7 drivers of the ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat grocerant food niche.

Restaurateurs continue to see an up tick in ready-2-eat and heat-n-eat take away food. When I pressed industry professionals, collectively they came up with 7 drivers. Not including fuel cost.

Here are 7 key items that “bug” consumers and are contributing to the growth in the grocerant trend. Feel free to add your own by leaving a comment on the link below or Email me directly at:

1. Waiters interrupting an important meal to ask if 'everything is OK?

2. Asking what composes a certain dish and getting shrugged shoulders for an answer.

3. Bad lighting.

4. Unclean table next to me

5. Stacking plate of food on top of each other. I don't want the bottom of other plates touching my food.

6. Grab the glass toward the top, near the drinking area.

7. Chewing gum while serving.
