Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe has joined the growing number of restaurants adding groceries to their delivery menus.
Just last week, HT reported that Panera Bread launched Panera Grocery, a new service enabling guests to purchase grocery staples alongside their Panera favorites.
The newly launched Taziki's Market available at tazikis.com and through the Taziki's app includes five categories: produce, meats, dairy/breads/dry goods, deli sides/dressings and beverages. Various amounts of these items will be available to order for delivery or pick-up at select locations. The fast casual brands plans to expand the program in the coming months.
"Taziki's is focused on providing needed essentials for everyone adapting to COVID-19. When Taziki's customers choose menu items for curbside or delivery, they now have the option to also add other important grocery items," said Dan Simpson, CEO of Taziki's Mediterranean Café. "Our customers expect freshness when they think of Taziki's, that is why we're rolling out new ways for them to conveniently get everything in one place."
Taziki's Market items include:
- Small Fruit Bag: apples, oranges, a bag of grapes, and other seasonal berries for $15.
- Small Veggie Bag: Romaine lettuce, cucumbers, Roma tomatoes, onion, and a pint of housemade dressing, for $15.
- Large Veggie Bag: Romaine lettuce, carrots, Roma tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, onions, and seasonal vegetables that may include zucchini, squash, asparagus, for $30.
- À La Carte Items: Taziki's fresh proteins along with Taziki's basmati rice, pita bread and pastas.
A Bag of Best Sellers
The Cold Pantry Bag ($30) includes Taziki's signature scratch-made dips like Whipped Feta, Taziki's Hummus, salsa, along with customer-favorite Taziki's Pasta Salad with Baked Pita Bread.
To help their guests in their communities get the staples they need, restaurants across the country are adding groceries to their online menus, including Dickey's Barbecue, Beef 'O' Brady's and select Subway restaurants. Just Salad launched Just Grocery, a new delivery service with food and pantry staples, along with meal kits for some of its popular menu items, delivered in 90 minutes or less.
