Central Kitchens: Foodservice Operator & Retail Usage (2017) Central Kitchens: Foodservice Operator & Retail Usage (2017)

Central kitchens have become a critical link in the foodservice supply and value chains. Retailers have considered prepared foods a priority because of traffic and margin increases. As recently as 2012, retailers such as Target, CVS and Walgreens also have made a steady push into the prepared foods segment, as time-starved, quality-seeking consumers shy away from costlier restaurant meals. Additionally, certain QSRs, particularly coffeehouses, and some noncommercial operators rely on central kitchens.

Foodservice IP has developed a study to inform food industry suppliers of this increasingly important supply-chain component. A total of 250 operators using central kitchens (third-party and company owned) were interviewed for this report.
