Grocerants are growing at a double-digit pace and becoming more sophisticated foodservice operators.
This presentation will have SupermarketGuru Phil Lempert moderate an exchange with Gary Zickel, Manager of Foodservice Operations at Mariano’s, and Nat Caputo, a life-long fresh foods grocer, on The Future of Grocerants. All three are on the vanguard of the in-store dining trend that enlivens store formats, creates destinations and lifts store performance.

These sector leaders will share the next steps they expect to refine grocerants in areas of successful design, cuisine themes, menus, technologies, marketing, branding, food safety and cross-over with other store departments. One new angle they’ll cover, for example, is the partnering between supermarkets and traditional foodservice operators to bring customers all things food.
Their insights will help retailers decide where to best invest to sustain grocerant growth in different types of retail formats. Click here to register and attend.
