If there's one thing the foodservice industry and foodservice operators are known for, it's good ideas. We're constantly amazed at how things evolve to stay relevant in a changing marketplace, and never was that more obvious than during the heart of the Covid pandemic. The bottom line is new ideas are what keep diners and customers coming back. It's what keeps them engaged.
That said, ideas are often hard to turn into reality. There are issues like staffing and budget. Supply chains can get in the way, as we've seen in the past few years. And sometimes an idea requires a piece of equipment in order to fully develop it into reality. This is certainly true for specialty retail situations in K-12 settings, on college and university campuses, and even in corporate office buildings.
The one common consistency between these three types of operations is that the ideal customer isn't there for the sole purpose of eating or drinking. In schools and universities, students are there to learn and teachers are there to teach. In business and industry foodservice settings, people are there to work and to produce. This means it's even more critical for operators to create mindshare for foods and beverages, and the easiest way to start is by creating attractive foodservice displays.
This is where versatility plays an important role. Sometimes it's beneficial to have the ability to create different types of displays based on the time of the day. Sometimes different menus or cuisine types might be served from one season to another. And when operators have aesthetically-pleasing specialty retail spaces, they can help cultivate a successful operation.
