How Do You Brand Your Foodservice Business?


Branding foodservice programs is critical if operators want to differentiate themselves from the competition and elevate their offering beyond the generic. Branding builds awareness and credibility, gives your offering an identity and educates the consumer about who you are and what you stand for.

There are two main ways to brand foodservice programs: leverage well-known recognized national consumer packaged goods brands and quick-service restaurant brands, or develop your own proprietary brand.

Branding creates customer loyalty as long as the brand truly resonates with the consumer and the offering is actually unique and differentiated. Branding also must be supported with a quality offering.
