Paul Roberts, Director of Architecture and Engineering, and Kevin Sanders, Director of Civil Engineering, collaborated with Bisnow to discuss trends they’re seeing while working with quick-service restaurants (QSRs) -- including an increased focus on takeout, delivery and contact-free options.
Even as pandemic-related restrictions have lifted, Sanders noted that many customers still gravitate towards drive-thru and take-out over in-person dining, with Roberts adding that many restaurants have embraced new technologies and systems to allow online orders and minimize the time spent in an establishment.
