HOW EINSTEIN’S BROS BAGELS BREAKFAST CAN BOOST OVERALL SALES
Breakfast isn’t just the most important meal of the day—it’s many consumers’ favorite meal, too. Even a busy morning or a rushed commute won’t keep consumers from picking up a toasty bagel, a hearty egg sandwich or a refreshing iced coffee along the way.
And the breakfast-food cravings don’t disappear once the morning has passed, either. This means convenience-store retailers have a prime opportunity to expand breakfast offerings—and sales—throughout the day.
Offering all-day breakfast leaves retailers with multiple priorities to juggle, including keeping their service fast, maintaining freshness and upholding high profit margins. C-store foodservice sales—which have fallen between 19% and 26% in 2020—are expected to bounce back strong in 2021, according to Technomic’s August 2020 Foodservice Industry Forecasts. Purchases are expected to rise as the economy reopens and more consumers begin commuting again—an estimated 26% to 36% more than in 2019—so c-stores must prepare for significant rises in demand to maximize their all-day breakfast program’s profitability.
Luckily, Einstein Bros. Bagels offers a solution. Already a fan-favorite brand, Einstein Bros. offers convenience retail solutions to solve the all-day breakfast puzzle. Einstein Bros.’ modular unit is a compact quick-service-restaurant designed to deliver the same high-quality, great-tasting convenient breakfast foods served at standalone Einstein locations—with a smaller footprint that’s perfect for convenience stores.
The modular unit offers a simplified, easy-to-operate breakfast platform that provides c-store customers with a quick stop for great breakfast food—familiar foods from Einstein Bros. Bagels that are fresh, nutritious and portable. Offerings range from classic bagels with a cream cheese “shmear” to savory egg sandwiches and pizza bagels, as well as ultra-trendy cold brew coffee in a variety of flavors. Installation includes all design, equipment, construction, and training support while keeping the initial investment low and the floor plan
as small as 130 square feet.
