This shift towards delivery and other off-premises formats was already underway. Back in 2019, the National Restaurant Association predicted that by 2030 off-premises would drive most of the growth for restaurant sales.
Suffice to say, the pandemic sped that timeline up. In the words of Ordermark’s cofounder and CEO Alex Canter (whose family also owns famed L.A. restaurant Canter’s Deli), “10 years of progress maybe happened in a couple of months, not out desire, but really out of necessity.”
Out of that progress have come many different ways and tactics to approach delivery and takeout formats, from iterating on the virtual restaurant concept to altering the cooking process of the meal itself. This intelligence briefing for Spoon Plus will look at some some off-premises success stories to come out of the pandemic-era restaurant industry.
