Recognizing that time-pressed Americans are increasingly looking for meal solutions rather than recipes, more than 50 grocery retailers will be attending Progressive Grocer’s Grocerant Summit in Northbrook, Ill., next month to learn how to define their strategies and implement profitable ideas for fresh prepared foods at retail.
Grocerant Summit takes place Oct. 20-21, 2015, at the Hilton Chicago Northbrook Hotel. Formal sessions on Oct. 20 will both lay the ground work for why grocerant matters and offer a glimpse of grocerant offerings of the future. Attendees will see what best-in-class solutions look like, what trends are driving demand for fresh prepared solutions, the consequences of failure, and how retailers can communicate effectively to gain a seat at the new American dinner table.
Day two focuses on practical implementation and winning strategies for retailers. Notable presentations include strategies for successful recruitment, retention and training; ergonomics and engineering of space for both grocerant employees and customer engagement; a panel of professionally trained retail chefs sharing what they bring to grocery retail; and tips for creating a culinary path that aligns with your banner.
Another key feature of Grocerant Summit is the Grocerant Solution Center, which includes demonstrations, food preparation and snacks and meals to inspire retailers as they build their grocerant offerings.
