With pandemic restrictions being lifted and the weather improving, dining in is coming back. An increase of in-store diners is causing some independent restaurant operators to ignore consumers that still want off-premise. But, smaller restaurants need to remember that many of their competitors – the mega chains – still offer the convenience of curbside and drive-thru. Consumers will choose convenience over quality. We see it in the lines of cars waiting in fast food drive-thru lanes.
People are out and active in the warmer months. It’s important for an independent restaurant to offer the same convenience to their on-the-go consumers that the mega chains do. In order to continuously build a relationship with consumers that will be loyal to them, they need to offer convenience along with a quality online ordering to-go menu year-round.
