Instore dining
BY ANDY NELSON
AFTER BEING HIT HARD BY COVID, instore dining and other grocery
foodservice options within the fresh perimeter are coming back -and
strong future growth is anticipated.
This summer, Encino, Calif.-based retailer Gelson's fully reopened all
of its self-service instore dining destinations: salad bars, hot bars and
soup and chili bars.
The company has also reopened its wine and tapas bars, which share
the same seasonal menu themes as the rest of the offerings produced
by its Gelson's Kitchens division.
Gelson's also sells Wolfgang Puck pizzas and salads in its Wolfgang
Puck Express and Kiosk locations. And in late July, the company
unveiled its first standalone sushi bar, at its reopened store in
Irvine, Calif.
The revamped store also includes refreshes of Gelson's popular selfserve
soup, salad and poke bars and a craft beer and tapas bar.
And more dining options for Gelson's customers are in the works,
said Abe Van Beek, corporate executive chef for Gelson's Kitchen
Support Team.

" We have a new catering program and website in development and are
still helping our customers provide wonderful events with the Gelson's
Kitchen help, " he said. " We do the work and you take the credit. "
Covid-19 changed the way people shopped, especially in freshly
prepared items, Van Beek said. And the pandemic made the Gelson's
Kitchen offerings that much more important to customers who couldn't
or were hesitant to go to restaurants.
" That combination enabled us to re-engineer and re-focus how we
can continue to support our customers and continue to provide them a
vast selection of freshly prepared food items, covering many ethnicities
and all dayparts, " he said.
Gelson's has retooled its menus to maximize efficiencies and
profitability, while also improving and cleaning up ingredients for a
more balanced nutritional focus.
The Kitchen division also leans heavily on the support of its other
store departments - for example, leveraging its meat department's
relationship with Certified Angus Beef, and its best in class fresh
produce offerings.
