The growing popularity of delivery and takeout is changing the look of units
Restaurant delivery and takeout business has grown significantly. Delivery now represents 1.7 billion annual foodservice visits, according to The NPD Group, and, as of April 2017, a quarter of surveyed U.S. consumers said they had ordered delivery in the past three months.
“Takeout and delivery are booming, with no end in sight,” said Tré Musco, president and chief creative officer of the San Francisco-based design firm Tesser, which has worked with Chili’s Grill & Bar, Papa Murphy’s and Wendy’s.
While a range of restaurants are creating dedicated takeout areas, each case needs to be considered individually.
