How will the pandemic reshape urban fast-casual concepts?

With fewer downtown office workers, many fast-casual chains are eyeing suburban locations or rethinking their business models entirely.

The fast-casual chain joins Shake Shack in offering seasonal fun while building brand awareness for kids and parents during the pandemic.

The coffee giant is banking on a new store strategy, its growing loyalty program and plant-based food to recover sales lost due to COVID-19.

The breakfast-heavy chains are adapting to changes in consumer patterns, which may be more permanent than you think, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The company has dwindling cash and is looking to close unprofitable locations and reduce its debt.

The company also announced that it is working with the Mayo Clinic to help with its coronavirus response.
