Margin Making Menu Solutions
for Quick Service Restaurants
The effects of Covid-19 are still rippling through businesses on a global scale, arguably none more so than the Foodservice sector. The foodservice industry has been hugely impacted in recent months due to lockdown, but it’s not all doom and gloom – there have been some sparks of positivity across the market. A recent study has found that 64% of consumers are willing and excited about eating out in restaurants if the tables are socially distanced and safety precautions are met.1 Combined with the rush of support provided by the governments Eat-out-to-help-out the scheme in the UK, as well as the staycationing tax incentives in Ireland.
A prime market example can be seen with the recent re-opening of McDonald’s restaurants – customers were so desperate to get the hands-on the indulgent dishes they had been missing that they formed large queues with no hesitation in the face of long wait times. With such high demand as this, the speed of service and efficiency will be even more important than ever before. With this in mind, we have pulled together your ‘must-have’ menu items specifically put together to meet the current and future needs of for your Quick Service Restaurant!
