In recent years, delicatessen operators have diversified product selection, expanding far beyond lunch meat and cheeses, to include prepared meal solutions, in-store sandwich shops, beverage centers and other specialties. Consequently, a well-managed in-store delicatessen (ISD) can play an integral role in separating a retailer from the competition and making it a destination choice for all shopping needs. ISD operators can benefit in much the same way, with the deli’s influence expanding throughout the store, yielding increased foot traffic and complementary purchases in other aisles (e.g., bread, snacks, beverages, condiments).
From a financial perspective, deli operations provide attractive margins, but face many challenges, including a continued sluggish economy, lack of consistent and continual deli foot traffic and purchases, and channel competition from supermarkets and non-supermarket retailers.
