Prepared foods are on the rise in the supermarket industry, so much so that they are giving actual restaurants a run for their money. Modern consumer trends of growing health consciousness and desires of instant gratification are boosting their awareness of supermarket prepared foods. Ready-to-eat meals prepared by grocery stores are generally a healthier alternative to eating fast food, and they allow for a one-stop dinner and grocery shopping experience.
Supermarket Prepared Food Sales Experiencing Growth
According to the NPD Group, retail take-home food sales are expected to increase by as much as 10% by 2022. This has some restaurants worried, because this more than doubles their own projected growth.
