Trends & Data: How to boost traffic and enhance your foodservice program in 2020

Premium foodservice has become one of the driving forces of the convenience-store industry. If the past year proved anything, it’s that convenience stores can and will continue to compete with restaurants in the relentless foodservice battle. Last year, we saw chains tackle plant-based meats, tighten their menus and bolster their coffee varieties to draw customers to dine-in. But consumers are seeking newer foods at nontraditional times now more than ever before, which is molding how they shop for food and how c-store retailers will run their foodservice operations. So, the question remains: How can c-store retailers stand out in this competitive foodservice environment?
