[A-H] Making Sure Your To-Go Services Are Ready For The New Year

The start of a new year has already come and gone again. It seems the last couple of years have flown by with the entire nation affected by COVID-19, and the foodservice industry has been greatly affected. While most large chain restaurants were able to stay afloat, many small privately-owned restaurants had to close their doors. 

Another change that’s taken place is that to-go services have "blown up". Since March 2020 when the Covid-19 quarantines began, to-go services have more than doubled in the United States. It’s important that your business stays stocked with all the necessary to-go products it needs to sell whatever its customers order to-go.

Here are some great products that can help make your restaurant run more smoothly and satisfy your customers.

Tablecraft Drink Pouches 

Tablecraft to-go beverage pouches are a great alternative to paper, plastic, or Styrofoam cups. Drink pouches come in various capacities, and you can use them for more than just beverages, items like condiments, and sauces. Tablecraft beverage pouches also work well to transport food items that are wet like thin soups. Great for many uses in your restaurant, these translucent polyethylene drink pouches stand up, so they are easy to fill, and they are also easy to seal. These pouches are recyclable.

Cambro Insulated Delivery Bags

Cambro GoBags offer a perfect, high density insulated fit for every to-go meal you offer. GoBags keep meals hot or cold, protecting their quality, from your kitchen to your customer’s door. This heavy-duty solution offers stitched straps and a ticket slot your delivery driver can see through. Cambro’s custom-embroidered, extremely wear-resistant personalization rises above the standard iron-ons sold by other vendors. For all these reasons, Cambro GoBags are built to outlast other insulated bags. 

Made of thick, breathable nylon fabric that provides superior moisture control, GoBags are available in 9 shapes and sizes to snugly fit any meal for safe transportation. Flaps open and close easily, ensuring a tight seal. The interior is washable PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or simply vinyl. GoBags are lightweight, stain-resistant, machine-washable, and easy to store.
