Restaurants did a good job flexing their creativity and adapting to the pandemic lockdowns and social distancing measures. However, even as these businesses begin to reopen for inside dining, a significant number of consumers are continuing to exercise caution and opt for the convenience, speed and contactless features of order-ahead and drive-through service. In fact, according to a recent consumer survey on the health crisis’s impact on consumer behavior, an overwhelming majority of respondents are increasingly picking up family meals from restaurants that offer drive-through or counter pick-up services. In addition, brands that offer drive-through services and are therefore more apt to be located on an outparcel, are outselling their competitors located in strip centers. Not only is this good for many quick-serve brands but also the investors who own the property and/or the land on which those establishments sit.
