Many restaurant operators have asked us how they can expand their business without investing large amounts of capital to open new restaurants or concepts. There are numerous avenues in generating new revenue streams, but I caution restauranteurs and executives that they need to be deliberate and controlled in their decision making. And they need to be willing to support this organizationally and most importantly willing to invest in leadership to run their new venture. So, I thought I would share some proven success factors for one of these revenue streams, Off-Premises Catering via Take-Out and Delivery.
Take-Out and Delivery Catering can come in two different forms – more traditional catering where the food is fully prepared and ready to go such as individual grab-and-go box lunches or buffet items – or bulk items that are heat-and-eat such as Clover Food Lab’s Party in a Box. The benefit of this type of revenue channel is that you can launch it with a minimal capital investment as you can leverage your current kitchen facility and much of your current staff. Your kitchen simply prepares the food and everything else is up to the customer to plan on their own.
Through our experience we have found these as some keys in successfully developing and launching a Take-Out and Delivery Catering Program.
