The first step to establishing a good service through GrubHub is to develop your takeout menu. It is tempting to make every item on your menu available on the takeout menu. However, there are some food items that do not work out well through delivery. That is because they are too impractical or do not keep well during the delivery process. Once you determine what will be on your takeout menu, you can choose which containers and materials you need to have your food delivered.

Grab and Go Packaging

The next step is to find the right grab and go packaging for your food options. Grab and go packaging comes in many shapes and sizes, so it is easy to find something to accommodate your menu. Presentation and organization are two important things to think about. You can choose packaging that combines several containers into one compartmented container, or you can look for something like a VIP lunch package that combines the containers into one attractive package.

Soup Containers

One aspect of takeout that is often overlooked is the quality of soup containers. For your soup containers to be effective, they must also be the right size. Most restaurants pick soup containers that have half of an inch to one full inch of extra space. This ensures that the pressure from the soup moving in the containers won’t knock the lid off during the trip. Plus, it helps people avoid spills when closing or opening the container.

Appetizer Containers

Customers want to order whole meals including appetizers. Fortunately, there are a lot of options that you can use for appetizers. Small windowed containers are a good option. Plus, you can find containers that are bakeable so they are easy to reheat to give your appetizers the finished look and taste that you want. Small meal boxes are work well, especially if they are themed for your menu.

Entre Containers

Your entre containers make a big first impression, especially if they are windowed containers. However, there are containers for different styles of entres. For example, you can find containers for sandwiches that give them more support and keep them tightly packaged so that they don’t fall apart. There are also wrap containers that offer similar support in a different shape.

Dessert Containers
