If your operation is now running on a delivery/takeout-only basis, following the tips below will help you deliver the quality burger you’d deliver in-house, out the door.
Paper-lined aluminum foil
Foil keeps the burger hotter for longer with less moisture loss. It also helps protect the patty so it doesn’t dry out (cheese and cooked toppings also help with this).
Corrugated cardboard box
Corrugated cardboard boxes also do well and keep the visual integrity of the burger. And they recycle! If buns tend to get soggy, try ventilating the box.
Styrofoam clamshell box
In an internal test of three different packages for two different frozen burgers, Styrofoam performed the best when compared to all other options.
AVOID A SOGGY BUN:
No one wants a soggy bun. Try packaging it separately, or using a skewer to provide a little distance between the burger or toppings. Experiment with different bun types to see what works best.
Separation is key
Consider only offering toppings for delivery that travel well. Packaging condiments and sauces separately ensures everything arrives intact and tasting great. Plus, you can reduce order times when you provide all the toppings (separated by deli sheets) and let diners customize when it arrives.
BURGER PATTIES MATTER:
KEEPING IT DELICIOUS
Beginning with a high-performance product like TNT™ Burgers is a great way to guarantee fresh and tasty takeout and delivery. Because they are individually quick frozen, they lock in great flavor, aroma and texture. In internal testing, TNT™ Burgers retained these qualities longer than other patties when based on wait times of 10, 20 and 30 minutes.
