Cold Meals for Delivery – A Way for Restaurants to Better Serve Customers

The stunning speed of social distancing has brought many restaurants and food operations to the brink of closing. We assume you are is operating, but guest counts are down as patrons become more wary of crowds. At some point, sales may drop to the point where you close your doors voluntarily OR with little or no prior notice, local authorities may mandate closure of all public gathering places and/or people may be quarantined in their homes.

Prepare Cold Meals for Delivery!

Hot food is prepared to order and time is of the essence for its delivery, think Door Dash or Uber Eats customers. This makes for a labor-intensive operation with a limited delivery window. A more practical approach would be to make food, package and chill. This process has been used for patient feeding in many hospitals for years. Food is prepared, then quickly cooled until re-heated … in this case by the end user.

When food is delivered chilled, it can be prepared to inventory. Because the recipients will already be in their homes, chilled food can be delivered any time during the day. It’s also far easier to hold chilled food in a safe temperature range.

From a production point of view, trying to offer your entire restaurant menu for the delivery program will unnecessarily complicate things. Simpler is always better. Offer a limited number of interesting items (3-4) each day and create variety by changing the selection daily. Offer side dishes by volume (half pints, quarts, etc.) to make it easier for families. Pizzeria operators can offer a rotating selection of Take and Bake pies in small and large sizes.
