So much for restaurant self-delivery

We’re unlikely to see major restaurant chains try self-delivery anytime soon after the end of Panera’s service, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

A rise in vehicle thefts plus growing demand for delivery has created a dangerous situation, and drivers say they have few places to turn for help.

As the filing by Golden Corral’s second-largest franchisee demonstrates, filings by big operators and chains could still come even as sales improve, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Black Box, Facteus both say sales continue to best 2019 levels as consumers continue spending stimulus checks at restaurants.

Rumors persist of a potential sale involving the sandwich giant, but the brand may not be in a position to do so, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

An effort to organize a warehouse in Alabama was unsuccessful. And that could mean bad news is brewing for the foodservice business.

Chains like McDonald’s and Subway are leaving Walmart locations while others, such as Dunkin’, opt to leave convenience stores as chains focus on drive-thru units, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Reports of shortages of ketchup packets, pickles and even oat milk have come as supply chain challenges increase due to rising demand and a lack of drivers.

The experiments come as the barbecue chain and sister concept Granite City are finding traction with dual branding, ghost kitchens and new service models.
