Exclusive Brief: 

Foodservice offered by grocery and convenience stores is a far cry from the rotisserie chicken and hot dogs that were staples of these outlets a decade ago. Supermarkets and convenience stores (c-stores) are raising the bar on their foodservice offerings and an increasing number of consumers are choosing these outlets for their prepared meals and snacks in addition to quick-service restaurants, reports The NPD Group, a global information company.
