Ghost and Virtual Restaurants To Redefine Location Expectations

Ghost restaurants are physical restaurants, but are focused on the burgeoning delivery market. One Red Robin Chicago location makes deliveries itself when requests are nearby, whilst deliveries further out are completed by third party delivery platforms.


Restaurants in Grocery Stores To Attract Millennials

One foodservice trend in 2017 was restaurants inside grocery stores. These may or may not be extensions of a grocery store, with some being located inside, and others adjacent to stores. The concept looks to exploit potential synergies. Grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Hy-Vee demonstrate what can be done with their products, whilst providing pleasant experiences.


Barnes & Noble Offers Coffee To Bring in Booklovers

Barnes & Noble is normally not connected with consumer foodservice; however, the book retailer is now a player in the coffee space. In fact, café sales have become a significant share of the company’s revenue, with recent positive results. The idea of coffee shops inside its stores makes sense, given the synergies in the market. Furthermore, coupled with the smaller store concepts offered by the company, it seems in line with Amazon’s strategy for physical bookstores.
