How Far Can the Grab-and-Go Trend Go?
Premium grab-and-go options give hurried guests better food opportunities while they’re on the move.
Some grab-and-go concepts feature bars where customers can pick and choose what they want, package them up, pay, and go about their day. Beatrix Market in Chicago is one such place, with a self-serve salad, soup, and hot-food bar that stands alongside options like packaged nuts and chocolates. There are also pre-packaged entrées like the Smoked Salmon Box, which is “a balanced protein and healthy fat combination for an easy afternoon snack or light bite for lunch,” says Janet Kirker, associate partner with the brand, which was spun off the full-service Lettuce Entertain You concept Beatrix.
