The wrong packaging can make or break your diner’s experience. With a growing demand for takeout, delivery, and catering, restaurant operators should embrace an increase in packaging costs. Something so little as a higher quality material, or something innovative like an indicator to let consumers know their food may have been tampered with in transit is critical.
On this episode of The Takeout, Delivery, and Catering Show, Valerie and Erle speak with Jennifer Crawford, director of off-premise sales at Fazoli’s System Management, an Italian quick-service restaurant, and Ernie Davis, National Account Manager for Accurate Box, a box manufacturing plant that produces high graphics boxes. The group discusses what is quickly becoming a true differentiator for brands as more and more product is going the way of takeout, catering, and delivery.
