The Grab-and-Go trend is on the rise in C-stores. NCCO products can help you maximize it.
For sandwiches and other to-go foods at convenience stores, the right packaging can make or break a sale. In addition to providing ingredients, allergen and freshness information for consumers, custom packaging and labels from NCCO can carry your brand outside the store — and let other consumers know there’s a grab-and-go destination nearby.
And for added measure, tamper-evident labels from NCCO will also help reassure customers that your food is wholesome and safe.
Speaking of food safety: Foodborne illness may be the biggest threat to your grab-and-go foodservice business. As recent, widely publicized examples show, rebuilding customer trust after an outbreak is an uphill battle — one that may not be winnable at all. Coupled with research showing many consumers do not trust the quality and safety of food sold in c-stores, there’s an opportunity to set yourself apart from the crowd with safe food handling practices. NCCO labels, along with food safety training and workplace safety tools, can play a vital part in preventing foodborne illness.
NCCO products can help you build a roadmap for foodservice success in your convenience store.
Selling a variety of grab-and-go food options is a great way to grow business for your c-store and investing in a Date Code Genie® automated label system is an essential tool to make this happen.
