns in America."
Balzar stated recently "Right now, supermarket prices are rising faster than restaurant prices," Here at Foodservice Solutions® we think one oft over look sector of retail food service is the convenience store sector and by NPD’s account that sector is growing faster than either the grocery or restaurant sector.
George Bernard Shaw said, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” There is no greater gift that customer that loves your food, and will pay for it-but at what price?
Foodservice Solutions has developed a formula for customer focused pricing. Here it is:
Price + Quality + Service + Portability = Value
Incremental Value = Constantly Changing Menu (Seasonally / Sustainability with creditability).
