Covered in this report
This report explores consumer attitudes/behaviors surrounding foodservice concepts in retail, specifically grocery retailing. “Foodservice concepts in retail” refers to any restaurants located in a store (this includes grocery-owned restaurants as well as partnerships with existing brands such as a Subway located in a Walmart) or any meals sold on-site that are created by store employees (ie not shipped in from a manufacturer). Hot soups, prepared sushi, rotisserie chicken, hot and cold food bars, and onsite alcohol bars are all examples of foodservice concepts in retail.
Foodservice in retail also refers to both prepared packaged foods (eg packaged employee-made sandwiches) as well as MTO (made-toorder) foods (eg a station located in the store where customers can have a meal made-to-order, such as a burger station). Throughout this report the phrase “prepared food” refers to both prepared packaged and MTO food.
Key points included
- Meal kits pose a growing threat
- Health is a leading barrier to purchase
- Supermarket share of food and drink sales is slipping
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Jill Failla, a leading analyst in the Foodservice sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Retailers are building out their prepared food programs to be more sophisticated and take direct aim at restaurants, as well as other retailers. They are differentiating with more on-site restaurants, which can range from a well-known quick-service chain to a fast casual restaurant helmed by a celebrity chef. And while fine-dining restaurants, food hall concepts, and bars serving adult beverages are all offering consumers an experience to remember, retailers haven’t lost sight of the importance of quick and affordable grab-and-go options. Mass merchandisers, in particular, are ramping up their prepared grab-and-go focus. Next, look for online ordering and delivery services to help grow prepared foods’ reach.
