Food & convenience store distribution continue to evolve
Food service retailers and convenience store operation used to be two very separate industries with completely different supply chains, but that has changed in recent years.
Now, traditional grocery retailers are opening convenience stores and many convenience stores are offering fresh foods and made-to-order meals like a quick service restaurant. Products can range in types from packaged and frozen foods to prepared and fresh foods, from cigarettes/tobacco to hard goods and general merchandise. These different products are distributed by retailers, wholesalers, and third party logistic providers.
With the development of these different market niches, different types of supply chain strategies are needed. Food service retailers and convenience store operations require extremely efficient distribution center operations to meet the tastes of consumers and the needs of the supply chain.
