15 Mar Food To Go – Here To Stay
The retail industry and Food To Go (FTG) sector has seen many challenges, trends and opportunities in recent years. Operators and store owners continue to work hard diversifying and offering their customers a varied, sustainable and locally sourced healthy menu options whilst on the go.
The importance of shopping at your convenience store has become essential to local communities. Having an available quick service food option offers sustainable growth, increased basket spend, footfall and profitability. FTG outlets continue to outperform all other sectors within the UK food industry.
The customers’ overall shopping experience has improved with new-look modern stores fitted out to a high standard. With that, comes a growing expectation for increased service provisions on a selection of hot and cold food options to take away. Communities have changed their shopping habits reinforcing their support for their local businesses.
With consultation and support, operators are making informed decisions using innovative, commercial catering equipment and modern concepts to offer a fully scalable and adaptable FTG option for their customers. Working closely with market leaders we support them on their FTG journey: transforming convenience stores offering food, to food stores offering convenience.
The FTG concept has been developed from personal experience of operating successful fast food outlets for a leading global brand. Furthermore, extensive experience within supply chain management ensures our understanding of maximum efficiency and minimum disruption on day to day operations. We work closely with our customers: delivering fresh, tasty menus whilst offering a consistent, high quality finished product.
