How Are You Taking Advantage of the To-Go Trend?

Undoubtedly, your business is already take advantage of this trend. Whether you’re a restaurant offering carry-out meals, or a supermarket, deli, or convenience store offering to-go options.

Presentation is Key
At PJP, we talk all the time about how presentation is everything. This is just as true for a fine-dining restaurant as it is for a convenience store. If you want your customers to buy your product, you have to present it in a way that makes them want to buy it and eat it. The way the food looks, particularly in the packaging, is going to effect that. Make sure that you have the right packaging for the job.
What packaging is the right for the job? As always, PJP is here to help.
What makes good packaging?
Obviously the answer to this question depends on a variety of factors. What kind of food are you putting in it? What is your overall “brand” and how will your packaging fit into that? How will your customers be interacting with the packaging? All valuable questions to ask before you choose the right container for your product.
But, ultimately, there are some constants when it comes to choosing the right to-go packaging. One of the most important things is making sure that, no matter what kind of food you’re selling, the packaging makes the food look good. If you can’t see the food in the packaging, or you you can, but it ends up looking more like mush than an appetizing meal, you’ve probably got the wrong container for the job. Like we said above, presentation is everything. Get something that makes you’re food look great.
