From the mouths of winners: “If you’re not in on this delivery thing, you’re going to miss out.”
This year’s winners of Hot Concept at the 2017 MUFSO conference confirmed the importance of restaurants have a strong delivery game.
As reported on Nation’s Restaurant News:
This year’s Hot Concepts winners may be a diverse group in terms of cuisine and style, but they all agree on one thing: delivery is a crucial avenue to explore in order for their businesses to continue growing.
“If you’re not in on this delivery thing, you’re going to miss out,” said John Sola, CEO of Real Concepts, which operates Public School on Tap, a nine-unit, full-service, craft beer-focused concept with a retro-school theme. Delivery, he said, is “something you have to pay attention to right now.”
The panelists all agreed that the consumers’ newfound love affair with Netflix combined with the ease of ordering amazing food from the comfort of their couch with a few swipes on their phones poses a challenge for restaurant operators.
Delivery from restaurants has indeed become increasingly popular, with a 7 percent rise in the past year, or 1.7 billion delivery-related visits to restaurants, according to data from the NPD Group.
Reasons customers choose delivery mostly has to do with convenience. The NPD Group found that 50 percent of consumers who use delivery do so simply because they didn’t want to leave home for whatever reason. Another 38 percent said it’s easier than cooking, and the rest choose delivery for the speed factor and to avoid bad weather.
