Episode 32 – C-Store Foodservice, Food News and New Products!

In this special unedited episode of Dennis Knows Food we’re talking about convenience foodservice and freshness to-go. 

When it comes to food from “c-stores” – even with convenience foodservice sales exceeding $34 billion dollars a year – negative consumer perceptions still exist around the category. Recent research has shown that there is plenty of room for continued innovation when it comes to foodservice in c-stores, and that putting quality first in certain areas can have a positive impact on food sales.


October 1st saw the celebration of National Pumpkin Spice Day, so naturally, our foodie fact for the week is inspired by pumpkins! The first pumpkin pies were not as we know them today. Discover their humble pie beginning in this episode!
