Man eating hand-held sandwich

Sixty-two percent of consumers say they want retailers to offer more hand-held foods that are ready to eat and kept warm on display, according to new Technomic research. Your customers are after grab-and-go standards such as pizza, sandwiches, chicken tenders/nuggets/wings, french fries, onion rings and hot dogs, but they also want a variety.
