Are Restaurants Turning Into Grocery Services?


Potbelly sandwich chain also recently launched a “pantry” section which also sells its ingredients with a line up of stacks of turkey breast, ham, roast beef, and salami. Panera is adopting the same idea as well, selling items like bagels, bread loaves, milk, fresh fruits, and veggies. While the Fuddruckers burger chain hasn’t announced a grocery service, some locations are testing out new solutions. Two Florida locations are selling grocery items which include toilet paper, bleach, and gloves.
While the grocery stores are facing shortages, restaurant sales have sharply declined. Restuarant traffic declined by 42 percent by the end of the week of March 29. UBS analyst Dennis Geiger predicts that up to 20 percent of restaurants in the U.S. could close permanently.","level":0,"displayType":"paragraph"}],"displayType":"section"}]}]; var articleType = 'ARTICLE'; var favoriteImage = ''; var articleDescription = ''; var slide_index = parseInt(0); var slide_json = createSlides(slides, articleType, favoriteImage); var initial_slide = slide_index; var initial_url = location.pathname + location.search; var base_url = '/2020/04/08/are-restaurants-turning-into-grocery-services/'; var next_gallery = '/2016/12/23/ex-brings-erotic-photos-to-exs-wedding-details-photos/'; var first_load = true; var has_scrolled = false; var title = "Are Restaurants Turning Into Grocery Services?"; var path = base_url
