Have you overlooked your businesses takeout containers? With more and more diners opting for on-the-go options, ensuring that your takeout containers are high quality is more important than ever. With so many options on the market, it can be tricky to wade your way through all of the varieties. To help you narrow your search, we’re bringing you the three most important features of any to-go container.
One of the first things to target as you begin your search for the perfect takeout containers is options that reduce or altogether remove the chance of leaks and spills. Consider your menu as you look at your options. If you’re serving lots of soups or dishes with heavy sauces, you’ll need more durable containers than you might if your menu was mostly sandwiches.
Protect Food Quality
Considering your containers is about more than just stopping leaks, different foods will transport best in different containers. If you’re serving a steaming hot plate of fries, for instance, putting them in a closed container will ensure they arrive soggy. Meanwhile, a pasta or vegetable dish will stay warmer longer if its steam is trapped inside. By keeping these things in mind, you can help ensure that your food arrives in the same condition you sent it out in.
Make It Eco-Friendly
Modern consumers are more aware of their effect on the environment than ever. While they still may order from a restaurant that uses takeout containers that are harmful, like styrofoam, if you’re using eco-friendly and biodegradable materials they may be more likely to order from you frequently and will feel better about doing so. There are more options for eco takeout containers than ever before, and as new, compostable plastics develop it’s likely, we’ll see even more on the market in the upcoming years.
