Cheers to Barnes & Noble Kitchen

Did you ever ask yourself what’s with book retailers and food?  The team at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions® never has as they have and continue to nourish the intersection interactive participatory grocerant niche foodservice.
Barnes & Noble wants customers to toast the holidays at one of its full-service restaurant concepts that they continue to expand. Success does leave clues and the restaurant development program has proven to be one of Barns & Noble’s successes. 
Some of the new stores have a smaller-format footprint of about 10,000 sq. ft. with seating for 110 in the full-service restaurant and patio. The new format has a counter bar also offers wine and craft beers on tap. The company said the Kitchen was designed to be “a comfortable environment for customers to browse and buy.”
The menu offers a range of appetizers, salads, entrees, shareable items and desserts. Prices for entrees range from $14 for grilled cheese and tomato soup to $22 for plancha-cooked salmon with tabbouleh salad and basil dressing. Side vegetables are $4 to $5. Specialty coffees and other drinks are also on the menu. 
Retailers the ilk of Ikea, Tiffany’s, Tommy Bahama and Pinkies Liquor stores all have retail foodservice programs that are driving incremental sales and profits.  Is your brand expanding?  Would a grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat or Heat-N-Eat fresh food program make sense for you?
