Foodservice everywhere is evolving! Consumers today demand high-quality fresh, fast and portable food. And they're finding it everywhere food is sold—traditional restaurants and within non-traditional venues, via both commercial and non-commercial operations. Just as consumers don't segment their foodservice decisions by channel, the industry must benchmark, learn and network outside the proverbial box of their own channel. Everyone is competing for the same foodservice dollar, and everyone can gain insight from across the aisle.
