Taking it To Go
The trend is toward takeout
Today’s consumers use restaurants differently. Busy lifestyles demand takeout dining. And because diners increasingly can get their food where they want it, when they want it, the quality of takeout packaging is now more important than ever. With an assortment of containers, cups, lids and other supplies – plus services to help launch, or elevate, your delivery service program – US Foods® can help.
COME TO ORDER
Let takeout help your business take off. US Foods recommends ChowNow, the leading online ordering system for restaurants, to increase takeout revenue and keep business thriving. Restaurants increase their to-go business by 20% on average when using ChowNow – plus, a ChowNow subscription includes a marketing launch campaign.
Consumers are expected to increase usage of on-demand delivery. According to consulting firm Morgan Stanley, there is high demand for takeout. The potential food delivery market is $210 billion of a nearly $500 billion restaurant industry.

SUPPLIES THAT DELIVER
Factors directly related to food containers rank high in importance among consumers. The best carryout containers have thermal insulating properties to ensure that food arrives hot (or cold) when desired. Container sizes and shapes vary — many have dividers to help keep food from mixing. The goal is to provide an excellent presentation upon arrival.
