Fast-casual restaurants continue to grow by offering quality, wholesome menu options that attract health-conscious patrons—from millennials, time-crunched professionals to busy families. In addition to having a preference for “hormone-free”, “free-range” and “organic” ingredients, this audience is more likely to show loyalty toward establishments who are committed to environmental causes.
“Brands that establish a reputation for environmental stewardship among today’s youngest consumers have an opportunity to not only grow market share but build loyalty among the power-spending Millennials of tomorrow, too,” says Grace Farraj, SVP, Public Development & Sustainability, Nielsen.
Foodservice operators can positively impact their bottom line while attracting this environmentally conscious consumer group by making a few simple changes in their operation. For instance, operations that use disposable dishware can look into reusable alternatives to reduce waste, refuse disposal charges and ongoing cost of purchasing disposables.
How to Calculate Your Cost Savings
Cambro’s Dishware Calculator can quickly help you identify savings. With two simple numbers – the average number of disposables served each day and the cost for those disposables – you can easily see how much waste is generated on average each month.
