What’s the Next Service Style?

The pandemic made carryout and curbside service a necessity, but how much of that will carry into the future? FSD’s editors dive into how operators are getting food to diners today and explore the evolution of grab and go, delivery, chef-served stations, ghost kitchens and more.
